Back in the 50’s a comedy writer named Roger Price created something that America came to know and love as a”Droodle.”  A Droodle is the melding of a riddle and a doodle.  Basically, Mr. Price would draw a simple object  from an obscure angle or perspective and then ask his audience to guess what it was.  Droodles have shown up in books, TV game shows, newspapers, greeting cards, websites, and in the creative minds of young and old alike.

Although I give you the answer right off the bat, here’s my contribution of a  “Vert Droodle.”  (Hint:  we’re looking down at Vert from above)
