HOW TO BUILD A THINGAMAJIG
Doodads: Clickety-clack, clickety clack
Dingford: Whiz, bang, boom
Freedistant: Whoosh, whoosh
Higoricky: Snap, crackle, pop
Scatereekus: All sounds together
Very few families these days can get by without a thingamajig. Sure you can buy one at the local
hardware and appliance store, in all sorts of colors, sizes, shapes, makes and models, but as easy
as they are to build yourself, you should just get a kit and put it together. Here are a simple set of
instructions for building your own thingamajig…
The Doodads of the thingamajig kit are stored in the bubble-wrap gizmo and are stapled
with the purple assembly Dingford to the left-handed Freedistant. The assembly Dingford
should be placed in an upright position on any corrugated doomaflatchy or Freedistant to
complete assembling the Doodads. Carefully remove the gizmo from its containeration of the
Doodads from the Freedistant and lay out the Doodads in parallel with the assembly Dingford
and assemble the Doodads in the order listed. You will need two fringhoppers with a 4/3”
gagglehump for the Higoricky, and you’ll have to use penpoppers to complete the riggeration.
Using a witchifiggle, carefully punch 1/2” what-nots through the assembly Dingford and
Freedistant, where the Higoricky will attach. The what-nots are there to capitrate the hoosie
Higoricky that will beefling the Doodads together.
Next frammis the chingus to the Freedistant, making sure the whatchamacallits are catiwompus
to the hootnanny and the Higoricky, as shown on the assembly Dingford. If it is reversed, the
thingamajig will not work properly.
Tighten two fistaroud valves underneath the Freedistant using the hickeys from the Doodads to
join one doodad to the other. Now refracker a jigger to the the demisantis and the doorfunkey
near the whatchamacallits. Put a dingus on each loose enough so that the thingamabob
can discombobulate and rotate easily, or it might XXXX and fly off and hit someone in the
That finishes the instructions. If you’ve followed them carefully, you should have a well running
thingamajig when you turn over the Scatereekus.
