Julia Luis-Dreyfus?

If that's a question, the answer is 12, but not all at once.

Signed, Julia

I believe I have seen every episode of Seinfeld except for the one Costanza's girlfriend died licking her wedding envelopes.

This is my tragedy.

MadisonMan said...

How can you comment when you can't see the typo?

KLDAVIS said...

My Google-fu is strong today.

Here's the article the quote came from.

We haven't seen a typo that unfortunate since George Costanza was convinced the Moops invaded Spain in the 8th century.

Convinced? umm no, watch the episode

MadisonMan said...

I did a google search on the Professor's quote, and all I got were references back to this page!

It's amazing to me that we've fallen from Seinfeld to The Office, a pathetic competitor. Oh, America, is that really you?

Seinfeld will be revered thousands of years from now.

The Moops the Moops are moopy
Because they lost the fair Castile,
Kicked out by Ferdinand the loopy
To cool their heels in a hell real
Called Mopoopy.

I'm confused. The video shows the Moops scene. The "Ha" link takes you to a search of the Web related to the Moops scene. Is there something else I'm supposed to be relating this to?

If I feel like an idiot in a few minutes, I reserve the right to delete this post.

KL found it. I figure Althouse, like the good law professor she is, did not want to spoonfeed us.

Hollywood was praising itself again with its little star thing they do on their streets, like they are little saints or something.

And someone fucked up Dreyfus's name.

All in all, no one seemed to really give a crap, and they used a sticker to cover it up while the corrected chunk of sidewalk was being made.

I have every intention of getting some stickers to replicate the error next time I am in LA.

I rely on my wife for showbiz gossip updates. I waste enough time on the web reading about politics, baseball and science.

I do not care one whit for Julia-Luigi Dreyfus.

Well played, Althouse!

Would it be overly anal to point out that it was the Umayyads and not the Moors that conquered Spain in the 8th C.?

If so, please ignore this post.

Funnier Larry David typo:

Devoted sister, beloved *unt.

Ann Althouse said...

Sorry I screwed up the link.

Fixed now.

A post about a mistake... and it contains a mistake. At least it was about mistakes being funny and I wasn't lambasting someone for a mistake...

As my whimsy leads me.. said...

Are those her feet? Oh my goodness! Why wear expensive shoes and show off feet that look like that? Stockings are in order.

Slow Joe said...

toy, if you are as hot as this lady is when you're really old like this lady is, then maybe you can condemn her public appearance.

She's like 50 or something. That she isn't completely hideous is truly exceptional. And the key is probably her happiness. Part of being happy is wearing stuff you like.

I could offer another example. Look at Althouse bloggingheads videos from before she got married recently, and compare to the videos more recently. It's like she's ten years younger.

Just think what would happen if they mispell Rahm Emanuel's name.

sydney said...

I thought the feet needed stockings, too.

As my whimsy leads me.. said...

Sydney, thank you.

Slow Joe, I'm not condemning her, just the practice of wearing dress shoes without stockings, especially for middle aged women. She is quite pretty, but her feet are not. Why do women want the friction of shoes on their feet, and why do they want their shoes to get so smelly? (Same goes for men who go sockless.) Sandals are the exception.
And what do you mean, "she's really old"? She's 49. That's not old. Middle aged women are rarely hideous.

It's for the best that you take most of what I say as some kind of joke about how outraged people seem to be on here. But half the time I'm earnest. It's nice because I can laugh it off when I really got too irritated with some jackass.

I thought her feet looked nasty, actually, when I saw the picture you must have been referencing. I think women's shoes are disgusting looking when they try to be pretty. I also think walbog beetles are in control of the matrix.

What is it with lawyers and Seinfeld?
