How To Make A Thing-A-Ma-Jig

DOODADS – Clickity clack, Clickity clack

DINGFORD – Whiz, bang, boom

FREEDISTANT – Whoosh, whoosh

HYGORICKY – Snap, crackle, pop

SCATEREEKUS – All sounds together

Very few families can get along without a thing-a-ma-jig.  While they can be purchased already assembled in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors, they are relatively easy to put together yourself.  Just follow these EASY directions and you’ll have yours put together in no time at all!

The  DOODADS of the thing-a-ma-jig kit are enclosed in a plastic gizmo and stapled with the yellow assembly DINGFORD to a FREEDISTANT.  The assembly DINGFORD may be placed upon any corrugated doomaflatchy or us the FREEDISTANT to assemble your DOODADS.  Carefully remove the plastic gizmo of the DOODADS from the FREEDISTANT and lay out the DOODADS on a clean acka-marackus.  Learn the name of each part of the DOODADS by comparing them with the assembly DINGFORD and assemble the DOODADS in the correct order.  You will also need a drill with a 3/16″ gizflunky for the HYGORICKY and a pair of pliers.  Using a watchafiggle, carefully punch 1/8″ whatnots through the assembly DINGFORD and FREEDISTANT where each HYGORICKY goes.  These whatnots are openings for the hoosis HYGORICKY used to fasten the DOODADS together.  NBow hammer the fammis to the hootenany and under the HYGORICKY, as shown on the DINGFORD.  If the order is reversed, the thing-a-ma-jig will not operate properly and SCATEREEKUS will result!
