Duct tape's limits include your crotch.

They say that you can fix just about anything with duct tape, well... Have had this little book of home remedies around for a while and finally had a moment to skim through it. There was a blurb about warts and duct tape, along with a theory about why it works so well for most people. They
then felt the need to clearly state that this treatment was NOT for genital warts. Made me laugh out loud. Not sure what was funnier, the fact that they were compelled to make that statement or the thought of someone actually trying it.
