This is mildly amusing banter at its mild amusing best! We’re Jono Pryor and Ben Boyce, two best mates who started their work marriage a decade ago in a quest to become a hotter kiwi duo than a mince and cheese in a scalding service station pie! While we aren't there yet, you can catch us weekdays on The Hits breakfast to talk about our life misadventures, big interviews, fun games and plenty of LOLs. OK, we can’t promise LOLs but hopefully you stopped reading after we said LOLs the first time.

Pulling back the curtain a bit, off-air (as well as on-air) Jono calls everyone "mate". And it's become such a habit that sometimes he calls his wife, Jen, "mate" too. But Jen haaaaates it.

How would you feel being in the ocean, trying to catch your own fish for dinner, surrounded by hungry sharks who are also after the same fish?

So we've spent the most part of our lives being on TV and radio, but when people ask us to tell us a joke we can never think of one.

We also had Doggy Dan …
