Inspired by every other word my stepdad says being “fingmy” (I think it’s an Essex-ified version of “thingimy”).
“We should fingmy over the fingmy… fingmy” is something he’ll say multiple times a day about completely different things
My mum’s on the other hand is “wosname”
Mine is “you know”, which is silly because obviously the person I’m talking to doesn’t know.
good one! and reminded me that my friend refers to people she can’t remember the name of as “fishface”
Also ‘you know’ and also ‘the other one’ for some reason. Think I might have picked it up from Jim Royle.
no offence intended to any fish reading this
“Fingamibob” was a thing when I was younger
As in “can you pass me…you know…the guy…for changing the thing”
My dad would occasionally refer to the ‘plinkyplonk’.
Was a bloke at my old work who called it the ‘doobryfirkin’ which I was a massive fan of.
Is your dad an In the Night Garden fan?
I was going to add that this was a long time before In The Night Garden was a thing…
Besides, that’s a Pinkyponk isn’t it?
I always heard it as oo-jim-a-flip.
Would wotnot be one? Had an R.E. teacher in primary school who said it in pretty much every sentence.
Or is it just said as what not? Blaaah I’m talking rubbish aren’t I?
Think you are right actually, I am going to claim the “h” is silent in mine then.
