Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to "Jim Shillington" who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

I say everything I hear to others around.
I'm not an animal, nor part of the human race.
I will, immediately, repeat after you;
But only if my tail is in place.

What am I?

ANSWER: A microphone.

Enjoy!
