PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what will we find out that Mr. Obama was writing so studiously during the debate? Maz Jobrani?

MAZ JOBRANI: Who would name their kid Mitt?

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?

AMY DICKINSON: Dear Big Bird.

SAGAL: Aw.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Dear Michelle, happy anniversary, honey.

(LAUGHTER)

POUNDSTONE: If this debate was split screen, I'd be really screwed, huh?

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL: And, if we find out the President was doing any of that, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Maz Jobrani, Amy Dickinson, and Paula Poundstone, great to see you all.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal; we'll see you next week.
