SANTA FE -- New Mexico has taken 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.
The top of the devices feature the state DWI slogan -- "You drink, you drive, you lose."
Some Albuquerque bars installed the devices this week.
And the state Transportation Department plans to distribute them to Santa Fe bars and restaurants as well as establishments in Farmington, Gallup and Las Cruces.
The state spent $21 for each talking urinal cake for the pilot program but will ask bars and restaurants to pay for future orders if the idea catches on.
The cakes have enough battery power to last about three months.
"How are they gonna tell the ladies?"
Blub, blub, gurble, blub, bubble, blub gurble........
I'm a little jumpy at my best. If the head starts talkin', my aim is going to get really nervous. I am approaching 50 now, so the only thing getting wet would be my shoes.
There was a church down in Texas that had a very big-busted organist.
Her breasts were so huge that they bounced and jiggled while she played the organ.
Unfortunately, she distracted the congregation considerably.
The very proper church ladies were appalled.
They said something had to be done about this or they would have to get another organist.
One of the ladies approached her very discreetly and told her to mash up some green persimmons, and rub them on her breasts and maybe they would shrink in size but warned her to not eat any of the green persimmons though because they are so sour, they will make your mouth pucker up and you won't be able to talk properly for a while.
She agreed to try it.
The following Sunday morning the minister got up on the pulpit and said.
"Dew to thircumsthanthis bewond my contwol we will not hath a thermon tewday"
I'll pass. I don't like Wal-Mart's non-stop talking self-checkout registers, the last thing I want is a commercial while I'm in the bathroom.
That's the first image that came to my mind. :-)
That is too funny! What talking device will the women's restroom get? Maybe just a camera and a microphone. /sarc
If they want them to work, they better be bilingual...
...This concludes this Thread Hijack. You may not return to your regularly scheduled thread...
This would set up some ingenious practical jokes involving the placement of vodka directly into the urinal while an unsuspecting party is using the facilities.
Realistically, I would not put such an idea past our beloved control-happy elected officials.
I can see the court filings now... "Once the urine had left the defendant's body, he no longer had a reasonable expectation of privacy..."
Cakes say, "Hey buddy" "Yes, I'm talking to you!" "Come a little closer" "Smell that?" "It's booze in your pee" "Better call a cab or I'll call the cops!"
LOL. Thanks for the laugh this moring. I'm emailing that to my buds.
What are the consequences when a drunken man discovers that his urinal is talking to him?
How about "a foreign-owned cab under secret contract with the State -- putting big kickbacks into RINO Rickie's pocket"?
Who are just dumb enough not to realize the unintended consequences....men would probably just start peeing on the floor, in the sink, in the wastebasket...anywhere to avoid detection.
Big Government from Clintonista Gov. Richardson.
Matt Drudge mentioned this story on his radio show Sunday night, and he had audio clips of the talking urinal cake.
These talking urinal cakes feature a female voice saying,
"Hey there, big guy" (sexual connotations) and "you've got your future in your hands" (another sexual comment)?
Richardson is using taxpayer dollars to purchase these stupid talking urinal cakes and he's distributing them to bars and restaurants. What if the bars and restaurants don't want these silly talking urinal cakes? Can they tell the governor to shove them? Last time I checked,
bars and restaurants were privately owned in this country.
I'll bet Richardson and his cronies eventually threaten to pull the liquor license of any establishment that refuses to install these ridiculous urinal cakes.
Also, since when are drunk drivers exclusively male?
What....there aren't any women who get arrested for drunk
driving? Can you imagine the outcry from the NOW gang and other "women's" groups if a talking male voice told women not to drink and drive as they sit there on the toilet taking a whiz? Sheesh! Another double standard.
More nanny state bull crap from the morons in government.
Looks like the restroom in the Clinton White House.
