Duct tape: The fixer of all things broken

DUNLAP, Ind. (AP) - An outraged father of a seventh-grader says an assistant principal duct-taped his son's pants to keep them from sagging then sent him back to class.
I wish I had seen this first. As a father, Eric has this one covered.

Hilarity ensues....

From the article it appears this school has at least minimal standards for its dress code, so I don't imagine I'd have to suggest the principal use scissors to hem those long white dresses today's young black males insist on modeling.

UPDATE: My old man has a book called "The Jumbo Duct Tape Book: The Gigantic, Exhaustive, Really Thick, Ultra Informative, Mother-of-em-all Book" by Jim and Tim, "The Duct Tape Guys." I thumbed through it and did not see any mention of using duct tape as a belt. Perhaps this principal should write in to the authors and suggest this newfound use for their latest edition?
