PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Right now, panel, it is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Paula, this week we learned about a new party trend hitting the scene in Los Angeles...

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Oh, yeah.

SAGAL: ...As I'm sure you know. Used to be you'd get, I don't know, a magician to show up or maybe a Kardashian. Now the must-have guest is what?

POUNDSTONE: Oh, wow, must-have guest at a Hollywood party.

SAGAL: Yeah.

POUNDSTONE: An insurance person.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: That would be exciting.

POUNDSTONE: Yeah. Yeah.

SAGAL: No. I'll give you a hint. I mean, they go to the parties. They're not really into it, though. They just say it's (imitating bleating).

POUNDSTONE: Oh, you bring a sheep.

SAGAL: Close.

POUNDSTONE: A goat.

SAGAL: Yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

POUNDSTONE: Would you just do that again? Would you do your goat again?

SAGAL: I already did my turkey for you.

POUNDSTONE: I know. I want you to do your goat again.

PETER GROSZ: There's a goat button in our future.

POUNDSTONE: I want to have a whole, like, Fisher-Price farm.

(LAUGHTER)

POUNDSTONE: But yours was kind of a Jewish goat, wasn't it?

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: No, no, this is a goat. (Imitating bleating). No, no, this is a Jewish goat. (Imitating bleating).

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Subtle difference.

GROSZ: It's - this is a terrible can, and such small portions.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Anyway, yes, the hot thing to do, according to Reuters, in LA is party with tiny goats. A company called Party Goats LA charges $99 an hour to have two, quote, "Nigerian Dwarf goats" dressed up in purple velvet suits show up at your party. And the best part is...

GROSZ: This sounds like, just, like, you pay to watch people, like, abuse goats.

SAGAL: No, you pay to - oh, look at the goats. The goats are here. Let's go to Peter's house for a party. He always has goats. That's how it works.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Is this...

POUNDSTONE: And then they go, are they his goats? No, no, he rents them.

(SOUNDBITE OF GOAT BLEATING)

SAGAL: (Imitating bleating).

SAGAL: Coming up, there ain't no party like a Bluff The Listener party. Call 1-888-WAITWAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR.
