PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, we're going to ask our panelists to predict a line from the next lost and found Dr. Seuss book to be published.

WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME is a production of NPR and WBEZ Chicago in association with Urgent Haircut Productions, Mr. Doug Berman, Benevolent Overlord. Phillip Goedicke writes our limericks. Our intern is Jesse Be-tend of the world as we know it... And I feel fine. Our web guru is the extraordinary Beth Novey. Special thanks to the crew here at Wolf Trap. BJ Leiderman composed our theme. Our program is produced by Miles Dornboss, technical directions from Lorna White. Our CFO's Ann Nguyen. Our production coordinator is Robert Neuhaus. Our senior producer is Ian Chillag. And the executive producer of WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME is Mr. Michael Danforth.

Now, panel, what will be a line from the next Dr. Seuss book? Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: From the upcoming, "Why Mommy Drinks."

(LAUGHTER)

ROBERTS: Barking dogs and broken toys, you try raising seven boys. Diapers, dirt and little weenies, mommy needs her dry martinis.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Who publishes for me in my current situation is a best-kept secret in our nation. It's only told on a need-to-know basis, same as Harper Lee's works since Atticus became a racist.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Adam Felber.

ADAM FELBER: He huffed, and he posed, and he stopped at the stump. He puffed out his chest and he stuck out his rump. But we told him he'd lost, and he felt like a chump. And that was the last that we heard about President Trump.

(APPLAUSE)

BILL KURTIS, HOST:

Well, if we read any of that, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT ...DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Adam Felber, Roxanne Roberts, Paula Poundstone. Special thanks to Heidi Kibirsky and Sara Beesley at Wolf Trap and our fabulous audience here at the beautiful Wolf Trap National Park.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week, Millennium Park, Chicago. Be there.
