Our panelists predict, now that he's released his birth certificate, what will President Obama reveal next?

PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now Panel, what will President Obama reveal next? Faith Salie?

FAITH SALIE: In a bold move, Obama's going to choose the star of Trump's show "Celebrity Apprentice" Meatloaf as his 2012 running mate, and run as Obama-loaf, the other white meat.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: A small but vocal group called Teapotters, who insist that Obama is a teapot, finally annoy him enough to get him to reveal his full body scan to prove once and for all that he is not short, stout, does not have a handle nor a spout. And even when steamed up, will not shout.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Poetic. And Roy Blount, Jr.?

ROY BLOUNT: Photographs will be brought out from the 70s in which, bizarrely enough, Obama's hair looks a lot like Donald Trump's.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL, Host:

Well, if President Obama reveals any of those things, Panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kassel. Thanks also to Faith Salie, Paula Poundstone and Roy Blount, Jr. Thanks to all of you for listening, you've been fabulous.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: We'll see you again next week.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SAGAL: This is NPR.
