PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now panel, what will be the next toy to have a surge in popularity. Ms. Jessi Klein?

JESSI KLEIN: I think the next toy to be revived will be the classic medical game Operation, which will get a boost in ironic sales when Tim Tebow is finally caught exploring his sexuality during his first-ever game of doctor with a New York Jets cheerleader.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Mo Rocca?

MO ROCCA: Well, with the continued housing crisis, we'll all end up moving into homes made of Lincoln Logs.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Tom Bodett?

TOM BODETT: The Slinky will make a comeback as the Snooki, because it's interesting to watch and ultimately useless.
