Duct vs. Duck[edit]

Please see the Wikipedia and Wiktionary articles and talk pages for duct tape before reverting this again to a redirect. "Duck tape" is a folk etymology, quack etymology, and name brand of Duct tape. However, there is a completely different tape product which is not an adhesive and has no relation to duct tape but is made of cotton duck and used in Venetian blinds - it is called duck tape. Even if you believe the story about duct tape being duck tape, there is still no reason for us to completely obscure the original product "duck tape" by making this a redirect. --The Yar 20:41, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
