    Stephen,

    Wrapping pink tape around posts as directions to your home might create the impression that you were attempting to attract a certain type of visitor…..
    Lucy, I can think of other fun uses for pink tape and I’m surprised they haven’t crossed the minds of any of the male posters (perhaps they were just too bashful to say)

    • Northern Lights – see number 13, which I assumed was some kind of bizarre police bondage fetishism… or maybe you have something else in mind…?

  6. Tying up tomatoes FTW

  7. you can make a tidy profit selling it off to kabbalah followers…

  8. Discombobulated

    We’ve done number 2 and all of it’s botanical permutations

  9. Twist has the most important use – suitcase recognition.

    Plus, for those with small daughters, hair accoutrements for dolls.

  10. The cats love it.

  11. I don’t care about the tape – I want to know how David Jockleson has got tomatoes to ripen by the end of June in this year without a summer. Is the tape a charm against storm clouds?

  12. Discombobulated

    Probably a conservatory in a south-facing garden Rodney. That or it’s an old photo taken in August!

  13. So useful that pink tape appears to reproduce inside a work bag… Dignity,ahem, defended on numerous occasions when needing to tie back unruly hair before going into court and hair clip remained somewhere err practical like still on my desk in chambers.
