US prosthetic todger pair plead guilty to conspiracy

Drug test-busting Whizzinator seriously taking the p*ss

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

NSFW The two men responsible for the Whizzinator - a prosthetic todger designed to beat those pesky drugs tests - have each pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to defraud in a federal court in Pittsburgh.

The Whizzinator

Robert Catalano and George Wills punted their fake schlong through California-based internet outfit Puck Technology. The website explained: "The Whizzinator is the ultimate solution for a drug testing device. It is very comfortable to wear for long periods of time while the body temperature is maintained with organic heat pads.

"The prosthetic penis is very realistic and concealing is simple, while our quality production and materials assures you that the The Whizzinator will let it flow again and again, anytime, anywhere you need it!"

Puck Technology also offered the "Number 1 Urinating Device" and, of course, the splendidly-named "Yellow River" - described as "The #1 Solution To Your Synthetic Urine Needs".

It's apparent that prosecuting US Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan and her office didn't have to work to hard to make their case that the aim of both devices and associated synthipiss "was to help people pass drug tests".

Puck Technology's glowing customer testimonials featured this enthusiastic contribution from one Bryan: "I am 33 and used The Whizzinator to pass a screening test given by my job that I have been working at for 3 years and because of restructure, I had to test. Thanks to Puck Technology, I passed and will continue to pass. Thanks a bunch! I WILL refer you to friends!"

Catalano and Wills will be sentenced in February. They face a maximum penalty of eight years in prison, a fine of $500,000, or both. ®
