This is Spinal Tape
OH, MY ACHING BACK! NOW I CAN FINALLY GET A SPINE!
I could really use this to fix my broken back, say no more. Much more pleasing to the eye than gaffers tape – “Duct” tape to the great unwashed. Oh, and it begs to be used as a nuanced decorative touch for my monster shredder guitar. One lowercase, quite useful common vowel, is all that separates this product from incurring the unholy wrath of Christopher Guest.
Gaffer’s tape isn’t the same thing as duck tape (duct tape to the inaccurate). Gaffer’s tape does not have the plastic all-weather coating; it’s more like muslin that’s very sticky on one side.
There’s a fine line between clever and stupid
They don’t ship to the UK, don’t waste your time, British readers. Shame. I’d have a couple of rolls of this like a shot.
Awesome, but not quite as great as “I Can’t Believe It’s Pot Butter”.
My God! It’s full of win!
This tape goes up to 11.
D’oh! I was going to post that it’s tensile strength of 11…but you kind of beat me to that joke.
That should end up in some design museum…
Good name . . . but so is “The Rolling Phones” one of Cape Breton Island’s first mobile phone dealers.
This makes so much sense, why didn’t I think of it?
Or the all-black, electrical tape version: Smell The Gluten.
