Glad to provide you with a little levity. Care to say why though?

I realize your post was somewhat satirical made out of frustration due to the service issues, since its my understanding from what I have seen you are using pentax professionally or a least semi.

You made the post and some people start saying no that you can't when clearly you are. I'm sure pentax will get the service stuff figured out.

As a side note its my personal belief that anything that is mission critical should have a spare. Not necessarily an exact duplicate but something that can get you by. For me if I'm up in the mountains or somewhere else remote, no matter how good customer service is I'm not expecting a helicopter delivery the next day.

..... and certainly with the price of Pentax bodies in comparison with anything remotely close in pro FF specs, you'll be paying less than half.......... so a spare half decent body shouldn't cost you much if your doing that many weddings in a year........ i'd have several. (not withstanding your concerns in getting the thing serviced)
