The mysterious drawing

This morning in our lab conference room I had a meeting with my students, during which we never quite looked at the whiteboard at the front of the room.

Only after the meeting did I notice an odd little drawing in the lower left corner of the whiteboard. I have no idea who drew it:




 

I found the drawing a bit puzzling. Clearly it’s a picture of a dragon, and drops of water are coming down from a cloud, and the dragon is breathing fire on the drops of water. Beyond that its meaning seemed a mystery.

Suddenly I had a revelation. I called over the students, and pointed to the board excitedly. “Do you know that that is?”

None of them had an answer.

“That,” I explained, much too pleased with myself, “is a dragon drop interface!”

    The dragon is Trogdor ( http://www.hrwiki.org/wiki/Trogdor ) from this Homestar Runner cartoon ( http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail58.html ).
