Live from under a rock in your backyard, it’s The Jerry Duncan Show.

JERRY

Good morning listeners nationwide. Is it a good morning? We’ll soon find out. Today on the show, my guests are Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and his Uncle Max Sanders.

BERNIE SANDERS

Last time we spoke, my uncle and I almost drowned in a lake. You saved us, Jerry.  Can you believe my ear wax plugged a hole in the boat?

UNCLE MAX SANDERS

So what does this schmegegge do after we survived? He takes me on a road trip to the Grand Canyon. I have acrophobia. In fact, I was going to write a book on phobias, but I was afraid it wouldn’t sell.

BERNIE

So what? All of us have phobias. I have fear of people sitting  next to me at weddings and funerals.

JERRY

Why?

BERNIE

Let me tell you. When I  was single I hated going to weddings, because the old lady next to you always whispered in your ear, “You’re next.” So now I go funerals and the same thing happens. Someone next to me says, “You’re next.”

MAX

I’m scared. The Grand Canyon is a mile deep. My feet are so tired. If I slip, I could land in the Colorado River.

BERNIE

Quit thinking about yourself.

MAX

Right now, I’m thinking about my stomach. Dammit, I’m hungry. Aren’t ants considered a delicacy?

BERNIE

Why?

MAX

There’s an army of them crawling up my leg.

BERNIE

Try it. Why not? I know ants are immune to the coronavirus because they have anty-bodies.

JERRY

And they’re socially dist-ant.

BERNIE

You’re always kvetching. The guide radioed for a pack mule so you don’t have to walk any further.

MAX

(sarcastic) Great. I asked for Seabiscuit and they’re bringing me Eeyore.

JERRY

Sounds like this is a disaster in the making. What’s the temperature there, fellas?

BERNIE

It’s a hundred degrees. I’m schvitzing.

JERRY

Not you, too.

MAX

Yeah. Now you’re kvetching, boychik.

BERNIE

I have a reason. It’s so hot, the cows are giving evaporated milk. In fact, you need to eat hot chilies just to cool off your mouth.

MAX

I agree. Only in Arizona does hot water come out of both taps.

JERRY

Did you know the Grand Canyon is one of seven natural wonders of the world?

MAX

Had no idea. The only thing more spectacular is Rudy Giuliani playing with himself in Borat 2.

BERNIE

Rudy thinks his pecker is an amusement park. Another crazy Republican.

JERRY

I understand Republicans are native to Arizona.

BERNIE

Yes. But according to Guinness World Records, they are now an endangered species.

JERRY

Who’s going to protect them?

BERNIE

The Supreme Court. That’s who it’s run by. For the Republicans and by the Republicans.

MAX

Excuse me, Bernie.

BERNIE

I’m in the middle of a conversation.

MAX

I can’t wait for the donkey. I’m going back to the hotel.

BERNIE

But you’ll miss seeing wildlife. There’s Bighorn sheep, deer, eagles.

MAX

If I want wildlife, I’ll watch Debbie Does Dallas.

JERRY

Be careful old-timer. If you fall, my ratings will go downhill.

MAX

So will I.

BERNIE

Trust me, he’ll fall. Max is the poster boy for Life Alert.

MAX

I won’t, Darth Vader. I’m inspired by the charity of a Rabbi in Brooklyn who circumcised my son when I was struggling in business. He said, “No need to pay me, I just keep the tips.”

JERRY

See you tomorrow everyone.
