|this one is second hand from a friend who used to work at an all-around pro audio and music store that did some live sound too. the event was some celebrity golf thing or another, featuring chi chi rodriguez as the big name draw.
so my friend had gone over the wireless lavalier routine with everyone before the event and everyone was wired and told to just turn themselves on as they came into their speaking parts of the thing.
so up comes chi chi, completely forgetting to turn on his transmitter and babbling unheard remarks to a confused crowd of hundreds. my friend tries in vain to get his attention, and chi chi keeps on talkin' to nobody...
so my friend approaches him from the side and tries to discreetly flip the thing on... and, right as he does, rodriguez(now amplified as all hell)freaks out, yelling "no man touches chi chi!"...the crowd went nuts laughing and rodriguez was pissed. fun times!
we've all cracked each other up for years with that one, and people give you a great look in a bar or the grocery store when one grown man yells at another "no man touches chi chi!" and then they both laugh hysterically...
