Pronunciation: doot dad

Sentence: Mom fiddled around with dad constantly. She especially loved his bald head. It was her favorite trifle. Every morning she would do it up right, and give it a real 'do'. Man, oh man! Could she really do it to it! She sprayed it with water, shampooed it, rinsed it, pumiced it, rinsed it, brushed it dry, waxed it spotless, then polished it to a bright snow white glaze, and topped it off with a kiss. It was mom's favorite doitdad!

Etymology: DO IT - as in "do it to it" ... DOODAD - a trifling!

Yes, and it sounds like cajouling to dad to "do it"! (All the things many dads are made to do)!
