|Duck! I have gold tape!!|

Silence is Golden, Duct Tape is Silver
The other day when I was shopping for picture frames, I ran across this little gem:
I've never understood why people originally started calling this "duck" tape...do they think that there are several Mallards in need of repair flying around? Even so, I can deal with the many new colors and prints that Duck/Duct Tape has created. Heck, I've even purchased a few of them. They are more festive and happy and generally better suited for my purposes than the traditional "Industrial Pipe Repair Silver." But this? This is just plain wrong. I don't want my duct tape pimped out like some rapper's bling. Heck, if I popped off the label and strung this on a big fat gold chain, I could hang it around the neck of L'il Wayne and no one would probably ever know notice anything out of place. Duct tape should never be gold. Silence is golden--Duct tape is silver. I'm just sayin'.
