The abbreviation for microphone is "MIC", as in MICrophone. It's not
"MIKE", as in "Those of us named Mike are pretty unnerved when we see
ads saying "Mike For Sale".

so,then, Mike, is your point

(1) You can't be bought?
(2) You are priceless?
(3) You aren't cheap?
(4) You are free?
(5) You might be for rent or loan?
(6) Not being FOR sale, you are AGAINST sale?
(7) You worry your wife put you on the market without telling you?

Just a thought, or maybe just half a thought.

Then there's the XYL:

1) She prefers a D-104 "Lollypop" MIKE
2) But wants VOX cuz she's tired of squeezing her MIKE
3) Too much MIKE gain and she complains about MIKE being distorted

You can see this is going downhill real fast - see what you started MIC!!
