Neologism

Syllotape - A notional adhesive tape, used for joining two or more apparently separate arguments or lines of logical thinking, or for patching a flawed argument.

This joke (like "Spellotape" in Harry Potter) is funnier if you know that "Sellotape" is the most popular brand of transparent adhesive tape in the United Kingdom.
