Now, panel, what will be the next big revelation from the world of literature? Luke Burbank.

LUKE BURBANK: Holden Caulfield's father secretly funneled millions of untaxed dollars to him over the years.


SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Jay Gatsby was never great or even good. His wife says he was kind of meh.


SAGAL: Paula Poundstone.

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn didn't use a raft. They used Ski-Doos, and they ate freeze-dried food on the island.


CHIOKE I'ANSON: And if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you so much, Chioke I'anson.


SAGAL: Thanks also to Luke Burbank, Roxanne Roberts and Paula Poundstone. Thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll be back with you next week.
