The phone call audio cut out while the listener contestant for the Listener Limerick Challenge said what she does, right after she said "I am a horse...". The word that got cut out was "trainer". Peter and the panelists had a bit of fun with that. Right after Carl said the second Limerick, the audience completed the limerick before the listener contestant could.
