Diaper Class.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Right now, panel, time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Roy, Japan Airlines has introduced a new service for their passengers. You can pick a seat that is what?

ROY BLOUNT JR: Dry.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: It would be terrifying if that were an option.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: No. I'll give you a hint. The trick is you pick your seat as to be both far away and upwind from the diaper.

BLOUNT JR: Not too close to a small child.

SAGAL: That's exactly right.

BLOUNT JR: Oh.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: So you can pick a seat far away from babies. So when you go to your check-in on your Japan Airlines flight and you go to the seat map, look for the little happy baby icon on the seats, which indicates the presence of a little, miserable baby.

(LAUGHTER)

BLOUNT JR: And don't sit on that one.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: How do you guys feel about sitting on planes next to babies?

NEGIN FARSAD: As a lady who just birthed one of those...

SAGAL: Yes?

FARSAD: ...You know, my baby - I'm not trying to brag, but, like...

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: ...She's pretty dope. Like, she's, like, pretty chill on a plane.

SAGAL: And how old is she now, 14?

FARSAD: She's, like, a...

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: Close. She's 9 months.

SAGAL: Yeah.

FARSAD: I will say, though, that we had a pooping incident that was epic.

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: But this is what happened. The baby - everything's great. The baby doesn't cry. The baby doesn't do anything for five hours. And traveling with a dog - dog and baby.

BILL KURTIS: Oh, my God.

FARSAD: Pomeranian - furry, little guy. And the...

SAGAL: Oh, no.

FARSAD: And at the end of the trip, OK, 20 minutes left to landing, the plane has some turbulence, which makes the baby nauseous. Baby vomits - projectile vomits all over everybody.

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: But the person who gets it the most is the dog.

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: The dog then goes into the aisle and does what dogs do.

BLOUNT JR: Oh.

ADAM BURKE: Oh.

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: And he shakes it out...

SAGAL: Oh.

KURTIS: Oh, God.

FARSAD: ...Getting vomit over 40 additional people.

(LAUGHTER)

FARSAD: The plane screams like bloody murder. And anyways, we laughed and laughed.

SAGAL: I'm just...

KURTIS: Yeah.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: I'm just trying to imagine what the little icon is for that.

(LAUGHTER)

BURKE: Oh, it's Spirit Airlines.

(SOUNDBITE OF TALKING HEADS SONG, "STAY UP LATE")

SAGAL: Coming up, we turn to the dog whistleblower in our Bluff the Listener game. Call 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR.
