PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, who will the next big public resignation be from? Roy Blount, Jr.?

ROY BLOUNT: Siri. But not...

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

BLOUNT: You think there's just one Siri? No. There are thousands of Siris. How could this one Siri do all that work? She's quitting because she says most of the other girls just want to meet early-adopting guys.

SAGAL: Faith Salie?

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

FAITH SALIE: In light of the news that Goldman Sachs calls its clients "muppets," Kermit the Frog will angrily resign because he feels like his bankers don't take him seriously.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Charlie Pierce?

CHARLIE PIERCE: Actually, Peter, Jesus left an angry epistle at the Vatican saying I'm resigning as Savior and going back to carpentry. That Santorum guy can speak for himself.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL: 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 Charlie Pierce, Faith Salie, Roy Blount, Jr. Thanks to the staff and crew at Centennial Hall at the University of Arizona.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to this wonderful crowd here, Tucson, Arizona. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
