You say a lot of funny things my little bunny, and I almost always laugh, but that's not really funny

I heard this while eating lunch yesterday:

Girl: I don't really get why everyone thought Seinfeld was so funny.

Guy: That's because it's dry humor. No offense, but usually only intelligent people get that.

Girl: Oh. Okay.

I appreciate Seinfeld more now than I did before it went off the air. Maybe it's because I'm older? Maybe it's because I see a lot of my personality in George's personality. That guy is shameless. And I like it.

My ten year old nephew thinks it's funny, but I didn't "get" it at first either. Of course, I am surprised at how many Seinfeld references I can make in a week.

I'll be honest that when it was on, some of the boys that I couldn't stand at all thought it was funny, so I didn't give it a chance. I didn't fully appreciate it, until i started watching it as re-runs. It's a lot of fun to quote, and I like to think that I'm intelligent. :)

This question has been the subject of serious academic research. A few findings:

1) The reason Seinfeld wasn't cancelled when it's ratings were low was because the demographic profile of it's limited viewership was upscale and well educated.

2) During the long stretch that Seinfeld had high-ratings, it's viewership among Obamanation Core Voters was dismal. UPN's entire line-up was more popular.

3) A large part of the audience stopped viewing when Jerry Seinfeld did his short monologue at the end of the show. So, they stopped ending the show that way after reading the study.

I loved Seinfeld and his observations on the inane little things we all do every day without even realising why.

Did that poor girl really not realise she had just been insulted, albeit in an apologetic kind of way?

I've never thought of Seinfeld as dry. I thought it was blatantly ridiculous and overdramatic. And hilarious.

The main reason people don't think it's funny now is that they have all of the jokes memorized.

The Jerk Store called, they're out of you!

Who cares, you're their all-time best-seller!
