CDC: Sealing the Deal

Red Green touts duct tape as "The Handyman's Secret Weapon." Little does he know that the brilliant scientists of the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta have their own take on the ubiquitous adhesive:
The brainiacs at the Center's Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory, which cost over $200 million dollars (or in gummint-speak, "chump change"), have been using roll after roll of the silver stuff trying to prevent the escape of the potentially fatal "airborne Q fever."
In their defense, the scientists claim that the duct tape is merely an "enhancement;" insurance (if you will) added to bolster the containment systems already in place. Of course, we've all heard that before.
I sure hope Bob's got a roll of his own.
