PETER SAGAL, HOST:

We want to remind everybody they can join us most weeks right here at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Ill. For tickets and more information, go to wbez.org. Or you can find a link at our website, waitwait@npr.org.

Right now, panel, it is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Bobcat, police in Ohio pulled over a vehicle that was blasting music while the people inside were drinking beers. That is not that unusual. What's unusual is that the vehicle was a what?

BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT: It was a - they were Amish. It was a coach.

SAGAL: You're exactly right.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: It was an Amish buggy.

GOLDTHEWAIT: Yeah. If this buggy's rocking, don't come a-knocking.

SAGAL: Yeah, exactly.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Actually, I think the bumper sticker usually says, if this buggy is a-rocking, we're churning butter, so...

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: So the police, you know, hear this thumping bass. And they found this Amish buggy blasting tunes with a case of beer strapped to the top and young Amish men inside drinking other beers. The police pulled it over, and the kids, Amish kids, saw it and ran off into the woods. But, of course, the horses kept going...

SAGAL: ...Leading to an exciting, slow-speed chase.

SAGAL: Right.

ROBERTS: ...You know? I thought it was adorable, actually (laughter).

ALONZO BODDEN: I think hip-hop has now penetrated every market possible.

SAGAL: It's true.

(LAUGHTER)

BODDEN: I think once you get the Amish jam, you've pretty much got it.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "OLD TOWN ROAD (REMIX)")

BILLY RAY CYRUS: (Singing) Yeah, I'm gonna take my horse to the old town road. I'm gonna ride till I can't no more. I'm gonna take my horse to the old town road. I'm gonna ride till I can't no more.

LIL NAS X: (Rapping) I got the horses in the back. Horse tack is attached. Hat is matte black, got the boots that's black to match. Riding on a...

SAGAL: Coming up, we're down to clown. It's 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.
