When taking a leak, customers are greeted with a message which begins: 'Hey, listen up - that's right, I'm talking to you.


'Have you had a few drinks, maybe a few too many?' it says, before warning motorists, 'Do yourself and everyone else a favour and call a cab.'

As neat as this idea sounds, I don't think it will do much to curb drunk driving.

I was once talked at by a disembodied Eric Idle whilst using the facilities at a cinema in Preston (he was advertising Splitting Heirs, so it was a good few years ago); it was somewhat disconcerting.

I'll never take advice from a bar urinal ever again after that one told me, "Yep.  She looks a dead-ringer for Charlize Theron.  Go for it."

pfft

Never had one speak to me but I did read this sign over one once:  Please don't put cigarette butts or gum in urinal.(it makes the cigarettes too hard to light and the gum too salty)   :w00t:

"Dude, she's totally 18."

Damn urinal got me in some serious trouble.

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

That would freak we right out. Be taking a pee and the uninal start talking might leave a yellow stream on the floor. I would be wondering if the flashback are coming back. Or Candid Camera is back on TV again. :w00t:

I can think of some possibilities that aren't suitable for print ;)
But how about "that's so strong it's stripping my enamel, might want to try the next one on the rocks?"

Makes you wonder if these 'facilities' will attract a new type of customer partial to having conversations with the 'things' that they pee on? :unsure2:
