When is a man most susceptible to good advice? Why, it’s the very moment when he’s draining his nigh-bursting bladder and resting his booze-bloated noggin against a cool restroom wall, vaguely pondering the wisdom of the last three shots of jaeger. That’s my interpretation of this, anyway.
In a unique bid to cut down on drunk driving, Michigan State Police is hooking up with a company that makes “interactive urinal communicators” (read: talking urinal cakes) to try and talk some sense into men in four counties while they’re in a restaurant restroom… In this case, they tell potentially tipsy patrons: “Listen up. That’s right, I’m talking to you. Had a few drinks? Maybe a few too many? Then do yourself and everyone else a favor: Call a sober friend or a cab. Oh, and don’t forget to wash your hands.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t generally take advice from things that don’t know enough to get out of my urine-stream. Particularly when I’m half in the bag. “Hey! If you’re so smart, little piddle-cake, why are you still getting pissed on? Tell me that, huh?! YER NOT BETTER’N ME!”
