the microphone is phallic as the king's scepter is phallic: symbol of power and potency; symbol of who's in command.

if I had to rank them for phallic-ness, I'd have to go with the microphone.

the person who licensed theater companies and productions in Elizabethan England was the Master of the Revels.

while recognizing that Revels can't really be Mastered, I love that job title. I'd love that job. I'd be an excellent Revelmaster.

to master the Revels, one must serve the Revels. one must prepare the way for the Revels -- food, drink, music or noisemakers; optional: outlandish clothes, masks. one can perhaps master the most fortuitous circumstances for Revels, but whether Revels will actually arrive always remains an open question.

a bouquet of broccoli, a jug of cider, a box of wind and a scraper, we're good to go.
