Listen to the talking urinal cake: Don’t drive drunk


If you don’t respond to the voice of conscience, perhaps a talking urinal cake will do the trick.

The state of Michigan certainly hopes so, seeing as they distributed 400 of these high tech talkers to around 200 establishments before the holiday to encourage patrons to find a safe ride home.

According to Wired:

The cakes are the brainchild of Wizmark industries. The company is the leader in interactive urinal cake technology. The devices are triggered by motion, not liquid. The urinal accessory distributed in Michigan delivers the follow message: “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.”

The state may be down but they’re definitely not out of great ideas. Chances are a talking urinal is also going to curb future binging as well.

Be safe and live to live it up on Labor Day.
