A Fish By Any Other Name

This morning, I was looking through Carvin’s Online Catalog to pick out some audio gear for the new church, while Liam was leaning over my shoulder watching what I was doing.

“Holy Mackeral!” I exclaimed, upon seeing a particularly powerful system. Liam, figuring I must be talking about what was on screen, started pointing to some of the other speaker stacks. “More Mackeral!” he exclaimed gleefully. “More Mackeral!”

“No, Liam,” I explained. “Those aren’t mackeral. They’re speakers.” But he wouldn’t be dissuaded, and continues to insist that speakers are called “Mackeral.” Funny boy.
