Funny hoax, I like the way the girl's frontal spine makes the duct tape shiny at the middle, and the way her clothes are not being pulled upwards while her weight slips her down, very cute little girls though.

I'm more impressed with the older girl, that can stand perpendicular to the wall, and not fall down.

I fail at it every time.

Looks like a couple of female engineers in the making..........................wait until they discover bubble gum and baling wire.

You're looking wrongly, they are doing what you (and I) do sometimes! They are both lying on the floor!!!! I am sure you can achieve that!!

Post #1 got it right!!!!

Oh sure

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.l

Why is it that you can't take any then?

I believe that I have a good idea already, it will be fun to see if I am right or not!!!!

I will not answer any more posts as AH#2, so you might get bored a bit ......

Anyone with children has pondered similar ideas and worse.

If they were related to me there would be tape over their mouths as well.

Ooooo, you just gave me a wonderful idea: 'Hello Kitty' duct tape! The little munchkins will be pleading to be affixed to the nearest wall. Make it smell like bubblegum and we got ourselves an inexpensive, self adhesive silencer to boot, non? See ya on Easy Street! :-)b

I'm not worried particularly. I suppose if someone was determined to kidnap my children, I should have every confidence they'd be unable to until the really fashionable, tastefully-scented tapes hit the market. Now, where's that 'Unsubscribe' button...

You're wrong, Picasso didn't leave much to do about that! Have you heard the tale of a crude winter when Picasso, in great need, all broken or bankrupted (or whatever you call that in english), had no choice but burning up his "masterpieces"? well, I think it wasn't cold enough that day...

Way too much cuteness - God bless Mr Lee's girls for participating in his artistic endeavours. Yes, before Mr. Lee probably will realize it, as to how fast his little girls grew up SO fast, and that they are in some college somewheres, and dating and trying to get some kind of life for themselves, I bet you that Mr. Lee, and his wife and little girls, had a wonderful and glorious and adventural time documementing his daughter's youth time and sharing it with us and the rest of the world.

All the best, Mr. Lee, for you and your family!

Thank's, Louis.

Like an adhesive bandage over a sore spot on your body, it's better to remove it in one swift pull, rather to agonise the procedure by pulling it off slowly (especially when body hair is involved).

Must be something like a hot wax bikini trimming - OUCH!
