PETER SAGAL, HOST:

In just a minute, we're going to ask our panelists, now that President Obama has mastered kitesurfing, what will be his next activity? But first, let me tell you all that support for NPR comes from NPR stations, and Visit St. Pete Clearwater, offering 35 miles of white sand Florida beaches and the Salvador Dali Museum, presenting "Frida Kahlo at the Dali" through April 17, at visitstpeteclearwater.com. Progressive Insurance, with insurance for cars, home, boat, motorcycles, RVs and commercial vehicles, at 1-800-PROGRESSIVE and progressive.com, and Lumber Liquidators, a proud sponsor of NPR, offering more than 400 styles, including hardwood, bamboo, laminate and vinyl, with flooring specialists in hundreds of stores nationwide, more at lumberliquidators.com or 1-800-HARDWOOD.

WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is a production of NPR and WBEZ Chicago in association with the Urgent Haircut Productions. Doug Berman is our benevolent overlord. Philipp Goedicke writes our limericks.
