ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

Realistic Duct Tape Rose
‘..and here’s your real present’. Best deadpan humor of the day.
Hmm. I have tape in blue, yellow, black and silver. Kinda weird roses … Yellow with silver leaves? Black roses with blue leaves? Just as well I got him a real present …
Wouldn’t a duct tape rose say, “I’ll stick by you…”?
Or possibly, “Get in the trunk.”
