Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!
An hour-long weekly radio news panel game show produced by Chicago Public Radio and National Public Radio.
About this creation
Not so long ago, September 17th to be exact (listen to the limerick section), I was a listener contestant on the NPR news game show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! hosted by Peter Sagal with announcer Carl Kasell. Now, I'm sure this doesn't mean much to the vast majority of you, but for me, it was a great thrill.

Well, it turns out that Peter actually is kind of a fan of Lego and even attended Brickworld 2011 where he was very impressed by Kevin Walter's Barad-d�r, among other things. We struck up a conversation and he invited me to a taping (actually the third I attended this year). Of course I wanted to build him something Lego, so Angus MacLane's CubeDude style seemed the perfect medium. With a little help (thanks Devon), I came up with these builds and presented them to Peter and Carl, who were very appreciative.

Blamous!

No way!!! I use to listen to "Car Talk" & "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me" every Saturday morning, whilst driving to a Kung Fu (never made it passed white belt). So that's what the men behind the mike look like, heh, fun fun!

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Very nice work (as always)! I love the look of the headphones. Are those tire parts you used?
Yup, used tires. But needed to modify (slice) the tubing to fit over the rope.

Quoting George G. These are so cool! I love the guy with the big thick black eyebrows :) Also, are you still coming down to the V&A with your froggie this holiday season? Because I'd certain like to go down and see him ( and say hi to you, if you're there)!

First of all, congratulations for being in 'Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!', detective. Your MOC is a fantastic tribute and I'm sure Mr.Sagal and Mr. Kasell very much appreciated it.

Ha these are so cool! They look just like them. I especially like the use of the trans black for spectacles, it works really well, and the same guy's little red tie is cute.

That is a cool experience! I love Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, and it's really neat that you got to meet the guys behind the funniest thing on the radio. If Peter Sagal likes Lego, then his awesomeness just grew even more as well.

Very cool, Dave. A neat experience/honor, to be sure. What really slays me is the last photo because the look on your face is the one you get right before unleashing one of your deceptively funny comments on a situation.

Never mind. I was too slow. :(

That's pretty cool, Dude! I listened to the limerick bit. Nice job getting those questions correct! Must have been difficult finding ones they could actually read on the air... The likenesses are quite good, too. Awesome!
