            The term duck tape predates the term duct tape and was named for the duck fabric in the tape.

                It’s duct tape. There’s all sorts of conjecture and urban myth. Doesn’t matter. It’s duct tape.
                What’s bizarre is that current duct tape is entirely different, not cloth at all, and the original duct tape is horrible stuff that has the adhesive dry up and turn to powder.

                          The best Red Green idea ever was when he converted an old wringer washing machine into an automatic fence painting machine. It was sheer genius!
                          That was an awesome show, truly part of our Canadian heritage. Like Tommy Hunter and Stompin’ Tom Connors.

                            BTW I checked out the history of Duck Tape and duct tape. They are two slightly different products. The silver stuff that everyone had in their toolbox is, in fact, DUCT tape. The green stuff for ammo boxes is a different product.

                            A small boy was walking past an old man's home carrying a roll of chicken wire. "Where you going with that roll of chicken wire?" the old man says.

                            "I'm going to get me some chickens". Replies the boy.

                            "You can't get chickens with chicken wire!" the old man hollars.

                            An hour later here comes the boy, dragging the chicken wire with a bunch of chickens, all clucking and tangled up in the wire. The old man just looks at the boy in amazement.

                            The next day the boy walks past the old mans house carrying a roll of duct tape. "Where you going with that roll of duck tape?" the old man says.

                            "I'm going to get me some ducks". The boy replies.

                            "You can't get ducks with duck tape, you crazy boy!"

                            An hour later here comes the boy, dragging a bunch of ducks, all quacking, wrapped up in the tape. The old man just stares in amazement.

                            The next day here comes the boy carrying a bundle of pussy willows.

                            "Hang on boy, let me get my hat, I'm going with you!"

                            Sorry Donald it's Duct Tape

                              Whoever here wraps ducks in tape is definitely up to no good.



















                              So they don't explode when you do what to them?





















                              Shame on you.
