Now panel, how will the web celebrate its 25th birthday? Charlie Pierce.

CHARLIE PIERCE: It will reveal that all those Nigerian bankers were actually telling the truth. Suckers.


SAGAL: Cindy Shupack.

CINDY SHUPACK: Well, we won't know until the next day when photos start appearing on Facebook and getting Tweeted out about the internet dancing naked on a table in Las Vegas. And then it will be very embarrassing because years from now when people want to work with the internet, they'll look back at those pictures and although it's just turning 25 it still seems a little iffy.

SAGAL: I wouldn't trust it. Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Well, there's going to be a surprise party for the internet and a bunch of bad punctuation and porn's going to jump out of a cake.


CARL KASELL: Well, if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!


SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Charlie Pierce, Paula Poundstone and (unintelligible) to Cindy Shupack. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week in the zoo, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
