PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Now panel, what will be the big story out of the Sochi opening ceremonies? Mo Rocca.
MO ROCCA: The Iranian ice hockey team will enter the arena singing, It's Raining (unintelligible).
SAGAL: Faith Salie.
FAITH SALIE: Putin and Assad will appear in matching rainbow leotards and reveal through an interpretive ribbon dance that they carry a torch for each other.
SAGAL: And Tom Bodett.
TOM BODETT: The North Korean team will be lead in the parade by Kim Jung Un's missing Uncle Chang. You think I shot my own uncle, dear leader little Kim will say in a prepared statement. We totally punked you. That was Dennis Rodman's idea. High five, Denny.
CARL KASELL: 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. Thanks also to Mo Rocca, Faith Salie and Tom Bodett. Thanks to Steve Good-hair Edwards and everybody at the Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago. Thanks to our wonderful audience here at Mandell Hall. You guys are great. And thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal and we will see you next week.
