Feng Shui Day!
What is Feng Shui you ask? That's just what we asked when our friend Ray Beckstrom became a Feng Shui consultant and started rearranging our furniture - which lead to a lot of shouting, eye-rolling, and eventually... Our Fifth Book!

Back in 1994 when we wrote "The Duct Tape Book" we didn't put "Book One" on it because we figured, "Well, that will be that." But NO! We started getting letters from people all over North America (and Guam, yes, we actually got one letter from Quam) people telling us of their uses and love for duct tape. So we kept writing books and Page-A-Day Calendars. And, they kept selling. To date we have sold over one million copies of our duct tape books!

This month we are releasing our fifth book about Duct Tape, "Duct Shui". Actually this book is a hybrid duct tape book that combines duct tape hints with the one and only parody of the extremely trendy ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui. And, true to Duct Tape Guy form, the book is "breathtakingly stupid" and "downright hilarious."

Who will like this book? Anyone who likes duct tape and/or humor. Anyone who's into Feng Shui, Anyone who has never heard of Feng Shui but would like to know what all the fuss is about. Anyone who can't stand Feng Shui... And anyone who wants some good, clean fun.

You can get your autographed copy today from the Duct Tape Pro Shop (with a complimentary Duct Tape Pro Bumper Sticker), or from your local bookstore.

Random thoughts about women and men…

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that constitutes the beginning of a new argument.

I have no idea who originated the control panel on the left, but we think it pretty much speaks for itself and to the truth of the Man/Woman thing.
(You can see other stuff like this that we cull from around the WWWeb at's As Seen on the Web. Warning: some of the stuff strays over into the "PG" area that The Duct Tape Guys don't like to cross with

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife. A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

Meet us at The Diner. We’ve had some great stories over the counter at the Duct Tape Diner recently. If you haven’t yet read the Diner contributions, stop by! This is where we invite our visitors to share their own duct tape stories. Just like these people did:

Cubicle Helper
We are very space constrained at out office and last year we had to give up our Dilbert-like cubicles and move into even smaller cubicles. That was bad enough, but the smaller cubicles also come with lower walls, only 3 feet high instead of the 4 feet of wall height than the larger cubicles had. As a result we no longer even had an *illusion* of privacy.

Well, enter duct tape to the rescue! I went to my local Home Depot and bought a bunch of styrofoam "boards" and with my duct tape taped these boards on top of the existing cubicle walls, adding an extra foot of height and giving back some privacy. As a bonus you can even use push pins on the styrofoam to tape up important papers. And with the duct tape holding it in place the walls are almost as sturdy as the original walls of our larger cubicles were.

My move was so popular that most of the people in department followed suit and borrowed my duct tape to add stytofoam walls of their own.

Admittedly it may not look the most professional but, heck, if the company is not going to provide us with decently private working conditions on their own then they have to put up with what we come up with. One co-worker got especially creative and duct-taped a large picture in a frame to the top of her cubicle wall. Somewhat nicer looking than the styrofoam most of us have. --- Debbie Cusick
