I spent some of my growing up years near the IBM Country Club in Sands Point, LI. People in those parts used to say, "THIMK."

@Hush6: "THIMK" was a popular response to the well-known IBM slogan. It inspired many cartoons and even a short-lived satiric magazine in the "Mad" mold. See http://bit.ly/aIYoWF and http://bit.ly/9G0L4G.

Thank you for the laugh and the homework. I had a feeling it was bigger than local people making jokes, and the late '50s timing of the magazine meshes perfectly with my memories. One thing's for certain: no matter how you spell it, it's a pretty stale idea.
