Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about advances in education, Not My Job about Gilligan's Island, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: how will the United States regain #1 status as the most obese nation in the country?
Notes
Carl Kasell returns back to Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! Peter and the three panelists had a fair amount of fun with the "p" in "comptroller" in regards to Eliot Spitzer, and Paula had fun with the secondary pronunciation of "comptroller" with non-related words. Paula went the offensive with the two studies featured in the second panelist round. Paula's coughing while Peter did the info blurb between the second panelist round and the Listener Limerick Challenge lead to funny banter between the two.

Description
Who's Carl This Time?, Bluff the Listener about someone inadvertently solving a crime, Not My Job about Tig's near-namesakes, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what is the next way someone will entice us to follow them on Twitter?
Notes
The first listener contestant either hung up or the phone call got dropped while the panel and Peter discussed the answer to the third question. This was noted, with some humor, by Peter and the panel. Carl paused a bit while trying to calculate how many questions Alonzo Bodden needed to answer correctly to win. In the aired/podcast version, Carl only stated how many was needed to tie with Faith. Also, in the edited version of the show, it seemed like Alonzo Bodden only answered four questions (out of six) correctly. Carl stated that he had answered five correctly. Audience groaned when Peter said that the driver that picked up a stranded Dave Matthews, didn't "crashed into him".
