SAGAL: Faith Salie.

FAITH SALIE: After successfully and creepily rubbing the shoulders of the defense secretary's wife, Biden will open a massage parlor called Massage and VP.

SAGAL: Adam Felber.

ADAM FELBER: He's going to do pretty much what he does now, except at the front of a Wal-Mart.

(LAUGHTER)

BILL KURTIS, BYLINE: Well, if Joe Biden does any of those things, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Maz Jobrani, Faith Salie and Adam Felber. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal and we will see you next week in Des Moines, Iowa.

(APPLAUSE)
