All you public radio nerds (Hi, Allen) will appreciate this Zombie Apocalypse parody of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.
CARL: From NPR and Chicago Public Radio, this is Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, the NPR news quiz. I’m Carl Kasell, and here’s your host at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago: Peter Sagal!
PETER: Thanks, Carl! Hello, everyone! We’re going to be cutting our show a little short today, because, as you may have heard, there’s an apocalypse happening! But we didn’t let the election of Barack Obama stop us, and we’re not going to let the zombie hordes stop us either. After the show today, myself, Carl, and the panelists will be taking our families to the secret underground NPR bunker, and no, you can’t come. I bet you wish you’d donated more during that last pledge drive!
PAULA: Sure, rub it in.
MO: The mug with the NPR logo was just too appealing.
PETER: To play, give us a call at 1-888-WAIT-WAIT. That’s 1-888-924-8924. Our first and only listener-contestant is on the line. What’s your name?
PETER: Actually, according to my card here, your name is Steve Ryerson, from right here in Chicago! Steve is, or I should say was, an investment banker, and we all know they were the first to be targeted and converted into mindless zombies.
TOM: You mean they weren’t before?
MO: It explains a lot about the financial collapse.
