New Mexico is taking its fight against drunken driving to men's restrooms around the state. The state has ordered 500 talking urinal cakes that will deliver a recorded anti-DWI message to bar and restaurant patrons who make one last pit stop before getting behind the wheel.

"Hey there, big guy. Having a few drinks?" a female voice says a few seconds after an approaching male sets off a motion sensor in the device. "It's time to call a cab or ask a sober friend for a ride home."

Anybody PO'd about this? OK, it is just a pun.

To be PC, do we flush once for Engiish?

Female voice?

Does that mean in a gay bar it will be a male voice?

Such as the voice of the computer HAL in the movie 2001?

Great, now I have to change the punchline,

"Please don't eat the big, white, talking mints" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

How many guys are going to be sure they've had too much to drink because the urinal cake is talking to them?

These "smart" urinal cakes should be able to sense their
"ambient" alcohol level, and only perform this public service if over the legal limit. Alternatively, they could emit a "thank-you" for staying legal if under. If no alcohol detected, profusely thank the patron for being a designated driver.

If they aren't bilingual, the folks who need to hear the message aren't going to understand it.

No. Dave was one of the astronauts. HAL called out his name as they were shutting his system down.

Hmmm, looks like high tech urinal cake?

As Dandy Don Meridith did on Monday Night Football in the 70's when he sang when it was curtains for a team?

With his slow mournful deep Texas twang:

'Turrrn out the lights, the party's ovvvver'
