PETER SAGAL, host: Now, panel, what will be the next apology we hear from an American company? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: The head honcho of Reese's Pieces will have to make a tearful apology to those who thought the peanuts they used were de-fatted, when in fact they're only partially de-fatted and have sent many to the bank with huge deposits.

SAGAL: Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: The president of Hair Club for Men will come clean that he is not a client.

SAGAL: And Jessi Klein?

JESSI KLEIN: Well, I don't know if Domino's will apologize, but they should apologize for releasing their infamous Oreo pizza, which I fell for and ordered and it did not contain the joy of either a pizza or an Oreo.

CARL KASELL, host: And if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Brian Babylon and Jessi Klein. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
