Paula was a bit jealous about the court and lawyer crackdown in Pakistan, particularly that the lawyers were being hit with sticks. Roxanne asks Paula, "spend a lot of times around laywers, huh?". This lead to a little laughter when the listener playing the Listener Limerick Challenge said that she was a lawyer.

Peter went a bit too far with conjugations of the Hebrew neologism "le condel", with Charlie threatening Peter if he did anymore conjugations.

When Paula had a hard time coming up with "Ho, ho, ho!", Peter and the other panelists gave her interesting hints about what mall Santas can no longer say in Austrailia. The entire bit got really funny when Paula went down the route of what Don Imus said to got him kicked off of the air.

The podcast version of the show Listener Limerick Challenge and Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank duplicated.
