DWI Message Played During Men's Last Pit Stop Before Driving

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. Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press (external - login to view).

Sure, anti DWI messages now. But how long before the things are set to spew out (pun intended) commercials for booze and "escort services"?

First they make talking urinal cakes. What's their next brilliant invention? Talking tampons for the ladies perhaps?
I would imagine the first guy to pee on on of those drunk would probably scream like a little girl and end up spraying piss all over the bathroom. Seriously, why is money being wasted on this?

Talking tampons. Would they have a PSA, the danger of menstruation?.
Or like a warning for those really drunk guys? Look out, stinky here.

they're just using the wrong message.
taped female laughter and making fun of their ***** size would work much better

Some spaces should be sacred, or at least relatively quiet. I've been in a can that had leetle televisions over each of the urinals, showing tape loops of ads. I'd rather not make eye-contact with anyone while I'm trying to whizz, even if they are on the telly and trying to sell me toothpaste.
