Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Thing-Ummy-Bob (Arthur Askey)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Thingummybob - WWII Worker's song
Toshiba used it for an advert in 1988. I'm shocked how little they changed. Just "especially when you FIND OUT what it's for" and "it's the girl that etc, etc, that works the thingummybob that's going to make some more".

I don't know how much intended irony there is in the fact that the girl in question, in the advert, is Japanese.
