Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring recent Not My Job guests
When Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! was in Portland, Oregon back in June 2016, they recorded two shows, one on Thursday the 23rd, and one on Friday the 24th. The one taped on Thursday was edited and then aired that weekend. The segments from the Friday show did not immediately air, as some included questions that were already asked on the Thursday show.

The Bluff the Listener segment and the Not My Job segment from the Friday show were aired for the first time on this Best Of show.

Normally, the chosen bluff and the correct bluff from Bluff the Listener segments re-aired on Best Of shows do not get noted in the Stats Page database. In this case, the Bluff the Listener segment was not aired as part of a regular Wait Wait show, I have noted the chosen and correct bluff information for this show.
