Oh happy day. A Seinfeld alumnus is in the news again, and this time it's not for a cancelled show. TMZ has a video and some lovely text about the guy who used to be Kramer going off, Wu-Tang style, on some hapless hecklers. Evidently the set wasn't going well for Michael Richards because he had to fire back at the crowd with this doozy:
"Fifty years ago we'd have you upside down with a f***ing fork up your ass."
This sentiment was launched at one of our African American brothers, though one has to question the historical validity of "forking." I've never heard of such a practice. In the video someone can be heard saying "Oh my God" but it's far too late by then. Your God will not save you from Cosmo Kramer you poor bastards.
This just goes back to my old adage, something momma taught me so many years ago "If you're given crazy millions for a sitcom that's gone, and then you've got about five more decades to bum around, you are in for one hell of a non-fun time."
David Schwimmer, beware.
