This important message brought to you by the Duct Tape Council of America.

Actually a friend of mine swears that the water of the Atlantic Ocean cured his warts. He said some small warts he had on his hands for several years vanished after daily swimming in the waters off Wildwood, NJ while working a summer job there.

I don't have any theories on why that worked for him but it does seem to go along with some people's belief in the healing power of the ocean.

Y'know, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

bikini wax. no, no, no, no, no!!!

Doctors can freeze them off with chemicals, called cryotherapy, but the treatment can scare children and may not be as permanent.

hehehehe, the fact that it said it can scare children TOTALLY made my day!

I've never used duct tape on a duct. Have you?
2002-10-15 12:45:10 AM  
It's no good for ducts. It dries and comes off after a while.

Yeay for duct tape! Once in middle school I had a black backpack that I covered completely in duct tape. Then put over a thousand safety pins in it to make it even better. I used it for about a year or two, then security decided it was a "potentially dangerous weapon". So much for my creativity.

Hey I have a dress just like that..most. glamorous. dress. ever. I wore it to prom and didn't wear anything beneath. I had no problems, well except I had to readjust myself and check every like 5 seconds. meh, i looked good, dammit!

Someone with genital warts is going to injure themselves horribly.
2002-10-15 12:49:34 AM  
In my studies the only thing duct tape sticks to as well as advertised is itself. Ever try to get a piece unstuck from itself? Can't do it. It fuses itself together. Good thing cars arent made out of it, otherwise fender benders would have more humorus outcomes.

More proof that you only need two things in this world to fix anything. If it's not moving and it should: WD40. If it's moving and it's not supposed to: duct tape.

Pretty soon they'll find that applying duct tape or WD40 kills cancer and cures AIDS.

Naked cowgirls. Hmmm. That could go either way.

Anyone ever see that episode of Three's Company where Chrissy had a wart, and then the Ropers overheard her talking about how she wanted to get rid of it, but they thought she was pregnant and wanted to get an abortion? Funniest episode ever. Especially the part where Mrs. Roper tells Chrissy that her friend had one [a baby] that weighed 10 pounds, but Chrissy thought she was talking about a wart. Funny!

I can see a naked cow right now.

OBB - Nice Red Green reference.

That show is one of the best things to come out of Canada, other than The Kids In The Hall.

sorry. i'm bored.

Eddie Cochran invented naked cows.

Screw duct tape. Gaffers tape is where it's at (for those who know).

I was just about to mention that, B0rg9.
2002-10-15 12:56:45 AM  
Anybody who has ever worked stage, lights or props is in love with gaffer's tape.
2002-10-15 12:57:34 AM  
I am a wart-covered naked cow.
2002-10-15 12:57:45 AM  
but can gaffer's tape cure warts?
2002-10-15 12:57:45 AM  
Yes, it exsists. www.ducttape.com
2002-10-15 12:58:02 AM  
Damn, Barbie. Sounds like you could use a roll of Duck Tape (tm) brand duct tape.

"Verruca vulgaris" wasn't she a character in Willy Wonka?
2002-10-15 12:59:03 AM  
Oh wait, that only works on ducks.

Why do I have the feeling that A LOT of Farkers have experience in the drama/audio visual club??

Reactron: As I kid I thought it was called duck tape
2002-10-15 01:00:39 AM  
I was on the stage once in a while. Not props or lighting, though. I was always riding shotgun.

Gaffer. One who makes clumsy social errors ?

Duct tape isn't what it was in the past. Degrades over time, doesn't stay together... Not even suggested for use on ventilation _ducts_ because it doesn't adhere well enough to make a good seal. In other words, it can't even do the job it was created for. Now the different types of military-grade tape, that's good stuff. Whether it's the 100 mph tape they use to keep things stuck on planes, or the kind that won't break down under extreme chemical conditions, now that tape is for real men (and women). Pick up a roll of that and tape a small child to a tree (muah) Perfect cure for warts and misbehavior! Though plastic wrap and a hair dryer works better...

I have had experience on stage Pixieberry

Duct Tape

Dave walks into a bar and sees his friend Paul slumped
over the bar. He walks over and asks Paul what's wrong.

"Well," replies Paul, "You know that beautiful girl
at work that I wanted to ask out, but I got an
erection every time I saw her?"

"Yes," replies Dave with a laugh.
"Well," says Paul, straightening up, "I finally plucked
up the courage to ask her out, and she agreed."

"That's great!" says Dave, "When are you going out?"
"I went to meet her this evening," continues Paul,
"but I was worried I'd get an erection again. So I got
some tape and taped my penis to my leg, so if I did,
it wouldn't show."

"Sensible" says Dave. "So I get to her door," says Paul,
"and I rang her doorbell. She answered it in the sheerest, tiniest dress you ever saw."

"And what happened then?"

(Paul slumps back over the bar again.)
"I kicked her in the face .

I can't get my mind off of Tia's naked cow warts.

Andonbray and Reactron: Grroooan!

Green 100 mile an hour tape!
2002-10-15 01:03:56 AM  
BB, believe it or not, there really is a Duck Tape brand. But, like I noted, it only sticks to naked ducks. With warts.
2002-10-15 01:04:28 AM  
I'm a drama geek! Yay!
2002-10-15 01:06:35 AM  
Gaffer: Head electrician on set. The 'old man'.
2002-10-15 01:06:57 AM  
Reactron: Have you ducked-taped a naked duck with warts before?

2002-10-15 01:07:21 AM  
100 m/h tape is waaaaaay too expensive. Gaffer's is bad enough.
