Our panelists predict what New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg will try to ban next.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now panel, what will Mayor Bloomberg try and ban next? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Well, it's elevators, Peter.

(LAUGHTER)

POUNDSTONE: No more elevators. It'll kill some but the rest will trim right down.

SAGAL: Bobcat Goldthwait?

BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT: Playing tag and catching butterflies, both activities encourage children to run unpredictably in patterns, often running into traffic.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Faith Salie?

FAITH SALIE: Well, since he's doing away with things that are super sized with no value, the mayor is banning Donald Trump's ego.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

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

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. It's great to have you back. Thanks also to Faith Salie, Bobcat Goldthwait, Paula Poundstone. Thanks to all of you for listening.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week, and we'll be happy to do so.
