A dingus is something you don't know what it does while you know what a doohickey does but can't describe it.

But what about a thingamajig?

Hsoi,

A thingamajig is what can be used to replace a doohickey but you might need to a whatchamacallit to get it to fit.

A dingus is usually the moron holding the weapon who asks, "what this doohickey?".

Dave said...

A dingus is what prevents a gun going into full-on flibberty-gibbets if the doohickey breaks off... everyone knows this...

The doohickey got lucky?

Dinguses are external bits, doohickeys are internal bits. Thought everyone that?

When your dingus gets caught in a doohickey, much screaming ensues.
