Can I have my double entendre quadrupled, please?

When I was travelling in America, I'd piss myself laughing everytime I saw an ad for a 'Presidential Doodle' exhibition, or a bag of Cheez Doodles.

Well, you'd never have thought it, but the Americans have been bested in their own double-entendre efforts by the British. By no other institution than a church charity...
Oodles of Doodles

This year we are going for a very 'handmade' look, and as part of the design we want to illustrate the gospels with doodles from students, supporters, Relay Workers and Staff Workers so we still need your help!
People are urged to 'submit your doodle', 'choose a concept and get doodling', and asks of readers, 'Why not spend 10 minutes of one CU meeting getting everyone to have a go at a doodle?'

I got this news from the very funny Dave, who nevertheless fails to note the rather, um, important double entendre. Guess only Australians get that particular item of vernacular, then.

Not just Aussies, Kiwis too :D

I'm afraid the rest of us still have no idea what you're talking about.

I even did a google search for 'Doodle Australia'. Nothing!

Hey, it should be fine as long as you don't go using it in any hymns.

Ah yes, Yankee Doodle Dandy and they still wonder at the fits of giggles.

This might be of interest.

"Why not spend 10 minutes ... getting everyone to have a go at a doodle?"

Indeed, why not.

They'd be far fewer wars if this was more common practice.

As for illustrating the gospels with doodles, I don't understand your amusement Timmy. A stupendous and obvious idea when you consider the amount of begetting and begatting that goes on in the gospels.

Would there have even been a Sodom and Gomorrah without a plethora of doodles, hmm?

The Bible: too much doodle, not enough flapdoodle.

Or should that be the other way around?
