A man was driving along the freeway, when suddenly, a Highway Patrol officer came up behind him, with lights blazing and siren blaring. The man pulled to the shoulder, and the officer ran up to his car. "What's wrong, officer?" said the man, perplexed.

"Your wife fell out of the car about two miles back!" shouts the officer.

"Oh, thank goodness," says the man, putting his hand on the officers arm. "I thought I was going deaf."

Made in the USA and here locally. They even have a Duck Tape Parade, I guess because it's such a big employer and to boost sales.

Trivia: the original name was actually "duck tape", not "duct tape". The original was an adhesive fabric tape made for the army using cotton duck, a specific fabric weave. (Duck is one of the simplest canvas weaves.) While it was later used for ducts, it's mediocre for that purpose.

Most "duct tape" is made with an even simpler weave than duck, and sometimes the fibers are just laid on a plastic outer film rather than being woven.

Interesting.

For HVAC ducting, there is a dedicated tape just for that purpose. It is an adhesive backed foil and is very effective for sealing air leaks.

IIRC someone did a study and they found duct tape to work well on everything they tried it on. Except ducts.
