A neat idea, I would have never thought of that.

In case anyone was wondering, the reference is to sculptor Auguste Rodin's classic statue "The Thinker" - you can Google that for many images of the original and its many reproductions.

Some definitions for an obscure usage of the word:

From the internet Free Dictionary (section on slang):

To noodle over something:

Inf. to think about something. Let's noodle over this problem for a bit and discuss it at our next meeting.

Use one's head*and*use one's noggin; use one's noodle

Fig. to use one's own intelligence. (The words noggin and noodle are slang terms for "head.") You can do better in math if you'll just use your head. Jane uses her noggin and gets things done correctly and on time. Yes, she sure knows how to use her noodle.

From the Grammarphobia blog:

Ever since the 1940s, to “noodle” (or “noodle around”) has meant to reflect on or ponder something, or to experiment, perhaps unproductively or without any particular direction.
