That's great.

N.M. orders 500 talking urinal cakes

Now you'll have drunks trying to pick a fight with a urinal cake.

Let's examine this, shall we?

1) Electronically powered device, sitting in a liquid medium for up to three months, showered by another conductive liquid connected directly to the human anatomy. Not recommended practice, if you know what I mean.
2) How soon before drunken frat boys are taking the items back to their dorm rooms as postmodern decorations?
3) The last sacred place has been breached by advertisers. That's gotta be some selling point. "Want to move product? Drop it in the toilet - watch your sales go through the roof!"
4) I am constitutionally against women's voices in public men's rooms. Someone's being too clever by half with this one.

Overall, I think the citizens of the Great State of New Mexico deserve more for their $10,500 than talking urinal hockey pucks.

1) Is it true the that they've come up with a talking third rail?

2) I would say probably about three seconds. Although they'll make sure the drunkest one is the guy who actually fishes it out of the urinal.

3) America is truly a great country.

4) As long as it doesn't sound like someone's mom, it's not that bad.
