"The name 'Mike'. Whenever I hear this name, it just makes me want to punch someone in the kisser. Just the sound of it is enough to make me lose my cool. 'MIKE, MIIIIKKKEE' Just typing the name has me losing control of my emotions." Apr. 30, 2015:
"I'm glad I didn't name my son Mike, not after a microphone!!! Instead Michael is the name I gave him as his middle name only because Michael is also very common. I know like 30 Mikes from work, in high school, and relatives and friends. Mike is just a good "nickname"" Dec. 31, 2008:

"Not to be confused with Mika as either a Finnish boy's name (in which case it is a Finnish diminutive of Michael) or a Japanese girl's name, which has an entirely different meaning altogether (Mika as a Japanese girl's name means 'new moon' - so I think anyway)." Aug. 20, 2009:
"P.S. Regarding little Mike Teavee. We very much regret that we shall simply have to wait and see if we can get him back his height but if we can't it serves him right! That was yet another song sung by the Oompa-Loompas following the fate of Mike Teavee in both the original Roald Dahl novel of 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory' and the 1971 film 'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory'." May. 17, 2008:
"Was quite popular in the baby-boomer era of the 1950s and '60s - until Roald Dahl introduced Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and those four brattish children, of which one, Mike Teavee, is the fourth golden-ticket finder and the fourth child to be kicked out of Mr Willy Wonka's chocolate factory for shrinking himself to midget size through television or Wonkavision before being over-streched beyond his normal size by the Oompa-Loompas. I think that Master Teavee ruined the name somewhat - it may take until 2020 or even beyond that for this no-nonsense name to come round again (if it does so then)." Apr. 27, 2008:
"Mike Teavee in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory (or the 1971 film Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder as Mr Wonka) is the cowboy-obsessed lad with the fourth golden ticket and the fourth brat - after Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregarde, and Veruca Salt - to be booted out of Mr Wonka's factory for in Master Teavee's case being sent by television and shrinking to midget-size. Then he is over-streched to higher than his normal size, pre-shrinking, by the Oompa-Loompas." Jan. 18, 2008:
