(ABC)   Judge rules Jerry Seinfeld can legally mock a cookbook author on TV. Why do they call it a cookbook? You don't cook it. And what's the deal with poached eggs? Who stole them? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE???   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 58

Was it his wife's cookbook? Because that thing SUCKED.

1. Marry Jerry Seinfeld
2. Add pureed vegetables to traditional recipes, make it taste like fried ass, and call it healthy eating.
3. Profit!

And who came up with crabapples? They don't look like crabs! Are there fishing boats trawling the Atlantic coast pulling up nets full of crab apples?

I was a fan of the guy until his appearance on Letterman. When he went on his "sick nut" rant, it was just too over the top. You have more money than you'll ever spend, even if your wife didn't plagiarize it, let the courts decide it and STFU.

He also built a baseball park on his property on Long Island after he was turned down for the permit. He's another one of those "laws don't apply to the rich" people.

Jerry's whole marriage to his current wife was shady as hell. She was on her honeymoon with her first husband when he started seeing her and then she immediately left him for Jerry. I like Jerry and always dug his show but that was shady as all get out on his part to do that. I wouldn't be surprised if his wife stole the cookbook idea.

She was accused of and sued over stealing it if I remember right. My wife brought it home one day, and I couldn't believe how terrible it was. Mrs. Seinfeld should have sued whoever she stole it from.

csb warning...


I recently had Mr. Seinfeld over for a meeting at my office. On his way in he stopped off to use the bathroom in the hallway and found it locked.

He then entered my office and proceed to do a three minute monologue on "what's the deal with office building bathrooms being locked..."

This routine was just for me and my six person staff. It was hysterical. The guy just can't turn it off.

It was like having Eric Clapton play in your living room.

I used to feel the same way. I would watch his show and turn it off at the end with the standup bit over the credits and would turn off Carson if he was a guest.

Then I got tickets to see him live as a a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and had to fake enthusiasm. (They were from my mom.) It turned out to be the best show I had ever been to.

His ranting on and on about the other author just makes me more inclined to think his wife did steal it. Something about protesting too much. Not that I'd buy either book; if I can't make my kids eat vegetables without sneaking them into brownies, I'd need more help than the likes of Mrs. Seinfeld can offer.

A woman submits her book to a publishing house. They tell her they like it and will publish it. Suddenly, they tell her "deal's off." Few months later,SAME publishing house puts out Jerry's wife's book that contains several recipies that are identical to the letter --right down to the order of listed ingredients-- of woman's book.

Next, massive legal team for Seinfeld beats little nobody author in court like a red-headed stepchild.

Next, Seinfeld gloats on TV about it and calls her names.

And now, for your reading and viewing pleasure, the script for the unfilmed Seinfeld episode "meatship":

In early 1994, Seinfeld was at the height of its popularity. Co-creator Larry David, known for his dark sense of humor, wrote a surrealist episode which would have ran as episode 76 in late 1993. The episode was never filmed because the cast felt it was too frightening for prime time television, and Jason Alexander objected to putting raw meat in his mouth. What follows are the surviving excerpts from the script.

In my previous comment I was going to mention how I found his show to be unfunny and cringe-inducing, but I decided not to be "that guy". Of course I don't like The Office either, so it must just be something about that particular brand of humor.

I don't know much about Seinfeld, but that's what it sounded like to me too. I never even saw the show until it was off the air.....now I've seen a couple of episodes, and I don't get it. THAT is the funniest series of all time? Someone told me, Oh, you have to live in a big city to get it, but ...... well, I just don't get it.

Something about him strikes me as an arrogant fark, too.

Jerry and his wife were meant to be with each other. She steals cooking book, he steals movie idea (Bee Movie).

Two Swedish movie students develops an idea for an animated movie about bees, called Beebylon. They show their script, rendered stills and a demo reel to Dreamworks which aren't interested. Then two years later, DW announces that they're making a CG movie about bees. Some scenes are very similar to scenes in the Beebylon demo. The students tried to sue, but the lawyers were scared away by Dreamworks.

I read the first few lines of that script and knew it was fake since they mention Plavix, which wasn't introduced until 1997, 3 years after this script was supposedly to have been written. Remember kids, the first rule to writing a fake script is continuity.

It grinds me when people blame the other man/woman when a marriage is destroyed by infidelity. Jerry's wife is the homewrecker. She's the one who messed up the relationship, not Jerry.

Unless Seinfeld put a gun to her head and forced her under the threat of death to cheat on her new husband with him, she made that choice all by herself.
