Picturing Jerry answering his landline, a thought occurred to me:

There are people old enough to drink who have no idea what this is all about.


#3

This only proves how formulaic Seinfeld was.

Or maybe:

Honestly, I don’t understand why a stranger would expect anyone to hug them. I think Jerry reacted exactly right.

He very politely and firmly said No.


#6

Blah, blah, blah.


#7

Yada yada yada.


#8

That’s part of the formula!

:slight_smile:


#9

Nothing wrong with a winning formula.


#10

Well shit… I always thought it was pronounced Kee-sha.


#11

After a while, it stops winning.

In the late 80s, practically all the stand-up comedy on TV was Seinfeld and Seinfeld imitators, but the Seinfeld style of observational humor started becoming self-parody by the mid-1990s.

That’s absolutely true, but it doesn’t change the fact that Seinfeld itself was brilliant.


#13

He was brilliant. His show was only watchable for all the little quotes and gags.

Until now, I’d never heard of her either.

But we can’t use that excuse any more can we. Thanks, internet.

@jlw there’s a typu in your headline. Looks like you have a dollar sign instead of an ess


#16

I had to look her up, then gave her a listen on Spotify. 30 seconds was all I could stand.


#17

I believe that the author of the post put that there intentionally. I am not a Kesha or Ke$ha fan to know what it means.


#18

These kids with their flingin flangin names, amirite?

Yeah! Pretty much:

The 2000’s came knocking on the door of the 1990’s and they didn’t answer.

The 2010’s rolled their eyes.
