After The Scream sold for $120 million, our panelists predict what'll be the next thing to sell for an outrageous sum.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what will be the next big overpriced sale? Roy Blount Jr?

ROY BLOUNT JR: The phone number of that guy who shelled out $120 million for "The Scream."

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Kyrie O'Connor?

KYRIE O'CONNOR: Because of problems in the Euro zone, Mario and Luigi will sell their iconic plumbing company and every billionaire under 40 will bid on it.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Charlie Pierce?

CHARLIE PIERCE: Actually, Peter, someone will pay $18 million for the former Romney family station wagon. That's a hundred thousand for the car and $17.9 million for the car carrier on top.

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

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Roy Blount, Jr., Kyrie O'Connor, Charlie Pierce. Thanks to the staff and the crew at the Leed Center. Thanks to Nancy Finken and everyone at NET Radio Nebraska. Thanks to the wonderful crowd at the Leed Center, University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you back in Chicago next week.
