    The 'undisputed' King of Late Night Chat looks chargrined and perplexed the opportunity to use the Royal phrase "My Kingdom for a Mike" is taken away from him by a CNN Walker who Walked the Walk while he Talked the Talk!

    Larry: Microphone. Microphone! This was a Microphone? No wonder the interns gave me a dirty look every morning when I asked them to fill it with coffee.

    With this microphone, you can sit in your house and continue to do Larry King Live just without the celebrity guests and the national audience.

  11. Robert - Palm Desert

    Oh, how cute...a wire from Thomas Edison: "Larry, I was so thrill to be your first guest. Happy retirement."

    The majority voted Larry, you can keep the microphone, but only for 2 yrs...The GOP wants it back because Boehner cried his eyes out thinking it was for the new speaker of the house..your turn is up in 2012, its was bipartisan vote...
