Notes
This episode is sponsored by the letters: W, T and F. One of P.J. O'Rourke's panelist question and answer is identical to one that guest host Luke Burbank asked panelist Aamer Haleem (2006-08-12), regarding hungry men preferring "generous sized young lady". Both instances made references to Bill Clinton's scandal with Monica Lewinsky, but did not lead to any comments about such women carrying trays of food this time around.

Notes
The second limerick during the Listener Limerick Challenge called the two slashes in a URL "backslashes". Technically, the two slashes in a URI/URL are actually forward slashes. While Mo Rocca was trying to come up with an answer for Mo's last Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question for the round, Peter interrupted Mo and told Faith Salie that "this might go on for a while".
