Our panelists predict what will be the big surprise at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies in a couple weeks.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what'll be the big surprise at the Olympic opening ceremonies? Bobcat Goldthwait?

BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT: Oh, a rousing version of "We Will Rock You," sung by the surviving members of Queen and the actual Queen of England.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: We will rock you. We will rock you. Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Prince Harry will march in the opening parade, wearing the Union Jack, only the Union Jack.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Peter Grosz?

CARL KASELL: The announcement of a new Olympic sport, the most challenging one ever: asking Brooke Shields to the prom.

(LAUGHTER)

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

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Peter Grosz, Roxanne Roberts, and Mr. Bobcat Goldthwait. Thanks to all of you for listening. We will see you next week.
