Ten Whatchamacallits And Their Real Names via haha.nu.

Here’s a paragraph I wrote to try and use them in context (leave a comment with yours — or as many as you can get in):

Today was a bad day. I cut my philtrum shaving. As I was riding my bike to the workshop I got the aglet ripped off my shoe. I didn’t realize it until I was tying off at the bollard. Today’s project was to make a bookshelf. After my first cut I tried to clean out the kerf with my ferrule but it didn’t work. Suddenly I felt my keeper brake! I was so mad that I let the dingbats fly! I needed some ‘me time’ so I shut my eyes tight and saw the phosphenes shining bright, bought a bottle with the smallest punt, and got my tragus pierced. What a day!
