    You never know when a purple crayon will come in handy—1001 uses, I guess.

    The “them” should also be changed to “it,” unless the tampons are what’s getting stopped up…

    should ‘stops’ also be changed to ‘blocks’?
    as in it blocks them up

    “Tampons” is plural, so should it be “they”?

    …it could be the action of “putting tampons in the toilet” that’s being referred to as “it”…

    It’s actually perfectly valid to include the “because”; ie. “Please do not put tampons in the toilet because they stop them up.”

    However, there is also a mistake in referring to multiple tampons, but only using “it” in “it stops them up”.

    What’s the fail here?
    Is there two?
    “Please because”?
    Or “it stops them up”?

    Or maybe three.
    All the tampons are doing is clogging them.
    Which is what they’re made for.
    Keeping something from flowing.

    I especially like the random punctuation of Do Not. Do they mean to emphasize it more, where all caps would have worked better? I guess not much thought went into this at all. Perhaps a lot of thought was put into it, and this was the best that the author could do.

    I saw one that beats this, over 20 years ago before we had cameras on our phones (or hell, cell phones for that matter.) It was at a Beall’s in Oklahoma & I’ll never forget what it said:
    “LADDIES PLEASE DONT PUT NO SANITY NAPPKINS OR TAIMPONS IN TOLIET”
    At least he said please…

    I just ate at the restruant this was at. The oaken Bucket in South Bend. The worst part that this sign was in a unisex bathroom.
