PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what new words will we see on the SAT? Faith Salie.

FAITH SALIE: In an effort to preserve some old school SAT words but add some relevant pop culture, two new words are chiwetelejioforebearance and lupitanyongoprobrium.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Mike Birbiglia.

MIKE BIRBIGLIA: A future SAT word will be Facebook, example sentence, Remember Facebook?

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Adam Felber.

ADAM FELBER: The word will be perfect as in that thing that each and every one of you snowflakes are. Ah, just now take your 1,600 and go, you scamps.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL: Well, if any of those words appear, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Adam Felber, Faith Salie, and Mike Birbiglia. Mike, it's good to have you here.
