A Microphonic Metaphor?

Is it just me? For the last year, every time I see this mic setup I can’t help laughing. The enormous hot air filter and the unusual ‘cantilever’ (upside down) mount. The donut shock absorber, the quirky gooseneck stand, and at the heart of it all………… is that a ‘Made in Mexico’ Shure SM57?

The Shure VIP Mount used by previous US presidents was an image copied by politicians all over the world. It will be interesting to see if this  somewhat ‘eccentric’ new look ever catches on. Somehow, I doubt it!
