Summary:
K-REV Christian Radio Announcers Michael and Jacobóstars of the famous Mike and Jakeís Morning Showóhas a flat-out ďrevelationĒ moment.


(K-REV Announcers Mike and Jake are seated at an angled table, stage-left with 2 microphones facing them on the table. Both Mike and Jake are wearing red ďBeatsĒ headphones over their ears.)


MIKE
Youíre listening to the Mike & Jakeís Morning Show on the All-new Digital Family-friendly Christian Radio Network K-REV. The top story in todayís news is the economy. The government is reporting this morning that Retail Sales were flat last month again. Itís another sign that the economy isnít doing as well as they forecasted earlier this year.

JAKE
Retail Sales were flat as a pancake?

MIKE
Not pancakes, Jakeó

JAKE
Does that mean pancake syrup is still WAY to expensive?

MIKE
No, no noÖ the government is reporting that Retail Sales were flat last month again.

JAKE
My momma always told me I was flatfooted.

MIKE
Donít flatter yourself.

JAKE
Iím not! My favorite bread is flatbread with tons of real butter.

MIKE
Yeah, if you eat too much of that stuff brother, youíll flatline.

JAKE
You mean have a heart attack? Yeah, like Iíd let you take me to the Emergency Room but you have a flat tire on that old beater you drive.

MIKE
My car has a flat?

JAKE
Yessiree, Bob.

MIKE
Iím not Bob, Iím Mike.

JAKE
Iím Jake, nice to meet you.

MIKE
Very funny. Why didnít you tell me that my car has a flat?

JAKE
I didnít want to ruin your day.

MIKE
Well those good intentions just fell flat!

JAKE
As flat as the roof on this K-REV building?

MIKE
(laughs out loud) Or as flat as Iowa.

JAKE
Hey donít pick on Iowa. My grammaís from Iowa.

MIKE
I wasnít picking on Iowa, silly. I was just sayingó

JAKE
Yes I know itís flat like my feet.

MIKE
There you go, talking about your feet again. Yuck!

JAKE
Well, for a flat fee, I wonít mention them again.

MIKE
(laughs out loud again) Youíre on a roll today, brother!

JAKE
Iím on the honor roll? I didnít know K-REV had an honor roll! Thatís just flat-out funny.

MIKE
Youíre killiní me here, Jake.

JAKE
Nahóthat 2 liter bottle of Pepsi you opened 2 weeks ago will do that!

MIKE
I forgot about that Pepsi from my birthday party.

JAKE
Yes sir. Itís still in the K-REV employee fridge. Itís really flat now.

MIKE
How do you know? Did you have some?

JAKE
Yeah, I tried some yesterday. Yuck. It made my tummy hurt. Oh, that reminds me. I was going to tell you this earlier: I saw something when I was doing my exercises earlier in the studio.

MIKE
Whatís that? You saw a flat truck drive by?

JAKE
No, noóI was doing sit-ups, and while laying flat on my back I saw something in the shadows on the ceiling.

MIKE
Whatíd you see?

JAKE
It kinda looked like the face of Jesus.

MIKE
Really? (looks up, straining to see if there is anything on the ceiling) I donít see anything?

JAKE
(looks up, too) Itís not there now. The sun was just coming up. The light was shining through the window in the Producerís room straight into the studio.

MIKE
I can imagine that. But that wouldnít shine anything on the ceilingÖprobably just on that far wall.

JAKE
From what I could see, the sunbeams reflected off of the top of your flat screen monitor to the ceiling.

MIKE
That's so awesome, Jake. What did His face look like?

JAKE
He had a beard, and you know what?

MIKE
It was a high def 3D image?

JAKE
Youíre funny. No, He was smiling.

MIKE
Thatís the biggest K-REVelation Iíve ever heard.

JAKE
It really shocked me. It made me really think about praying more. Spending time with the ones you love is the only way to build relationships.

MIKE
Yes siróit works that way with God, too.

JAKE
The more quality time we spend with Himóthe less flat and empty our spiritual lives will be.

MIKE
The shadow knows.

JAKE
Very funny. No, MikeóGod knows what we need when we need it. We just need to ask Him.

MIKE
I just thought of something funny.

JAKE
That happens sometimes.

MIKE
You learned this while trying to get flat abs.

This is a very unique way of driving home the topic. You hit it flat on the head.

This is flat-out funny. I chuckled several times. I think you just about covered every "flat" idea out there.
CD Swanson 01/12/13
Funny and interesting way of presenting the topic. I enjoyed it immensely. This piece was anything but "flat." It was three dimensional...thanks.

God bless~

This is great. I smiled SD zip read the banter between the two. I think you managed to cover almost every definition of flat.

Just a tiny bit of red ink. Once you had to instead of too. Also when he said it hurt my tummy. I paused at that for a minute because it didn't seem to fit his personality. That is just my opinion though.

You have a delightful sense of humor. I enjoyed it quite a bit. You also had a great message in there at the end. Nice job.
