Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about an employee getting into trouble for terrible workplace behavior, Not My Job about bacon, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be NASA's next disappointing announcement?
Notes
The show's producers found that Roy Blount Jr.'s guess for the first panelist round of "texting" actually had an ICD-10 diagnosis code. Roy got a ding for his guess. During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, Roy couldn't remember Ralph Lauren's last name for one of his questions, so Roxanne helped him by whispering "Lauren" to Roy and he got the point for providing the full and correct answer.

Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a hot new tourist destination, Not My Job about cougars, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the big surprise at the first Democratic debate next week?
Notes
During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, when Amy Dickinson didn't know the name of the current FIFA President, Paula Poundstone helped out with a big hint. Amy got points for her answer. P.J. O'Rourke's answer of "tofu turkey" was close enough of an answer for Peter Sagal when it came to the correct answer of the contents of a stolen truck in Portland, Oregon filled with tofu and organic juice. That gave P.J. enough points to come away with an outright win over Amy.
