Tuesday Trash Bubbles: E6000 & Duct Tape

E6000 & Duct Tape: How Americans Create Their Life Fixes, has been in the works for a while, if only in my mind’s eye.

As I do not have an intended recipient for this piece, I thought I’d offer it out to my readers. If you’d like a chance to receive this bubble, leave a comment. For two chances, leave a comment and share this post on facebook or your blog. For three chances, leave a comment, share and tweet. I will quit taking entries for the drawing as of Thursday night at 11:59 EST. The recipient will be picked randomly by the Little Guy I hang out with on Fridays. Sorry, domestic mailing only, due to customs issues. Make it fun! Play along!

The blister pack from my latest tube of E6000 was saved expressly for this bubble. The printed tapes? Duct Tape! That strange rectangular black thing? The back of a tiny, broken remote with a broken stretch band wrapped around it! The green whirly thingy came from the top of a squeeze pouch of fruit sauce. That red thingy? I don’t know what it is, or how I acquired it.

Every American knows that Duct Tape fixes everything, except STUPID. LoL! And anyone who has ever used the E6000 adhesive, made in the good old US of A knows that it’s the strongest adhesive, by far.

The American Traveler may not always have E6000 about their person, but Duct Tape? You betcha!

Americans have long used temporary fixes (like super glue and tape) because they are used to rigging things to work, or they’re lazy, or they just can’t stand to part with something that needed to be let go of long ago. Too, there’s that genuine conundrum of not knowing HOW to fix a thing and not being able to pay someone who can. Any way you look at it, Americans are the kings of sloppy fixes that seem to get the job done, even if temporarily.

Best for creating: Metal Ribbon

This piece was a nod to all Americans whose ingenuity or laziness forced them to use one of these products to fix an integral part of their daily life. Too bad they don’t work for STUPID, GOVERNMENT, POLITICS, RACIAL TENSION and the like! If you find a product that does, this girl would love to know about it!

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
