Police in St Louis charged 34-year-old Sydney Levin with using an artificial penis, the Whizzinator, to complete a urine test. The Whizzinator's been helping idiots get busted—including its creators—since 2005.
The makers of the Whizzinator, a fake penis that dispenses fake, drug free piss so that you can beat workplace urinalysis tests, have been convicted of "conspiracy." They'll be sentenced on Friday. The BBC calls their operation a "fake penis scam," but I think the real scam is employers who think your piss is their business. I don't take drugs or drink, but I think that the right to choose what state of mind you want to be in when you're off the clock is fundamental, and no one's business but your own.
The device was sold with a heating element and fake urine to help people test negative for illegal substances.Men guilty over fake penis scam (Thanks, Fee!)
They could face up to eight years in prison and a $500,000 (£334,000) fine.
