Listen to NPR’s “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” this Saturday to hear the mellifluous sound of Ben Popken’s voice. One of the quizzes will be to hear three customer service stories, and you have to guess which one is true. Ben will reveal the answer.

    Imagine Ben totally* naked during his answering, for extra fun!

    * (except for the bashful smile, of course)

    Oh oh oh — Mr Kott-terrr–

    Is the answer, “C”???
    It’s always C, isn’t it?

    C’mon, you can tell us!

    I read “hear the mellifluous sound of Ben Popken’s voice” and thought; who in the world could possibly think that. I came inside and sure enough, it was Ben himself. Now it all makes sense.

    @Cowboys_fan: Oh, crap. You’re right.

    Then per the Gawker Style Guide, it should be,

    I still think the answer is “C”.

    @Antediluvian: Thats hitting the nail right on the head.
    Also this sounds like a rip-off of sorts from Fact or Fiction, or some lame show like that I keep seeing on friday nights on some lame channel.

    Oh good! It makes me glad I have their podcast edition subscribed to in iTunes. Definitely worth the wait, although Saturday… hmmmm…

    I’ve been listening to this show weekly, almost since its inception, and it is rare that I know the answer to the “Bluff the Listener” game. I’m very excited because I am sure that I will have read the true story right here on this very blog. Now if only I had been the one playing (they tape on Thursday nights), I could have had Carl Kasell’s voice on my home answering machine!

    If one of the stories involves Charlie Pierce and Wisconsin, chose another one. Oh, and never pick Roxanne.
