Sultry-Voiced Talking Urinal Cakes Remind Men Not To Drink And Drive

Courtesy of New Mexico’s Transportation Department, some bars in the state have received electronic urinal cakes, which not only deodorize, but also provide advice.

“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.”

“Big guy” ? Why, thanks for noticing, sultry-voiced urinal cake!

(You can hear the voice by clicking through to the article, scrolling down a bit, and watching the video. No actual urinal use is depicted.)

What would really be more helpful is a urinal cake that somehow measures your blood alcohol content, to see if you’re genuinely sauced. Sexy voice optional. MARK ASHLEY
