YOUR A SCUMBUCKET FOR TAReiNG THIS OFF!

I found this above the urinal at a local bar. It says:

Everyone knows that bathroom graffiti always contains grammar and spelling mistakes.

One of the most common is the use of "your" instead of "you're". (usually in the form of: your a fucking idiot- or some such retort)

Therefore if the incorrect use of "your" was the only mistake in this message then I certainly wouldn't have bothered to include it here.

That's an original one- and not just for bathroom walls.

A google search finds only '2,700 results for tareing' - making me think the author of this graffiti is pretty original.

And, except for the crappy internet poets (e.g. tareing up the sheets ), this turns out to be true:
