Is today’s idea brilliant or a bomb?
The Idea: Pepper Mouth is a device that plugs into a USB port and literally emits foul smells whenever a swear word is used on the computer. It’s shaped like a bomb canister and theoretically teaches people how to curb their potty mouths.
The developers of the device claim that people don’t take the risks of foul language on the Internet seriously enough. Maybe every bank should get this in place of monitoring employees.
Whose Idea: Developers at Ultra-Modern-Life Training lab
Why it’s a bomb: This idea is a major bomb — pun intended. Although there have been a lot of situations where inappropriate language on the computer has come back to bite people, particularly at work, this stink solution is not likely to fix the problem. In fact, it’s likely to cause more problems once co-workers get a whiff of what’s going on. Literally.
