PETER SAGAL, Host:

Now panel, what will be the next big mystery to be solved? Charlie Pierce?

CHARLIE PIERCE: DNA tests prove that a certain Walter Whitman of L.A. not only wrote the book of love but did indeed put the bomp in the bomp-de-bomp.

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?

AMY DICKINSON: Well somebody's going to figure out where the president's positive poll numbers are hiding.

SAGAL: And Mo Rocca?

MO ROCCA: Amelia Earhart will emerge. She's running a woman's bookstore in Portland.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL, Host:

Well, if any of those mysteries are solved, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Charlie Pierce, Amy Dickinson, Mo Rocca. Thanks to all of you for listening.
