Mensagem: 

We use the word "thingamajig" (or dookickey, whachamacallit, etc.) when we do not know the correct name of an object.

 

I am having trouble with the motor of my car.  I think it is the thingamajig near the radiator.

 

What is the name of the thingamajig just below the kidney?

 

I broke the thingamajig on my watch strap.
