    Default (OT) Happy Festivus, the holiday for the rest of us

    Once again it's time for Festivus, the holiday originated on a Seinfeld episode from 1997:

    Yes, Happy Festivus !

    While my feats of strength may not be what they once were, I always appreciate the airing of the grievances. :)

    Man, Seinfeld has become iconic. So many classic phrases from that show, such as "festivus" , airing of grievances, "not that there is anything wrong with that," converting to Judaism for the jokes, I choose not to run, Yada yada yada, was that wrong of me?, just to mention just a few.

    Yes, I know where the various catch phrases came from. Just did not find the show all that entertaining. Saw bits and pieces, mainly clips, on other programs. Wasn't the soup nazi an ongoing theme too....or was that another show I'm only vaguely aware of?

    I've seen whole shows and didn't really care for it much either. I could add more, but there would be no point.
