Enough Already


Jerry Seinfeld is dressed as a bee during a publicity stunt for the film "Bee Movie." Why can't Jerry just go away. I never thought the TV show Seinfeld was funny, I never understood why people flocked over him like he was God's gift to comedy, I just don't get Seinfeld! He is so annoying, I hate his grating, whiny voice. Am I the only person that feels this way???

No your not. I've never heard of him and I hate the fucker already - must stop making instant judgements about people.

So glad you agree! Grown men posing as insects is NOT funny!

Seinfeld always kinda "bugged" me...

You knew someone had to say it ;)

Hammer:
I am glad you said it first!

Amen sister!! You're the first person I met who thinks that Seinfeld is not God's gift to comedy! I found his show only mildly amusing. Actually, I'm mildly amused about anything that is actually boring.

You must be easy to keep entertained!

I think the bee costume is an improvement

I wouldn't have said he was ever god's gift to anything, but I did kind of get into the TV show -- it was a strange animal and with enough viewing I did like it.
Dressing as a bee is just bad PR, like they can't think of anything cleverer to promote it.

At least that way it hides how big his head is!

Fever Dog:
I know, it is so cheesy!

The show was overrated--but that is just because some people think that the show was "God's Gift to Humanity."

One aspect of the show that never gets discussed is how cruel it was. I mean, just an example off the top of my head, there was a lot of throwing stuff out windows on top of an innocent person's head. Or throwing a guy's toupee out the window. I'm not sure making fun of a guy in a toupee is funny. I mean, it's "Three Stooges"-funny, or "Vaudeville"-funny, but it is not "Post Milton Berle/Cerebral Funny." I mean, it is not "Doctorate Degree" funny like jokes about how kosher wine tastes bad on "Frasier." Or jokes about "projecting your neurosis."

Or "Dennis Miller"/"I have to think about that reference"-funny.
And oh yeah--stealing from a blind guy; I am just cracking up here.

And the show portrayed Jerry as the "Stud of the Universe" who gets laid with a different good looking chick every week.

In real life, even though he has a bajillion dollar home in the Hamptons, he can really only hit on another guy's wife when they are on the same plane ride.

All in all, I give bonus points for, "for free on television." "Seinfeld" and "Sex and the City" just barely make it under the radar considering this.

Carrie is sort of like Jerry with no Y-chromosome, now that I think about it--both are fugly as hell and not that funny, but manage to shag the best looking people in New York. Hmmmmm....
