Michigan Fights Drunk Driving with Talking Urinal Cakes [AUDIO]
News has been trickling in this weekend about Michigan’s latest weapon in the fight against drunk driving – talking urinal cakes. My first thought, “I hope these things don’t say anything too judgmental, or insulting.”
Aim past the break for audio, a suggestion for a better name, and a few bad puns.
The product is made by Wizmark (Yes, Wiz-mark) and it’s called the Interactive Urinal Communicator. Seriously? Let me take a shot at a better name. How about, Interactive Communicative Urinal Police, or ICUP for short. C’mon, we’ve all been making that crack since first grade, why not trademark it?
Four-hundred of the little tinkle talkers will be distributed to two-hundred gin joints in Wayne, Bay, Ottawa and Delta counties. The project is headed by the Office of Highway Safety Planning, a division of the Michigan State Police. The agency’s ‘aim’ is to cut down on drunk driving in Michigan.
