Scribble Picnic's full of suprises. Watch Out!

Watch Out! when you go to the woods today because the wolves might be having their own picnic! And I'd really rather not lose any one of you.

You remember my Red Riding Hood version from last year whilst in England? Well, consider this the updated one, perfect for this week's theme. So, how about you? What did you consider worth a warning? Sign up below and let us know... before it's too late! :)

Scribble Picnic's Black and White Samplings!

What's black and white, black and white, black and white?
- A penguin falling down the stairs!

Sorry, heh, just couldn't resist. One of the few jokes I remember from my good ol' days at Glengyle Preparatory School in Putney.

I know. Penguins are perhaps a bit predictable for the theme but I worked on giving these "chinstrap" penguins (as they are called) some individual character and took ages redefining the lines, negative spaces, etc, until finally arriving here. My fave part? His bendy wing* holding onto that cozy scarf lest it blow away. You know, sometimes you've just got to rise above the predictable clatter and strike your independence... tuxedos aren't for everyone!

Your turn now to share cheesy jokes and something black and white for us all to sample — um, visually, that is... unless they're Oreos, of course! I'm guessing no one would dare munch on penguin blubber, would they? Surely not. Is that even legal these days?

*Come to think of it, is it "wing" or "flipper" for a penguin? I'm not actually sure. Haha.
