Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me

Turkmenbashi made the big time this week. He was a topic during the “Bluff the Listener” portion of this week’s edition of Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, NPR’s news quiz. You can listen here to either the whole show or just the “Bluff the Listener” segment. I’ll give it away. The listener was bluffed, but he would have gotten it correct were he a regular reader around here.
