1887, Franklin Ulrich. It was the year that the first "Daimler" automobile was released. Due to popular demand, this car sold out around 400 units in its first month. It was a salesman that forgot the name of the Gasket - this lingo was new and fabulous to them. He replaced the concrete noun of "Gasket" with "Whachamacallit". He was fired. Oops.
