For Cosmo Kramer, Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment was like a personal—and free—grocery store.

As Jerry Seinfeld prepares for the fifth season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he’s enlisted the help of an old neighbor to boost the show and its host Crackle’s presence.
Finally, Seinfeld’s puffy shirt makes an appearance in a place that makes sense—the ice skating rink.
Seinfeld certainly had its provocative moments (see: “sponge-worthy”). So it’s hard to imagine that there was any subject too controversial for the hit comedy. But one topic did manage to cross the line: guns.
The cast and crew refused to shoot what would have been the show’s ninth episode, “The Bet.” The second season episode, written by Borat director Larry Charles, followed the friends making a bet whether or not Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Elaine Benes would purchase a gun for protection. The narrative was inspired by a firearm purchase made by Seinfeld writer Elaine Pope.
Charles told Screen Crush that the episode came at a time when more and more women were seeking out the weapons, explaining, “I think it was as simple as me wondering, ‘What if Elaine bought a gun?’” READ FULL STORY
Finding yourself using the balding old man emoji to incorporate George Constanza into text conversations? You won’t have to much longer: The guys behind the Seinfeld Current Day Twitter account will soon be debuting a set of 42 Seinfeld emoji, including pictographs of Constanza, Seinfeld, and the rest of the gang—plus Junior Mints, of course.
Sure, the World Cup has produced a number of vivid and unusual dances from players on the field. But as the Brooklyn Cyclones’ Seinfeld-themed baseball game proved on Saturday, not even elite footballers can kick like Elaine Benes.
In honor of the sitcom’s 25th anniversary yesterday, the New York Mets-affiliated minor league team treated the city to Salute to Seinfeld Night, which featured players warming up in puffy shirts, visits from both the Soup Nazi actor and the real Kramer, and an appropriately absurd Elaine Dancing Contest.

Ahh, nostalgia. Between VH1’s I Love the 2000s and National Geographic’s The ’90s: The Last Great Decade?, it appears that there’s been a whole lot of looking back at our fairly recent history. But how do people really feel about the turn of the century?
Through a survey, Nat Geo gauged America’s attitudes toward the ’90s specifically, asking whether it really was “The Last Great Decade.” Here are the pop culture results: READ FULL STORY
Oh, so that’s where they keep the Constitution: on Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s naked back.
The Veep star, sans clothes, covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone. In the accompanying interview, the multiple Emmy winner chats with the magazine about how she got from Seinfeld to HBO, how she deals with the industry’s sexism — “I just pay it no nevermind and say, ‘Get out of my way'” — and her meeting with real-life vice president Joe Biden: “I loved that dinner. There was no cynicism, just a very earnest jubilation about being there.”
Check out Louis-Dreyfus’s interview with Rolling Stone when the issue hits newsstands Friday, April 11.
Curiouser and curiouser!
When the image above hit the Internet — and Jerry Seinfeld himself alluded to a “big, huge, gigantic” project he recently wrote with Larry David in his January 6 Reddit AMA — the rumor mill began to churn wildly. Clearly, he and Jason Alexander were reuniting at Manhattan’s Tom’s Diner for a Seinfeld-themed Super Bowl commercial. Or maybe an episode of Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” though that wouldn’t necessarily explain the whole Larry David angle.
The truth? Seinfeld says there is some sort of Seinfeld reunion on the horizon… though he denies it’s either a big game ad or a webisode.
“It’s neither,” he told the hosts of a local New York radio show Thursday — before adding a mysterious addendum: “But, it is not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”
Oh, okay, that clears everything up!
Following his barely there explanation, Seinfeld’s interviewers did get him to spill a few more tiny details about the project. So here’s what we do know: It’s some sort of “shortish-form,” “one-and-done” video. Alexander is, indeed, playing George Costanza. Filming took place in more than one location, though not at Seinfeld’s Upper West Side apartment. Other Seinfeld characters are involved, as is Larry David, though David doesn’t appear on film. And Seinfeld assures that we’ll get to see the result “very, very soon.”
