SAGAL: Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Big Screen Television.

SAGAL: Maz Jobrani.

MAZ JOBRANI: Since this year it was Cheese, next year it'll be Mac so people can go around saying, meet my kids, Mac and Cheese.

CARL KASELL: Well, if any babies get those names, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Faith Salie, Paula Poundstone, Maz Jobrani.
