I can’t wait for this exchange to be re-imagined on “Robot Chicken.” I wonder where they’ll find the Seinfeld and Larry King action figures?

Jerry Seinfeld is getting on my nerves; Firstly,I never, at any time found him to posess any talent whatsoever; Funny? I think not.Obnoxious self-centered attitude?A+. A very Lucky Boychick? You Betcha! For someone who backed into a TV series that literally was based on nothing whatsoever, he surrounded himself with fabulous players-all talented-the MOST genuinely gifted-NJ's Jason Alexander..He ripped his audience off with the gaul of the horrible last episode of the series-- He seems like the kinda of guy that you never could take for more than 5 minutes-His arrogant attitude and remarks concerning the questionable originality of his wifes supposed original recipes was the final straw for me!And hasn't ANYONE told him that it is the QUEEN BEE that is the worker bee? Jerry is one lucky dude--But who are you REALLY...and what is your life about anyway?So the answer to the question--which is worse? Hands down...JSeinfeld.
