PETER SAGAL, HOST:
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.
DICKINSON: And they're not blind either, because they had to see in order to zip up their teeny tiny zippers.
SAGAL: And Maz Jobrani?
MAZ JOBRANI: Iguanas aren't the cuddly pets from Central and South America that we've come to know them as, but are actually here to take jobs away from the American lizard.
CARL KASELL: Well, if any of that comes true, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!
SAGAL: Thank you Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Maz Jobrani, Amy Dickinson, and Roy Blount, Jr.
SAGAL: Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We will see you next week.
