Now, panel, what will be the big World Cup scandal? Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: The ball never, ever gets kicked because it's possessed.

SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Confused by the meaning of World Cup, thousands of surgically enhanced women will descend on Capetown wearing only their DD bras.

CHARLIE PIERCE: In a bow to conservationists all over the world, the team from the Ivory Coast will henceforth be known as the Imitation Plastic Elephant Tusk Coast.

Well, if any of those things happen at the World Cup, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!
