It just gets weirder….
Gee Whiz! New York Will Fight DWI with Talking Urinals
New York Takes Crusade Against Drunk Driving to the Men’s Room
May 17, 2006. ABC News — The battle against drunken driving is going straight into the toilet, as New York plans to install motion-activated soap pucks, known as Wizmarks, in the urinals of 100 men’s rooms at drinking establishments across Long Island’s Nassau County.
When guys leave a bar, the bathroom is usually the first place they visit before they go to their cars. And now, when men step up to the urinal at participating pubs, they’ll hear this public service announcement as they relieve themselves:
“Hey, you! Yeah, you! Having a few drinks? Then, listen up! Think you’ve had one too many? Maybe it’s time to call a cab or call a sober friend for a ride home. It’s sure safer and a hell of a lot cheaper than a DWI! Make the smart choice tonight. Don’t drink and drive!”
So what do they put in the women’s room?
