Duct Tape

Postby skimilk » Thu, 15 Sep 2005 5:05 pm

Okay, stupid question...

Where can I get duct tape around here? The local supermarkets don't have them...

And in case you're wondering, yes, it's for a costume... :o

Do you mean the really strong silver stuff? the brown stuff for parcels? or the electricians tape that comes in many colours?

Have you tried Popular?

yeah, the silver one...I realize how this question makes me sound like a dumb-o but I never had to buy it before so I have no friggin' idea......Thank god for the anonymity the internet provides... ;)

Anyway, I haven't tried Popular but now that you mentioned it, I would. I just hope they carry them or I'd just stick with foil...or wax paper...

Thanks! :)

Every DIY in a variety of colors and widths.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Duct tape is awesome. A roll or twenty will push your car servicing back a few months.

This is a fabulous book for those with a creative spirit and are compelled to use Duct tape as their medium...

There has got to be a good joke about him in the new Visa ad (which is driving me up the wall at the moment it is on so much :mad: )

Perharps all the birds fly into the sky & all the hamsters run out of his arse, gotta be good luck for the hamsters
