I came up with a riddle, and I thought it would make for a fun thread.

What do gorilla, duck, and frog have in common?

I thought that too. "Duck Tape" seems to be the brand name.
Fun fact: In Germany it is available with unicorns printed on it. So it´s not only versatile it can be stylish as well.

“Duct tape” is the common generic name. “Duck Tape” is a brand of duct tape.
