[Serling stands in shadows, enters shot]

SERLING: Picture, if you will, a flashing community center message sign, faithfully sending out its important messages on a clear and crispy Tuesday morning along a deserted street.

SERLING: Next, picture a lone runner, clipping along at a veerry respectable pace with admirable form, who notices the flashing sign and is drawn to it like a moth to a bright lantern on the darkest night ever.

RUNNER [TO HIMSELF]: “Boy, that sign is bright. Are my shoulders tense? Hmm, they have a Facebook page. Midfoot, midfoot, midfoot. I wonder what kind of classes they have? No chicken wings, no chicken wings! …”

[camera quickly flashes back and forth between the message sign, our runner, and an ill-placed, three foot pile of pine needles hidden in the shadows along the deserted street]

SERLING: Finally, picture, if you will, a collision between man, information, and the seemingly innocent debris from a peaceful evergreen.

RUNNER: Whoa!!!!!

[Serling shakes his head, rolls his eyes, utters “pffffft”, and returns to shadows leaving shot]

[Theme song volume increases, then ends]
