Best of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! featuring several favorite Not My Job guests and several never-before-aired moments
Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! taped two shows while in Minneapolis, Minnesota on October 19th and 20th. The Bluff the Listener and the Not My Job segments included on this Best Of show comes from the show that taped on October 20th.

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.

Another instance of Mo Rocca using the surname "Bagnoli" in his Bluff the Listener story.
