The real reason for the crowds in the “womens” room.

Ladies room sign
Girls, go back and get a friend before you go in. Why? The sign says so.

The irony here is that this sign labels the women’s restroom in a university building. Embarrassingly, the sign engraver wasn’t sure the plural “Women” was enough so he (yes, I am assuming it was a “he”) added an “s” — just to cover his butt.

There are so many ways to fix this sign:  delete the “s”, add an apostrophe (Women’s) or hey — why not just delete the word altogether. One would hope that, by the time you reach college, you can figure it out by the pictures.
