: : : : The meaning of "whang-dang-doodle"?
: : : I'll do some research. But from the song lyrics, I'm thinking PARTY.
: : : Tell Automatic Slim , tell Razor Totin' Jim
: : : Tell Butcher Knife Totin' Annie, tell Fast Talking Fanny
: : : A we gonna pitch a ball, a down to that union hall
: : : We gonna romp and tromp till midnight
: : : We gonna fuss and fight till daylight
: : : We gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long
: : : All night long, All night long, All night long...
: : The Urban Dictionary says:
: : To a pitch a wang dang doodle is to have a good old fashioned Saturday night filled with drunken revelry, which may include but is not limited to fighting, dancing, singing and the like.
: : See also the song by Willie Dixon of the same name. (See above)
: Tnx for answering.This is the context of "my" phrase, its just enumerating,"it could be this and it could be something else,and it could be..."
: ...).." it could have been a whang dang doodle, a phylactery testifying to the pompetus of love, or cloche hat made out of coyote skin."
: There is a slang(no idea what part of English speaking world,but I found detailed exp. of this particular "meaning" on the net) of wang doodle as w.breast and wang dang doodle as penis. But I cant use that,since in the next line,the author(Stephen King) says."It could have been the penis of the poet Pindar.This guy was too far gone to know."
: I also found Wilie Dixon song,but supposed there must be an object,some kind of trinket from the twenties called wang dang doodle ,that initiated the party phrase,but perhaps forgotten now?
Interesting. I will look further and see what I find. I have already looked in a black English book and didn't see the word at all. I have some pretty comprehensive dictionaries -- like from the DARE (Dictionary of American Regional English) project. But they aren't up to W yet!
