Now, panel, what'll be the big Halloween costume this year? Mo Rocca.

MO ROCCA: A toilet bowl stuffed with printed out emails, otherwise known as a WikiLeaks dump.


PESCA: P.J. O'Rourke.

P J O'ROURKE: Well, according to statistics from the National Institutes of Health, almost 1 out of 5 trick or treaters that show up at your house will be dressed as an obese child.


PESCA: Faith Salie.

FAITH SALIE: Trump's Twitter feed. The costume is a cute, white birdie with tired little wings and a sign that says shoot me.


BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

PESCA: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks, also, to Mo Rocca, P.J. O'Rourke and Faith Salie. And thanks to all of you for listening. I'm Mike Pesca. We'll see you next week.
