May be NSFW, but mostly innocent fun, a crafty way to spend part of your weekend.

Well if I'm ever stuck on a deserted island with 3 Tampax cardboard vending tubes,
5 Tampax tampon cardboard applicators (unused), thin cardboard, fine-point marker, a utility knife, a hot glue gun, 16 tampon strings, a pitch pipe and a piano or electronic tuner , I'll now be able to make a musical instrument to while away those long, boring hours! Of course with 50 times the amount of tampons, I could make a pretty kick ass boat too...

It was very amusing to watch her play Ode to Joy on that contraption. It'll be my next rainy day project.

Fun stuff. This is like something Amy Sedaris might do on a rainy Sunday.

I'm thinking a single applicator would make a decent short-range (read: office) blowgun, with mini marshmallows, spitballs, or other ammo according to target.

Awesome.

I just sent the flute to my sister in law the middle school music teacher, with the comment "Not sure if this will fit into your curriculum."

"You can use any fabric dye of your choice, or a natural dye, such as coffee, turmeric, beet juice, or even menstrual blood" was a good touch.

Tampons are also very effective as uniform mega-spitballs, you can dunk them in liquid and throw them at each other, or you can make a Rocket Propelled Tampon apparatus!

Five years ago I made one using model rocket engines inside a copper pipe, shimmed inside a larger PVC pipe that had the swelled tampon down the muzzle. With streamers attached to the engine instead of tail-fins, it had a range of 100 yards, and was accurate within a few yards at that distance. The engine and tampon would separate from one another after the apogee, and the tampon would land maybe ten yards ahead of the spent engine.
