Isn't that a whole different type of tape though? Electrical tape is all plastic, gaffa tape has cotton in it.

Gaffer's tape has a matte finish, since reflection of light is especially undesirable on tv/movie sets. It's also meant to be easily removable without damaging the surface or leaving residue.

it says "this singer"

Dec 6, 2018
I thought the same. I had put the emphasis in the clue on "the clothes" and not "this singer."

Me too. Something like "This singer who wore black" would do it.

I agree, with the clue regarding Johnny Cash. It was hard to understand what it was referring to.

The clue says "this singer." That means you're supposed to name the singer. The Man in Black!

Red Back Spider!
+1
level 66
Dec 6, 2018
Very similar, the red marking on this spider has the 'Martini Glass' look that is the USA Black Widow, the Australia Red Back Spider has a similar but distinctive mark usually a longer stripe.

Also, the red back's mark is on its back, which is not the visible part of the spider in this picture anyway...

I agree with the comments on Johnny Cash, didn't really understand what you were looking for. Never seen a magic 8 ball before only on "Friends", I thought it was to help you make a decision.

Electrical tape is not usually black, is it? It comes in all colours. Gaffer tape is almost always black, wouldn't that be a better clue?
+1
level 34
Dec 6, 2018
Yes, electrical tape is lots of colours. I'd even argue that its mostly other colours, not black. I think the Quizmaster should find another black thing less ambiguous.
+1

The problem with gaffer tape is that I don't think it's very well-known in the US. I could be wrong, but I only learned what it meant because I started working at a theatre.

Black doesn't come in "shades"! It only has one "shade", the hexadecimal colour 000000. Otherwise it's just dark gray, dark red, dark blue, dark whatever, you get the drift. The only other colour this is true for, by the way, is white.
