Show Details: September 2013
- First: Alonzo Bodden 16 (2 / 6)
- Second: Adam Felber 14 (4 / 5)
- Third: Neko Case 6 (2 / 2)
Peter almost said "Fucking, Australia" instead of "Fucking, Austria" (which is coincidentally funny since the Not My Job plays on people confusing Australia and Austria). Baz came back and said "there's not Fucking in Australia". They decided to move on afterwards in case someone slipped and used the word in the other manner. And yes, the name/word "Fucking", along with the phonetic spelling "Fooking", made it into the transcript for the segment on NPR.org.
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Adam Felber whispered the correct answer to Alonzo Bodden for Alonzo's last question and Alonzo repeated it and he didn't get a bell ding for it nor did Carl consider it a correct response when totting up the points (started with 2, six correct for a total of 14 points). Alonzo Bodden did the same for Neko Case and she got points for it. Neko Case uttered an expletive for the answer to her last question. At the end of the segment, Carl stated that Alonzo had 16 points.
- First: Faith Salie 15 (3 / 6)
- Second: Mo Rocca 11 (3 / 4)
- Third: P.J. O'Rourke 10 (2 / 4)
P.J.'s default answer for Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank seemed to be "twerked" and for his panelist prediction. Faith's response to coconuts being investigated for vote rigging was "bananas". Faith ended up with a Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question whose answer was "twerking".
Part of Peter's explanation of Faith's last Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank question had an expletive and was bleeped.
- First: Paula Poundstone 15 (3 / 6)
- Second: Roy Blount, Jr. 12 (2 / 5)
- Third: Jessi Klein 8 (2 / 3)
In the radio/podcast version of the show, it appeared that Jessi only had answered two Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correct even though Carl noted she had answered three correct.
- First: Kyrie O'Connor 12 (2 / 5)
- Second: Brian Babylon 11 (3 / 4)
