Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a world leader finally accomplishing something, Not My Job about Learjets, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will Britain do to get back into the EU?
Notes
After Norman Lear gave his answer for the first Not My Job question and Peter was trying to hint that it was not the correct answer, Peter accidentally said "Norman Lear" instead of "William Lear". Norman Lear only answered one Not My Job question correct and Bill Kurtis said that Norman and his 93-year old handicap made him a winner. I have not heard an official answer from the Wait Wait team on whether or not Norman actually won for the listener. Until I get an official response noting otherwise, it is noted that Norman only answered one correct and no exception.

Notes
During the Not My Job segment, the audience started yelling the correct answer for the 2nd question, in which Charles Bolden used as his answer. He later asked the audience for help on the 3rd question. During the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank segment, Tom Bodett couldn't quite get Oscar Pistorius's name correct for one of the answers; but, Peter accepted it as it was close enough. Also, Paula Poundstone's answer of "radar" was accepted as close enough when the actual answer was "sonar".
