Default Beeping swimsuits....now I've heard it all!

Saw a scroller at the bottom of the screen on Fox news yesterday that said a company in Canada would begin selling "beeping" swimsuits next month! They have a UV sensor built in and will beep when you've had too much sun......you've gotta be kidding! Can you imagine a bunch of beeping swimsuits around the Lido deck???

i think when it beeps... it should also shock the poo out of them... because if they are too dense to realize they've been sitting outside too long... then im sure they will think the beeping is the icecream man's new tunes...

No WAY would I wear one of those. I don't want any clothing announcing backing up wide load.
