Our panelists predict what will be written on the first postcard from a space tourist.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what will the first postcard from a space tourist say? Mo Rocca.

MO ROCCA: Greetings from the International Space Station. Wish you were Mir.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: I could buy that. Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: I got the middle seat and I had to check my bags for 35 bucks.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Tom Bodett.

TOM BODETT: Dear Sweetie, haven't stopped throwing up for three days. You were right, we should've just burned the money.

(LAUGHTER)

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

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Mo Rocca, Paula Poundstone, and Tom Bodett. Thanks to all of you for listening.

(SOUNDBITE OF CHEERING)

SAGAL: I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
