N.M. orders 500 talking urinal cakes
By Tim Korte, Associated Press Writer | February 17, 2007

RIO RANCHO, N.M. --New Mexico is hoping to keep drunks off the road by lecturing them at the last place they usually stop before getting behind the wheel: the urinal.

The state recently paid $21 each for about 500 talking urinal-deodorizer cakes and has put them in men's rooms in bars and restaurants across the state.

When a man steps up, the motion-sensitive plastic device says, in a woman's voice that is flirty, then stern: "Hey, big guy. Having a few drinks? Think you had one too many? Then it's time to call a cab or call a sober friend for a ride home."

The recorded message ends: "Remember, your future is in your hand."

I remember radio commercials for Rio Rancho when I was like four years old living on Long Island. They had a jingle that went, "Gotta get awaaaaaay - to Rio Rancho!"

Dairy Dave Says 'Cheese'
Updated: 10:23, Thursday February 15, 2007

Imagine having to eat the same food for every meal - day in and day out.
That is the reality for Dave Nunley whose eating phobia means he can only scoff cheese.

Giving Wallace and Gromit a run for their money the 29-year-old nibbles his way though nearly 110 kilos of Cheddar every year, Wensleydale simply will not do.

And if he wasn't fussy enough already, Dave insists that the cheese has to be grated.

Hypnotherapy and acupuncture have failed to solve his problem.

But Dave has finally started to dabble with the occasional salt and vinegar crisp.

Somewhat surprisingly the dad of two remains relatively healthy despite consuming three times as much fat as is recommended.

Doctors, however, fear that almost 30 years of fromage could start to take their toll.

Despite popping vitamin pills Dave's nervous system could one day collapse under the weight of cheese.
