PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, who will be on the Trillion-Dollar Coin? Kyrie O'Connor?

KYRIE O'CONNOR: Beyonce. After which, she will ascend into heaven, showing just a little under boob.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Adam Felber?

ADAM FELBER: Well, given that it's imaginary money, born out of mismanagement, desperation and bankruptcy, the only real choice is Donald Trump.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Yes, given that it's a bad sign altogether, it's not going to be just one face, it's going to be an aerial shot of the top of the heads of the entire Congress clustered together, and on the other side, France.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL: Well, if we see any of those faces on the trillion-dollar coin, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!.

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Kyrie O'Connor, Adam Felber, and Paula Poundstone. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We will see you right back here next week.

(APPLAUSE)
