Our panelists predict after Budweiser was rebranded "America," what will be the next big product to be renamed and why.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now panel, what'll be the next product to get a new name? Peter Grosz.

PETER GROSZ: To make themselves even more popular with millennials, the clothing store Forever 21 will rename themselves Bernie Sanders.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson.

(APPLAUSE)

AMY DICKINSON: In order to improve their image, North Carolina has announced that they're changing their name to North Korea.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Mo Rocca.

MO ROCCA: Viagra is being renamed Boniva because let's face it, Boniva sounds like a nickname for the thing Viagra is supposed to give you.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, panel, will ask him about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Peter Grosz, Amy Dickinson, Mo Rocca. Thanks to everyone at Rhode Island Public Media and the fabulous audience here at the Providence Performing Arts Center, you denizens of the ocean state. And thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.
