Who said "you only need two tools - WD40 and Duct tape."?

I remember reading this a while ago. If something is supposed to move, but it doesn't, you use the WD40. If it isn't supposed to move, and it does - you use the Duct tape. I want to include that in a piece of work I'm writing, but don't want to mess up the reference to who said it first.

Thanks in advance for any help/guidance/sarcasm/abuse/money/chocolate/beer/women...

John

I think it's been a joke longer than this, but Jim Berg and Tim Nyberg quote that in a book they wrote...something about WD40...I dunno, my dad has it, I'll have to go look it up...

I dunno, but my friend's dad is a rancher and orchardist and he says "If it can't be fixed with duct tape and baling wire, it ain't worth fixing."

I think that belittles duct tape, which should only be used for it's proper intended purpose; repairing upolstry.
