let's hear it for the boys


Because mike keeps a neat and artistic shop. Because Atlas Cerise appreciates a fine product. Because Colonel Colonel can rip off a strip with the best of them. Because The Very Reverend Anaglyph has been known to DIY. Today we celebrate duct tape.

Around here we have a saying:

If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, throw it away and buy a new one.

Cissy Strutt said...

mike - Is that how you got your sexy new chainsaw?

AngryMan said...

Around here we also have a saying.

Women -- no pants allowed.

Cissy Strutt said...

A.Man: Around here we have a saying.

A dingo took my baby.

Malach the Merciless said...

I have something new, Duct Tape and Mighty Putty. Mighty Putty can fix the thing Duct Tape can't.

Pil said...

My guide to diy repairs is "If force doesn't work, more force will."

anaglyph said...

I'm of the view that when astrophysicists and quantum mathematicians finally figure out a Unified Field Theory they will discover that the four fundamental forces are all held together by duct tape.

Or 'gaffer' tape as it is, as we all know, more properly called.

Cissy Strutt said...

malach: Anything with the word "Mighty" in its name has got to be good.

pil: I need to purchase your guide.

anaglyph: Then, like the cow that can walk upstairs but not down, they will find themselves in a sticky situation - to tell, or not to tell.

I believe that science has found that the eerie ability of geckos to stick to ceilings is very small bits of duct tape.

I'm sure I read it somewhere.

Colonel Colonel said...

If Good King Richard (III) had had a roll of duct tape with him at Bosworth, the Yorkists would still be on England's throne and Charles Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Gl├╝cksburg would be a greenhouse worker somewhere in Leeds, muttering to the plants and scaring small children.



Oddly, the one thing duct tape will not fix is ducts.

C.Rag said...

Once I didn't have handcuffs around so we used duct tape. It was a bitch to pull off.

Chickie said...

I knew a kid whose car was mostly made of duct tape and bailing wire. Good stuff.

Cissy Strutt said...

anaglyph: What about the eerie ability of peanut butter to stick to the roof of your mouth?

colonel: Or ducks.

cuntie: I once pulled off a bitch. It was sticky work.

chickie: And he wouldn't have needed air conditioning. What a saving.

Atlas Cerise said...

Duct Tape is the best thing to have when babysitting. Or kidnapping. Or kidnapping babysitters.

Sara Sue said...

Wonderful magical duct tape!! Where I'm from (originally) they call it "Alabama chrome".

Cissy Strutt said...

Atlas: The worst thing about kidnapping babysitters is that they eat all the chocolate biscuits (cookies, to you).

sara sue: Good to know.

Atlas Cerise said...

Show me your biscuits!
