Taylor Swift's microphone - one of the most famous mics in the history of mics.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The microphone that Kanye West, aka Kanye Pest, took away from sweet, little Taylor Swift at the MTV Music Video Award Show has been confiscated and placed in the museum of Washington D.C.'s Smithsonian Institute.

Vincent Fitzhoffgen assistant director of museum gathering items said that at first the producers of the award show did not want to part with the infamous microphone.

But he said that once he showed them a letter from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi threatening them with ipso facto intrusive confiscation, the producers were only too glad to comply and turn the microphone over.

Fitzhoffgen placed the microphone in a freezer bag for safe transporting back to D.C. He said that the microphone never left his side.

When he was asked to comment on the mic and its condition, he replied that the mic was in excellent condition although it did smell a little bit like chicken. But he was quick to point out that probably half of all microphones smell like some kind of food item.

He noted that the Smithsonian Museum has the most extensive collection of microphones from all over the world. At last count the microphone number stood at 1,903 mics.

Fitzhoffgen disclosed that most microphones from Italy smell like pizza, mics from France smell like French fries, Brazilian mics smell like nuts, mics from Mexico smell like maracas, and microphones from Alaska smell like polar bears.

Vincent Fitzhoffgen said that the popular mic should be on display in its microphone display case by October 20. He added that he welcomes everyone to go by and see the famous microphone.

He then added that the only person who will not be allowed access to the room where the microphone will be on display will be Kanye West, for the obvious reason.

In other news. Details are still somewhat sketchy but word coming out of Quebec is that Canada has launched a full-scale invasion on Tunisia. London's BBC is reporting that the invasion is a direct result of the Canadian sand shortage.
