Saint Anthony (detail)
Kramer skitters into Jerry’s apartment one day, his spinneret weaving strands of silk out of his control. He tries to get settled in a chair, but feels very uncomfortable. Ultimately, he’s only able to calm down when he’s settled in a dark corner of the ceiling. “Why are you like Bizarro Spiderman?” Jerry asks. “Well,” Kramer replies through his mandibles, “I bit a radioactive spider.” After coming down with terrible insomnia, George finds that the only way he can drift off to sleep each night is if he lies down in a cold, closed coffin, imagining a world without him. Elaine convinces Puddy that they should bring a third person into the bedroom, as it will unite them through a common enemy.
I was in line behind this guy at the grocery store…….
He was buying a rotisserie chicken and a carton of 18 eggs.
I had to ask him: “What comes first, the chicken or the eggs?”
He responded with a blank stare.
The cashier loved it.
Some people you wonder if they live in a more beautiful world than you do, or if the eye itself is enchanted. Either can be the case. To the point, a reblog is a Yes. But sometimes it is a kind of orgasm. We are all capable of small assents, but from time to time the crowd must be silenced and the image brought hand to hand to the front of the stage to say, “Look at this, and become consonant with the totality. Here lies a canyon of humanity, all the cosmos reflected in a tiny mirror. This is what the eyes are for.”
