What's a DoodleBug?
In the Oil industry, a "DoodleBugger" is not someone with some kind of deviant behavior but is in fact someone who works in seismic exploration. It took us nearly six months to name DoodleBug. I don't think it took us that long to come up with a name for two or three kids. Ok, it was three but naming a boat is serious stuff. Annette even bought a book on boat naming. With offspring you have to consider what they will be called at school, how the name will sound if they adopt a new surname following marriage, if they win a Nobel prize etc. This is easy. With a boat name you have to consider how it will sound over the radio.
Anyway, "DoodleBug" won out over "Tootsie Pop" but it was close.
A DoodleBug is alleged to be a small dung beetle that drills a little hole with his rear end every couple of inches as he moves along. Anyone who has any experience of seismic exploration on land will see the immediate corollary.
A DoodleBug is also the name that was given to a WW II cruise missile of German manufacture. Yes, I knew that. No, that ain't it.
