PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, who will be the next surprise winner of the Nobel Prize? Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Jennifer Aniston because she never wins anything.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?

AMY DICKINSON: The Nobel Peace Prize will go to an actual can of peas.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Clever. Nobody saw that coming. And Adam Felber?

ADAM FELBER: In physics, for his pioneering work in folding the fabric of space-time to the point of near-total self-erasure, to Mike Pence.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Amy Dickinson, Adam Felber. Thanks to the staff and crew at the Auditorium Theatre. Thanks to everybody at the WXXR in Rochester. Thanks to our fabulous audience right here.
