    Nothing your naughty lawyer's mind is thinking of.

    Only electrical tape goo and bar tape goo.

    Unless you filmed at porn around it, that's TMI.

    Any suggestions for getting off the goo?

    Not sure it is the recommended process, but degreaser always works for me. And if that doesn't do it, I usually use the double entendre method, i.e. rub it off with my thumb.

    The thicker the goo the sweeter the ride...

    That much aside, try either "goo gone" or valve oil.

    WD-40 works too. Just remember like disolves like. i.e organics disolves organics and aqueous dissolves aqueous. OK it's not that simple but whatever. Deal with your own goo!
