CARL KASELL: Now panel, what is the next thing that will turn up to be worthless? Tom Bodett.

TOM BODETT: I don't personally believe it but the wishes you make before you blow out the candles on your birthday cake.


BODETT: It turns out totally worthless.


I can vouch for that. Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: You know how our parents always warned us that Santa only brings presents to nice girls?


ROBERTS: Just not true.


SAGAL: And Roy Blount, Jr.

ROY BLOUNT, JR. AUTHOR: A study that happens to have been underwritten by the vitamin industry will reveal that what's really useless is picky, picky science.


KASELL: And if any of those things turn out to be useless, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Tom Bodett, Roxanne Roberts and Roy Blount, Jr.


SAGAL: Thanks to Charles McCardy and everyone at WKNO. Thanks for a wonderful audience here in Memphis, Tennessee.


SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening at home. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.


SAGAL: This is NPR. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
