I love ‘Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me’

…and I love Peter Sagal even more after watching this, his 1988 appearance on Jeopardy:

Dan sent that to me ages ago, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. Nora fail.

Also, I love this story he wrote for the NY Times Magazine in 2007. So adorable.

Jim is having a contest in his class for the best parody of the classic “This is Just to Say” poem by William Carlos Williams.  Here’s the original:

This Is Just to Say
By William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

Nora’s entries:

I have finished
the Sunday crossword
that was in
the bathroom

and which
you were probably
trying to finish
for a really long time

Forgive me
it felt so good
to finally fill in 45-across
because you really
should have known
that “obi” was the answer
by now

I have watched
the episode of ‘Gossip Girl’
that was saved
on our tiVo

and which
you were probably
to watch together this weekend

Forgive me
It was OMFG-a-licious
so scandalous
so naughty

Can you do better?  Leave yours in the comments..
