Actor Tom Sizemore thought he could pull a fast one. Using a device called "The Whizzinator" (pictured, in a safe-for-work version) he showed up for -- and failed -- a February 1 drug test. The device features a repository for drug-free pee, heat packs, and underwear attached to a prosthetic male pee-delivery device. Apparently, Sizemore neglected to warm the clean pee, and the judge figured out his game. Sizemore, who is on probation, was required to pass a urinalysis test before leaving the country to begin shooting a film in Cambodia. While the judge called Sizemore's drug use "out of control", we find the dependence upon prosthetic devices and borrowed pee to be equally troubling.
