PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, how will Hostess save themselves? Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: They'll stop current production and shelve the Twinkies they have now, for 10 or 12 years, until the economy is in full swing again, and then sell them, fresh as ever.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: They will change their name and hit the urban market by calling them Twinkiez, with a Z.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Kyrie O'Connor?

KYRIE O'CONNOR: Two words, Twinkie porn.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Oh god no.

CARL KASELL, HOST:

Well, if Hostess does any of that panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Paula Poundstone, Kyrie O'Connor, Brian Babylon. Thanks to all of you for listening. My name is Peter Sagal and we will see you next week from Detroit.
