I am proud of the fact that I love Wait Wait Don't Tell Me (The NPR Newsquiz show, coming to you live from the Chase Auditorium in beautiful downtown Chicago, and here's your host, Peter Sagel...). I am less proud of the fact that, weekday mornings, I listen to Opie & Anthony. I'm sorry, but pre-coffee I can NOT handle news from Iraq and life during wartime, global warming, conspiracies and cronyism. Nope, pre-coffee, I want boob and fart jokes, please.

This week, O&A got suspended from XM following an off-color remark not made by them but certainly not censored by them on their show. They protested, saying, "It's not like we've got the same standards as NPR."

To which, Wait Wait replied, "NPR has standards? Uh Oh."

The dork in me grins.
