Description
Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about something going wrong at a Japanese Buddhist monastery, Not My Job about a Yankee, a hotel and a foxtrot, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will be the next branch of the armed forces?
Notes
None of the panelists could quite say the name of the Japanese guesthouse at the Mount Joya's Buddhist temple. The guesthouse's name is "Sekishoin Shukubo". In the version of the show that was broadcasted, Bobcat Goldthwait only answered six of his Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions correct; but, Bill Kurtis stated that Bobcat had answered seven correct. Since only seven of Babcat's eight Lightning round questions were included in the edited version of the show, either: Bobcat did answer seven correct or Bill had miscounted the number of correct answers. That said, even if Bobcat was only given credit for six correct answers instead of seven, he would still have won the show with 15 points. As with any other scoring anomaly, the score Bill Kurtis stated on the show is the official score on record.
