The Many Uses of Duct Tape


I love this creative window display in Mayday Hardware on Washington Avenue, Prospect Heights. Is there something of the American “can do” spirit in a sign boasting that this is just one of “the many uses of duct tape”?

    You obviously have yet to appreciate America’s obsession with duct tape. Have you ever heard the quote; “if you can’t duct it, fuck it”? Nice site.

    Nope, never heard it. I must have been hanging out in the wrong places 🙂

    I can appreciate the many uses, but one of the reasons it has gained such esteem is its potent adhesive qualities. The LAST way I would ever use duct tape would be to make a dress out of it. That would be a million times more painful than waxing. I hope the shopowner realizes that that mannequin is ruined.
