Lawsie’s Golden Microphone Missing

Thanks to 2CC’s Mike Frame for the heads up on this peculiar story…from news.com.au [1]

WEARING his gold-framed glasses and gold headphones and sipping from his gold-rimmed cup yesterday, veteran broadcaster John Laws was down one vital glistening item – his golden mike.

Police are treating as suspicious the disapearance from his production office of the $10,000 nine carat gold microphone, presented to Lawsie in 2003 as a gift from 2UE management for his 50th year on the airwaves.

It is a one-off German Sennheiser, serial number JL 0001.

But Laws has been using another golden microphone, given to him for his 40th anniversary, since the brazen bandit looted the king of his prized instrument. “I’m very upset about it. It’s been part of my life,” Laws said yesterday.

Laws pleaded with the thief to return the microphone anonymously, saying he would not press charges if they did.

How many golden microphones does this man have?

And more importantly, why do I have none?

Hope John gets it back, keep an eye on E-Bay John, everything turns up on there sooner or later.

A publicity stunt.

Pen, I’m not sure if he has one or two…I thought it was one, but various sources say two.

Tony, I hope so too.

Albona, I considered that, but if it is a publicity stunt, why are the police involved?

Just checked again, he does have two, he uses one for the daily show, it’s the other one which is missing.

If it is a publicity stunt, shame on you John.
If not, I’ll keep checking E-Bay.
Oh look, Michael Jackson’s stuffed pet monkey Bubbles is going for $50.
Gee E-bay has some freaky stuff.
What’s the weirdest stuff you’ve seen on E-Bay?

Very good question, I spotted “100 elastic bands in a bag” on ebay once.

I’ll have to keep that question filed away somewhere so that I can ask it one day.

If it’s not a publicity stunt,why go public with it if it’s an inside job?
Stan has had the headlines for the past week even in death,this would be killing the likes of Laws and Carlton.

Gee with 100 elastic, you could start up your own band.
The EBay Rubberband Orchestra, you could play classics like
Bands Get In My Eyes.
Bands On The Run.
You Took The Bands Right Outta My Hands.
Rubber Bands Is Not A Dirty Word
You Just Love To Rub My Bands In Bed.
The Theme From The Sting (that’s gotta hurt)
The Band Aide Classic-Don’t Use Rubber Bands At Christmas Time.
