And The Doodle Winner Is…

Feelin' the love.
Feelin’ the love.

Holy cow!

I had no idea the Allegra Doodling Market was so strong. Last week’s contest was my most popular blog post ever!

I am flattered and I thank you.

Unfortunately, there can only be one doodle winner. So let’s get down to brass tacks, shall we?

Our judge and official ballot picker is ready for action. He is fair, impartial, and likes to wear weird hats.

1. meet boyHe drops the ballots into the Bucket of Impartiality.

2. ballots in bowlHe wields the Tongs of Selectivity-ness.

3. tongs of impartialityAnd he stirs…

5. stirring...and stirs…

More stiringand…stirs…

6. stirring....and… Oh, come on.


Just pick a name, kid! Everyone is waiting!

8. the tongs go to workLet this be a lesson for all you parents out there. If you don’t spank your children, they will grow up to become goofballs. And wear strange hats.

9. and the winner is...OK. I think Hat Boy is ready now.

And the winner is…

10. ta daaJo Robinson 176!

But that’s not all! You ALSO win an original Mike Allegra Story that will contain the five words you posted last week:


Congrats again, Jo!

And thanks to everyone who entered! See you next week!

  1. Yay for Jo! (I’ve gotta stop crying. I will, soon, I promise. Sob…) Great contest, Mike. Can’t wait to read your story with those great words! Your son just gets more and more adorable (don’t tell him I said that – tell him I said handsome. And he is a handsome devil.) P.S. Did he borrow your hat?

      1. You can pish all you want, but I moan and drone, whine and whimper because I know how delightful it is to own a one-of-a kind delightfully enchanting Allegra doodle.

  2. Dang, I knew I shouldn’t have used the word ‘otoscope.’

    Big congrats to the winner! These contests are lots of fun. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  3. How did I miss Doodlepalooza??? I think I was traveling when you held this very creative event! Love it, Mike! Oh well, I’m sure you could guess my 5 words if you tried hard enough… would have made an awesome doodle too! Your son is adorable (but don’t tell him that… say he’s “cool” instead, okay?!)

    1. I don’t know how you missed it! I was so looking forward to your entry — using words like thimbles, rotting fruit, falling, Christmas tree, and such. Oh, well, keep your eyes peeled, my friend. There will be another doodle contest in the summer.

      And I shall tell the boy you found him “cool.”

      1. So funny, I often call my son “the boy” as well! I promise I won’t miss the summer festivities… I really was traveling – in Pittsburgh, taking photos at a wedding I wasn’t invited to! So there’s another wacky story from me to tide you over 🙂
