Even more indicative of my old age is the fact that the last episode of Archie's "All In The Family" aired FORTY years ago.

I wasn't impacted at all by Seinfeld and didn't even like him. But, Archie and Barney helped raise me and mold my outlook on life.

Keep Laughing Stupid said...

Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld did a lot of damage to society by making their personal neurotic and degenerate behavior seem funny and acceptable instead of abhorrent and repugnant.

The whole point is that we laughed at their abhorrent and neurotic behavior. No one with any sense modeled their interpersonal relationships after these losers. Saying Seinfeld damaged society is like saying MAD Magazine was responsible for the demise of patriotism.

Interesting thought.

I think Dave Chapelle May have done the same thing with race relations.

Too bad seinfeld refuses to do his standup comedy tours on college campuses due to snowflakes being offended by every joke. Can you imagine Richard Pryor or Sanford & sons in today's era. Even Eddie Murphy. SNL would never allow any of these great comedians set foot on there shows anymore.

I thought about playing Bicentennial ******* Thursday.

It is all going to end very badly for the snowflakes.

I believe lightening up got us to the low point we are living at today. You keep slipping down the slippery slope of dignity you eventually end up swimming in the cesspool. Finally you come to accept wallowing in the cesspool as normal. That's where we are today.

Saying lighten up is just your coping mechanism. Everyone can tell something this nation is terribly sick but most have been conditioned to just accept it, ir ignore it. Worse it is just making a joke. Just laugh like a careless fool!

11:27 I think it was Elaine’s dancing that was the real problem

Thirty years of Seinfeld is merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it's not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; Funny? No such thing.

Seinfeld was a great show if you're homosexual or enjoyed cheap wine and popcorn. Kingfish won't allow alternate opinions. Then there's that.

Seinfeld was homosexual. It's been forty years since the concluding episode of Archie Bunker. That's what's important. Bunker spoke to the reality of society. Seinfeld was a comedic clown. But, Who would expect that Kingfish might recognize the reality of that when he can celebrate funny children at a bar acting silly?

I didn't watch it because it was an awful show.

Well I liked it is was funny. Granted it was a bit edgy for the time but at least they offended everyone. Today I mafraid to open the door for someone, but I do it anyway. If Senfield offended you how in the hell do you leave the house today.

The problem with the show is that comfort dogs and safe spaces hadn't been invented yet, nor had the word "snowflake" been coined yet.

That's the real tragedy with Seinfeld.

Through The Prism of Reality said...

8:43 - Actually, Seinfeld served as a 'safe place' and 'comfort zone' for titty-babies, Gilligan look-alikes, social science majors and assorted Episcopalians.

Sadly, that show taught them that their affliction was normal. Most of those viewers are now either teaching at places like Millsaps, enrolled in on-line PhD classes, working for non-profits or wondering what the hell to do with a journalism major.

And their hero is no longer Seinfeld. Now it's AOC.

6:53...Mad Magazine did for reverence and respect what Bill Clinton did for the image of the White House. The magazine may not have destroyed patriotism, but it taught two generations that it's normal to be disrespectful and pick/flip boogers in public.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
