The audience's tradition of chanting "Luuuuuuke" continues in force today and was also done by Peter, the panel and the audience when Luke Burbank spectacularly won the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round.
The thick Chicago accent that Carl used in the first Limerick flummoxed the listener contestant, who is a court reporter and transcribes what is said in court.

Someone peeped in while Peter was doing the intro for the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round. Amy tried to get Peter and Carl accept "monkey" as a correct answer, but it wasn't the first answer she provided, which was "tiger", and the correct answer was "chimpanzee". A chimpanzee is an ape and not a monkey, which Peter said that listeners would write in if the two were mixed up.
