how do we integrate tequila?

I'm reading this month's Funny Times, and the Planet Proctor column, apparently volume 20, 2002 quotes Mitch Ratcliffe as saying:

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

So various organizations are proposing fingerprint sensing trigger locks for handguns. Oxford Microdevices even advertises that their A336 Video Digital Signal Processor Chip is perfect for the task. We're on a roll, now how do we integrate tequila into this device?

Funny.. Tequila was an ingredient in this weekends frolic. How apropos. Perhaps a fingerprint lock on bar cabinet doors.. (does anyone actually have a bar, or does it just stay in your kitchen cupboards like everyone else I know). so.. It would have to be on the bottle:

Clerk st the liquor store:

Sir, place your index finger here. It's ok sir, it will not hurt, but it will key that bottle's spigot to your fingerprint and encodes your ident in nanotags in the liquor so that anyone that gets drunk and hurts themselves or anyone else can ident you (and not the liquor manufacturer or the store) as the responsible party.

Bartenders would hate it.
