Does anyone besides me listen to this on NPR?

It's a very funny show on the news. Last weekend, they were satirizing GM's list of words their salesmen were to avoid, such things as Titanic, Hindenburg, and widow maker. Well, the hosts of the show thought GM's list was incomplete, so they added to it. For example, additional words salesmen should not say about GM autos are corpse friendly and Chevy Impale - a. Laughing

For those unfamiliar with the show, you can give a listen here: http://www.npr.org/programs/wait-wait-dont-tell-me/

The Bluff the Listener segment is really good.

Always enjoy the Wait Wait show, it's like Car Talk for news buffs. Smile I missed the episode you mention, though...

I rarely listen to the radio on weekends unless I'm in the car, but I have caught that show a few times. It's a fun listen.
