Our panelists predict what'll be the next big viral fundraiser after the Ice Bucket Challenge.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

So panel, what is the next big viral fundraiser? Roy Blount Jr.

ROY BLOUNT JR.: The wedgie challenge, which draws attention to prostate problems.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: It'll be the Lego bin challenge to defeat OCD. People take their kids' big plastic container of Legos and dump them over their heads and just freak out.

SAGAL: And Adam Felber.

ADAM FELBER: It's the Ice Cube challenge where you raise money to combat gang violence by dropping noted hip-hop stars on your head.

(LAUGHTER)

BILL KURTIS, BYLINE: And if any of those things happen, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Special thanks to Chris Schaefer at Cranwell. Also thanks to Chris Ruigomez with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Thanks also to Adam Felber, Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount Jr. and our very own immortal Carl Kasell. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. It's good to be back with you. We will see you next week in Chicago.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
