Brand Name Tape

A piece of advice for Pingers: always, always buy brand name tape. Oh, sure, it may be tempting to get the drugstore’s special 39 cent tape. But I have seen horrors come from it – lots of aborted rolls, uneven cuts, and even dull cutting blades. Save yourself the annoyance and get a real brand – just like with Q-tips.

I'm trying to imagine what possible scenario prompted this ping. ;-)

I do agree, though. 3M definitely rocks when it comes to tape.

Man, you must have been really stuck for something to write about today?

But I can relate to this with other types of consumer products though.

It's hard to imagine that boredom could have prompted this ping, or he has been fighting with the tape and Q-tips. I do agree that good quality at a higher price is much better than a cheap price and poor quality. But I never use Q-tips in the first place. All they do is push the wax down in the ear. Shame on those who dare to use Q-tips in the ears.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
