"Kentucky-based web developers Hitcents have created a website called Draw a Stickman that allows you to draw your own protagonist in a cartoon adventure.
When you land on the homepage you are asked to draw your own stickman (or woman) and they suddenly come to life before your eyes. At various different intervals you are required to draw your own escape route or weapon -- in one wonderful instance you are asked to draw a balloon near your newly-animated stickman's hand. Once you've drawn it, it falls to the ground and you are accused by your stickman of drawing an egg instead of a balloon. This hatches into a dragon, which you then need to fend off with a sword which, surprise, surprise, you have to draw as well.
I won't spoil the rest, but it's absolutely wonderful to play with and I highly recommend that you head on over to the site to give it a go. If you are feeling subversive then you can disobey your stickman and arm him with unsuitable objects..."
