Do we have to pick a winner here? Because it sounds like both men are making pretty bad arguments here.
Agreed. I really don’t know the other guy at all, but I think that it’s worth mentioning that the only time Seinfeld was actually funny was when he had Larry David writing for him.
The last time I saw Seinfeld do his own material he delivered his most recent “tight five” standup bit on The Late Show in 2016:
I noticed at the time that the cultural phenomena he was riffing on seemed so outdated that most of the material could have been written in the 1980s. He did a whole set of jokes on “Swanson Hungry-Man TV Dinners” even though Swanson hadn’t owned the Hungry Man brand for over seven years at that point.
Oh, hey, a James Altucher article. I’m sure this one won’t be tiresome, self-centered, or hacky in any way.
I was wondering why there was a post about an analysis of a rebuttal to an op-ed.
BB is who again…?
Look at the initials of the site you’re on at his very moment. All will become clear.
Hopefully one of the first two. Brigitte Bardot spends most of her time being an eco-fascist by supporting Marine Le Pen now.
I was thinking as I read the pieces…Seinfeld is a comic. His response is an extension of his stand-up material in many ways. Is it a rebuttal? sure, technically. But expecting it to be some form fitting valid argument…meh, he’s a comic and entertainer. Not his area.
But sure…any time we can take a situation to point and laugh at someone else…well, seems to be the human condition.
You’re freaking me out
There’s a ton of the twist
But we’re fresh out of shout
You’re wasting my time
Our records all show
You are filthy but fine
Well shoot. How about this BB instead?
