Move over auto industry, corruption, and unemployment- Michigan has found yet another field of work to be a leader in.
Michigan is hoping to keep drunks off the road with the help from a special bathroom message.
The state says talking urinal-deodorizer cakes have been distributed to Michigan Licensed Beverage Association members in Wayne, Bay, Ottawa and Delta counties. A recorded message will play reminding men who step up to the urinals to call a cab or a friend, if needed, to get home safely.
Personally, I think this idea is brilliant. The logic behind it IMPECCABLE. I mean, if a never-ending amount of television ads promising a lengthy jail term and thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees, ON TOP of hearing heartbreaking stories like an inebriated Donte Stallworth committing vehicular homicide, and not to mention basic common sense, haven’t taught you that you should never get behind the wheel of an automobile drunk, then what WILL surely beat that message into the head of some dude at the bar is a urinal deodorizer.
