Salt Lake City, UT – The cast and crew of NPR's Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me are in Salt Lake City this week to create one of their "oddly informative news quizzes." We've got Peter Sagal in studio for a look at the job of a political satirist. We'll also take on the limerick. We received nearly 400 entries in our first (and probably only) limerick contest. You'll hear our favorites, and -- for the moment you've all been waiting for -- we'll announce the winner. It was Wait, Wait limericist Philip Goedicke's decision, so we'll have him on to defend himself. Doug is also joined by Utah's own Pat Bagley, and renowned language expert Richard Lederer.
