Ok, new feature. I'm going to look through the most inane news of the week and find what I think to be among the silliest stories of the past seven days. It also has to have the benefit of being funny.
And...We've got a winner!
SANTA FE — New Mexico is taking its fight against drunken driving to men's restrooms around the state.Ahh, if only they had had these when George W. was on the road.
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.
'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.'
I am sure the janitorial staff in these bathrooms is pretty psyched too. How many truckers named Billy Bob Bill are going to get a bit too excited by that sexy bowl-residing vixen on that long lonely trip and, how shall we say it, spill their cargo before reaching its intended destination (I know BC would)?
Hell, N.M. Senator Pete Domenici might propose.
