I typed "one of these things is not the same" to another user in the Stouffers thread.. I had a feeling about it, so I looked it up - and sure enough it's changed.
I vividly remember the jingle - and the words:
"One of these things is doing the wrong thing.. one of these things is not the same."
It was the same if they used kids instead of objects.. (one of this kids is doing the wrong thing) - not very PC, but it was the 70s.
The phrases "doin' the wrong thing" - and - "one of these things is not the same" don't appear anymore..
This is the only example (residue) I could find.
That's for "doin' the wrong thing" - there is mountains of residue for "one of these things is not the same" - way to much to put here (just google the phrase with quotes).
It had a side teaching of the difference between 'thing' (noun) and 'thing' as a term for an action.
The jingle isn't the same anymore either.. Here's what it's like now:
I just discovered this - so I may be able to find more 'residue' as I go.
They are two separate phrases:
"doin' the wrong thing"
"one of these things is not the same"
There's tons of examples of people saying "One of these things is not like the other, one of these things is not the same." - but that phrase has NEVER BEEN IN THE SONG!
Neither phrase exists anymore. So if you remember "One of these things is not like the other" - then where's the "one of these things is not the same" part that follows?
..Does anyone else remember either phrase?

Let's be honest, if it makes no sense then damn, just walk away! Why must you feel the need to punish someone even more?
