    Well at least Dale is already done with the ice breaker LOL. It doesn’t get much more embarrassing than that.

    Although the sound system looks like it is so old it would never have a wireless mic but ok…

    As live event sound mixers, we are trained to never let that happen. I might hear it in my headphones (God forbid!)…but the lapel mic audio is absolutely not going to make it to the audience monitors until the speaker returns!!! (Otherwise it’s curtains for me!)

    I recall that happening, and there was a Supreme Court hearing where you heard a flush.

    I believe that happened to Leslie Nielsen in one of the “Naked Gun” movies.

    I take it that the joke is “way too much coffee”. There’s no such thing.

    At least he didn’t express his disdain for the audience like the urban legend wrongly attributed to Uncle Don..:

    have taken more than one important call in the bathroom. Regretted it every time. Some smart az always has to flush or air dry his hands to ashes.

    It could have been a lot worse if he had too many prunes for breakfast.

    I can imagine MUCH worse things to come over the PA system. I don’t even consider this to be embarrassing.

    My son forgot he had his GoPro on his ski helmet when went into the men’s room at a ski slope. He could under stand why he was getting weird looks, because that little red light was on……..

    Old Playboy cartoon from one of the political conventions that had camera men wandering about with live cameras transmitting constantly. One is walking out of the men’s room with the camera hanging down from his neck. Coworkers are running up to him saying “John, your creepy-peepy is turned on!”
