We know who you are

POLICE in Nassau Country are installing plastic censors in pub urinals that lecture punters about the perils of drink driving.

According to WCBS 880, the device is a Wizmark Urinal Communicator which has a 3.5-inch plastic screen that displays digital files. The device recognises that it is being 'Nintendoed on' and plays an MP3 which suggest you get a cab if you have been drinking.

The Wizmark project is being be distributed free to bars located in Nassau County. We notice that something similar has not been put in the ladies, and wonder what will happen when when very drunk people find themselves engaged in an unexpected conversation with Armitage Shanks.
