Wiz-evangelism?

In a recent story by ABC news, we read that bars in New York will soon be fighting DWI with talking "motion activated soap-pucks" in all the urinals (Thanks for the link John). Read below...
When guys leave a bar, the bathroom is usually the first place they visit before they go to their cars. And now, when men step up to the urinal at participating pubs, they'll hear this public service announcement as they relieve themselves:

"Hey, you! Yeah, you! Having a few drinks? Then, listen up! Think you've had one too many? Maybe it's time to call a cab or call a sober friend for a ride home. It's sure safer and a hell of a lot cheaper than a DWI! Make the smart choice tonight. Don't drink and drive!"
So, here's my idea. Why not put these in church bathrooms across the nation. Perhaps they could quote scripture, or feature a sound bite from last weeks message. Better yet, you could use them like evangelism tracts and put them in public restrooms with a gospel challenge being delivered during each use. What do you think?

...and then, we could put in motion-activated recordings on the toilet paper dispensers, reminding everyone to wipe well and that Jesus loves you. I see a whole talking bathroom line here...I'd call it "The Prophetic Potty"

I'm just thinking it would cost a lot more in the way of janitorial staff...

If a urinal started talking to me, who knows what the result might be.

Lassen... sorry for the juvenile post, I guess I've been watching too many Disney movie with the kids (potty humor is everything to Disney).

Well... in keeping with the sarcastic nature of this post. One of the beauties of evangelism soap-pucks, is they are a lot less likely to be thrown away. I mean, if you give someone a paper tract, its in the trash can in no time. No body's ever going to touch, let alone throw away, a urinal puck.

Scott, you didn't even give ME credit for sending you the article about talking urinal soaps in the first place! And you had the PERFECT chance to pawn it off on me!

Actually, if you look closely, there is a thanks to John mention at the beginning of the post. Credit goes where credit is due.

I think a more catchy title to your post would have been
