Now, panel, what animal has a secret life? Mr. Roy Blount, Jr.?
ROY BLOUNT JR.: Monkeys. They are appalled by their portrayal in the popular culture, because they have no sense of humor. They also think that when you bang two little cymbals together it sounds really pretty.
SAGAL: Amy Dickinson?
AMY DICKINSON: Those blind and naked mole rats aren't actually naked. These shy, nocturnal creatures are really wearing teeny tiny spandex body suits.
CARL KASELL: From NPR and WBEZ-Chicago, this is WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!, the NPR News quiz. I'm Carl Kasell. We're playing this week with Maz Jobrani, Amy Dickinson, and Roy Blount, Jr. And, here again is your host, at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Peter Sagal.

Maz, some good news. This week Congress asked the TSA to stop pat-downs and other invasive procedures with a particularly vulnerable segment of citizens. Who?
John Irving is the author of The World According To Garp, A Prayer for Owen Meany, The Cider House Rules and many other works of fiction. His latest novel is called In One Person.
We've invited Irving to play a game called "The World According to Gorp." Garp is about sex, castration and bears. Gorp, on the other hand, is the mix of "good old raisins and peanuts" you eat when you're hiking.
