“thingme-dealey-bob” – care to have a go at defining it?
You, know, one of those whosits with the whatchamajobber on it.
I’ve never heard of that one. It looks like a combination of “thingamabob” and “dealie”.
thingme-dealey-bob, n: gizmo
Oh, you know, it’s the thingamajig. The whatsit. The hooja. Picks it up and waves it up and down. THIS THING!!!
A precious shiny object.
I would argue that a gizmo is a machine of some sort, wheras a thingme-dealey-bob would be more like a whoojamaflip, or in Ireland, a “yoke”.
It’s one of those majigs, ya know, the kind that does that thing.
It’s like a spinnymajig, only it doesn’t spin and it’s shiney like a whassit but round like a dinglybob. I think.
Ask Ariel. She’ll know.
I once looked in a dictionary that defined a “thingamabob” as a “thingamajig.”
And vice versa.
Not to be confused with “doofunkus” (a person whose name you can’t remember or don’t know).
What she said.
It’s a hoodely-whatsis. You know! The thing that does the thing!
It’s a hootermeratis for a frammis device.
What a bunch of poseurs.
Every crafter of Southern-speak knows that a ‘Gee-Haw Whimmydiddle’ covers it.
If it isn’t that, then it’s a dingus.
Lordy-be. Whattum I gonna do with y’all?
I call mine Bob.
The thingamabob that does the job is bippity-boppity-boo.
Yep. I know exactly what all y’all are refering to.
The wossname…you know, that.
It’s a hoozismacher/veeblefetzer/feeblevetzer/potrzebie.
