At The New Yorker ...
Mr. Elinoff: So, J. Peterman wants to hire some of our
cartoonists to illustrate your catalog?
Elaine: Well, we're hoping that if perhaps that the catalog
is a little funnier, people won't be so quick to return the clothes ha ha....For
example.. I..I really do....Well I love this one
Elaine shows him the cartoon
Mr. Elinoff: Oh! yeah... That's a rather clever jab at interoffice politics don't you think?
Elaine: Ahan, Ahan....yeah...Euh but, Why is it that the,
that the animals enjoy reading the e-mail?
Mr. Elinoff: Well, Miss Benes. Cartoons are like gossamer
and one doesn't dissect gossamer. heh..hemm..
Elaine: Well you don't have to dissect if you can just tell
me: Why this is supposed to be funny?
Mr. Elinoff: Ha! It's merely a commentary on contemporary
mores. (slides the magazine to her)
Elaine: But, what is the comment? (she slides the magazine
back to him)
Mr. Elinoff: It's a slice of life.
Elaine: No, it isn't.
Mr. Elinoff: Pun?
Elaine: I don't think so.
Mr Elinoff: Vorshtein?
Elaine: That's not a word.....You have no idea what this
means do you?
Mr Elinoff: No.
Elaine: Then why did you print it.
Mr. Elinoff: I liked the kitty.
Elaine: (gets up) You know what? you people should be
ashamed of yourself, you know ya doodle a couple of bears at a cocktail party talking about the stock market. You
think you're doing comedy.
Mr. Elinoff: Actually that's not bad..
Elaine: Oh! really (laughs) well you know..... I have others.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Elaine visits The New Yorker (Seinfeld):
Classic. Laughed even harder when I saw the rerun.

That irreverence, that wit I'd recognize it anywhere. Some charlatan has stolen a Ziggy and passed it off as his own. I can prove it. Quick Elaine, to my archives.

I don't care for Seinfeld. The humor is too New York centric.

A leather cord necklace screams Bon Jovi (pre-hottie haircut), yes, but today's leather and silk cord necklaces, while sturdy and baby-proof, have feminine, tribal flare and can be worn with anything from t-shirts and jeans to date night dresses.

There's something stealthily sexy about a day dress. Perhaps it's because the day dress is so unabashedly feminine. Perhaps it's because the silhouette is so different from the normal uniform of jeans and drapy tees. Perhaps it's because these dresses are cut to celebrate the real female form (you know - the one with curves).
