Slap Sticks

It’s tough for me to write about websites like Draw a Stickman without giving away the thing that makes them so wonderful. Even if I were to describe it to you, it wouldn’t be as much fun as clicking over to the site, drawing a stickman using your mouse and following the instructions that pop up. You don’t have to be a great artist to enjoy the minor masterpiece that unfolds. You only have to have been 10 years old and stuck in a boring classroom, with only a No. 2 pencil and a Pee Chee folder to create a means of escape.
