People who don’t like Seinfeld are just….well…. republicans? I don’t know. It's not even just the factor of having a sense of humor as a sign of intelligence. It's Seinfeld. It's the celebration of the flawed, the admission of humanity , on all its quirks, deviations, insecurities, the games we play. And it WAS hilarious.
I think I know most of Seinfeld's episodes by heart. At least the two three key phrases from each episode. It was an obsession for a while, and yes I did try George's tactics in several occasions and the results were almost as catastrophic as on TV. I was so proud. Being self destructive was never so much fun (at least not until I tried the Keith Richard's diet)
When she threw that toupee out the window, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I feel like my old self again. Neurotic, paranoid, totally inadequate, completely insecure. It's a pleasure.
Now, I am not the only one who got the Seinfeld bug, as his success showed, but the really funny thing is that by the end of the series there were books, real books, you know, by serious people, explaining the existentialist philosophy of Seinfeld and analyzing each of the characters as some sort of base form for different ways to look at the world as though they were at least four Taoist masters creating a Sienfeldism Zen school of thought.
