Our panelists predict, what will America look like after we go off the Fiscal Cliff?


Now, panel, what will America look like once we've gone off that looming fiscal cliff? Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Cheating husbands will only be able to afford to one-time their wives.


SAGAL: Hard. Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: They'll make a move about it. It'll be called "Grapes of Wrath: Reloaded."


SAGAL: And Bobcat Goldthwait?

BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT: Mostly naked mole people.


CARL KASELL: Well, if any of those things happen, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell.


SAGAL: Thanks also to Brian Babylon, Roxanne Roberts and Bobcat Goldthwait. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. Have a wonderful Christmas. We'll see you next week.


SAGAL: This is NPR.
