Our panelists predict how Amazon will get back at New York for rejecting them.


Now, panel, how will Amazon get back at New York for rejecting them? Luke Burbank.

LUKE BURBANK: If anyone from New York tries to order something via Amazon, it'll just be like, new phone. Who this?


SAGAL: Maeve Higgins.

MAEVE HIGGINS: Amazon is going to break the subway. They're going to make the city's state-of-the-art MTA unreliable and slow. And they're going to fill it full of rats.


SAGAL: That'll show them. Alonzo Bodden.

ALONZO BODDEN: Amazon is going to buy Manhattan and give it back to the Native Americans for $24.


BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, we're going to ask you about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Luke Burbank, Maeve Higgins and Alonzo Bodden. Thanks to all of you for listening.


SAGAL: I'm Peter Sagal. And we'll see you next week.


SAGAL: This is NPR.
