Never trust a battery powered microphone
by Prentis Goodwin
(Senatobia, MS USA)
Our preacher was into his sermon about thirty minutes or so when the battery started going dead on his microphone and we could only hear every other word he was saying. He asked if someone back in the sound booth could bring him another mike so they did. But upon returning to the closed in sound room I guess the young men forgot to turn off the mike and wouldn't you know it, that silly battery had a little life left in it. All we could hear for what seemed like forever was those two young boys engaged in a contest of who ate the most beans the night before.
