Our panelists try and predict what is hiding in Mitt Romney tax returns.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what is in Mitt Romney's tax returns? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: The story of a little fella who dreamed of making lots of money, and did.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Jessi Klein?

JESSI KLEIN: Last year, his largest multimillion dollar investment was in a very rare Beanie Baby.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: He actually bought the phantom tollbooth and tried to write it off as a tax write-off.

(LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL: And, if any of those things turn up in Mitt Romney's taxes, 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.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
