Lecterns are not foolproof

John C. Maxwell has written a bunch of books including the 2010 Everyone Communicates, Few Connect: What the Most Effective People Do Differently. Watch this 4-minute YouTube video in which he struggles with ~$50 music stands provided as lecterns. Ad copy for similar stands claims:

“Easy, automatic no-knob friction-tilt neck delivers constant tension at any tilt position.”

But, it doesn’t say there will be enough tension to handle a one-pound Bible, and there isn’t. John finally gives up and tries something else (since even healing didn't work). He never gets around to finishing the joke he started to tell. Of course, the guy who complains about getting the bologna sandwiches packs his own lunches.
