Mack and Jack are twins who were separated at birth and never knew they had a twin, or even that they were adopted until they see one another on the street in Athens, Ohio, and do a double-take (pun intended). After seeing each other and talking, they are learning a bit more.
Jack: Boy, Sells Park is one cool place!
Mack: Sure is.
Jack: Anything interesting in the news today?
Mack: Huh! I’ll say! For all their talk about patriotism, more than 1500 of the “one-percenters” renounced their U.S. citizenship last year so they didn’t have to pay taxes!
Jack: You sound like a Democrat!
Mack: Well sure…aren’t you?
Mack: WHAT! A REPUBLICAN?!
Jack: You really are a Democrat?
Mack: To think that my one and only twin is a Republican!
Jack: Duh, if you had more than one you wouldn’t be a twin.
Mack: I thought twins were supposed to be more alike than…well, completely different! A one-percenter! I can’t get over it! And here I thought you and Velma were broke!
Jack: We are! You can be a poor Republican. They’ll take whatever they can get.
Mack: How and why is what I want to know! I’m a Union man, Jack!
Jack: Your adoptive father is a Democrat?
Mack: Of course he is.
Jack: Mine was a Republican.
Jack: I wonder what our natural mother was…is?
Mack: I heard 51 percent of white women voted for Trump.
Jack: And I heard the Republicans want to make it a crime for a doctor to tell his pregnant patient if her baby is abnormal…
Mack: In these days of that debilitating mosquito!
Jack: Hopefully we’ll know how Mom voted on Saturday, when this show continues at the Farmers Market and we can meet our natural mother!
