Following that event, we will be pitting our duct tape prowess against the engineers at DuPont Automotive Plastics at the McCormick Center in Chicago. This will be our first foray into the corporate world outside of duct tape companies. We're going to show them (we think) that duct tape can do anything that their specialty plastics can do - and do it cheaper and better!

Music to duct tape by:
2006 Stuck at Prom Voting Reminder
Why is it that Popeye always waits until Brutus (or Bluto, depending on which era your cartoon happens to be from) has nearly beaten him to a pulp and is on the verge of unconsciousness that he takes the spinach out and eats it? I mean, doesn't he have it with him at all times? If I was Popeye, the second it looked like a fight was going to go down, I would say, "Hang on a second please, Brutus (or Bluto), I just want to grab a quick snack here. I'll be right with you.".

Toothpaste Tube Fix Don't you hate trying to squeeze toothpaste out of an almost empty tube? I taped the rolled up tube to avoid the pesky re-rolling. - Matt L., Millville, PA
Rock and Roll Tape On Friday March 10, 2006 as I was watching a concert by Rhonda Vincent & The Rage at the Douglass Theater in Macon, Georgia, and Duct Tape became part of the show. During the first song Rhonda's microphone went out. She moved over to the next microphone and finished the song. The band moved the non working microphone from the center of the stage to the far right of the stage. After the second song while Rhonda was speaking to the audience, Josh Williams (guitar player) started working on the microphone. While he was fixing the microphone, Hunter Berry (fiddle player) ask the audience " Does any one have some duct tape?". Well that drew a large laughter from everyone. I sure wish I had taken my duct tape to the concert. That would have been "A Duct Tape Moment". - Billy

Tow Rope on a Roll Back in the seventies my brother Gary Bowling used four rolls of duct tape to tow a '64 Nova stationwagon over 18 miles of curving mountain roads up by Paines Creek in Tehama county, Callifornia. Two rolls were twisted and twined between a '58 Wilys pickup and a tire and two more rolls were twisted and twined between the tire and the Nova. They did it this way because the Nova had no brakes so the tire was to cushion the bummpers. My brother said they drove slowly but that the duct tape held up like a champ. my brother also feels that every applicant for citizenship should be required to own and know how to operate duct tape. Thanks guys for a great site! - Sharon Brown

|Worst Mascot Ever?
At a recent trade show we spotted this, possibly the worst and most obscure mascot that we've ever seen. It's a "Wagner Paint Remover" - but no, we still can't figure out what exactly it is supposed to be.All we know is that it was angry about something and scared the kids.
If you spot duct tape - snap a photo and send it to us. We'll add it to our Duct Tape Sightings pages. Make sure you tell us where the shot was taken!
