BILL KURTIS, BYLINE: From NPR and WBEZ Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME, the NPR News quiz. I'm legendary anchorman Bill Kurtis. And we're playing this week with Kyrie O'Connor, Charlie Pierce and Roy Blount Jr. And here, again, is your host at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Peter Sagal.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Thank you, Bill.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: In just a minute, Bill gets into the rhyme sauce and starts speaking in limericks. If you'd like to play, give us a call at 1-888-WAIT-WAIT. That's 1-888-924-8924. Right now, panel, it's time for a game we're calling...

KURTIS: Secrets of the Amazon.com.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: This, of course, is a game where you have to guess what else was purchased by people who bought something on Amazon.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Today, we're going to ask you about people who bought books by celebrities. Get your question right - there's one for each of you - you get a point. Roy, you're up first. According to Amazon, people who bought Justin Bieber's autobiography, "First Step 2 Forever," also bought which of these?

KURTIS: The Cliff Notes guide to Justin Bieber's autobiography...

(LAUGHTER)

KURTIS: ... "First Step 2 Forever."

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: "To Beeb Or Not To Beeb... Justin does Shakespeare."

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: A 10-yard roll of full-strength, Justin Bieber duct tape.

(LAUGHTER)

ROY BLOUNT JR.: I think, actually, he did To Beeb or Not to Beeb - I don't know. To Beeb or Not to Beeb.

SAGAL: No, actually it was the duct tape.

BLOUNT: Oh.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Just the thing for the HVAC repair man Belieber in your life.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Kyrie, next one's for you. Actor and enigma James Franco recently wrote a book of short stories called "Palo Alto." People who bought that also bought which of these?

KURTIS: The Ultimate Light Up Flashing Birthday Tiara.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: Francophone: Speaking the language of James Franco.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: The "127 Hours" home game with giant boulder and hacksaw.

(LAUGHTER)

O'CONNOR: OK. I'll take the tiara.

SAGAL: You're right. It was in fact the flashing birthday tiara. I don't know why.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: All right, Charlie. This last one is for you. Keith Richards wrote a children's book. It's called "Gus And Me." He has no recollection of writing it.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: But people who bought "Gus And Me" also bought what?

CHARLIE PIERCE: Heroin.

(LAUGHTER)

KURTIS: An advice book called "What Would Keith Richards Do?"

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: Rolling Stones Certified Kidney Stones.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Or...

KURTIS: Heroin.

(LAUGHTER)

PIERCE: I will go with the advice book.

SAGAL: You're right. It's called "What Would Keith Richards Do?" It's a charming book of anecdotes and quotes called Keithisms from the rock star.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: Very good.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks for playing Secrets of the Amazon.com.
