Prediction

Our panelists celebrate the 10th anniversary of Facebook by predicting what we'll be wasting our time on 10 years from today.

CARL KASELL: Now panel, how will we be wasting our time ten years from now? Tom Bodett.

TOM BODETT: Well, as the second term of President Chris Christie winds down Americans will be wasting a lot of time stalled in revenge traffic jams across the United States.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: We'll still be trying to scrub all those drunken spring break pictures and slightly offensive jokes off all our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram accounts.

SAGAL: And Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: We will count and categorize Jimmy Fallon's jokes for fun and profit.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

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

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

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Peter Sagal is me. We'll see you next week in Phoenix.
