Sweet fancy Moses! Comedian Jerry Seinfeld turned 60 years old today, April 29. I cannot believe he’s 60.

He started celebrating last night with dinner at home, cooked by his wife, Jessica. She posted a photo of chicken parmesan in the works on Instagram, and also a coconut lemon cake “for the Birthday Eve.”:

Okay, but I’ll be honest, I really want to use this post as an excuse to celebrate Seinfeld. Post your favorite Seinfeld quotes and/or moments in the comments! It’s gold, Jerry, it’s gold!!

Celebrity Tweets of the Day: LA Is Weird Edition

I noticed that on Fridayish a lot of celebrities tweeted about something called “Carmageddon,” and I thought it was so weird that a 1997 computer game was suddenly getting this much visibility. So I googled for answers. Turns out the LAPD actually asked celebrities to go on Twitter and announce that the 405 Freeway will be closed all weekend. Yawn.

Speaking of the freeway, this is not Kathy Griffin‘s best look:

Got mah hair did. Ladies, try hangin ur head on the window goin 55MPH

However, this is a very good look for Ricky Gervais:

Gervais, who is too lazy to tweet, sent me this pic of his obscene new toy

In spite of his technical difficulties, I still say Steve Martin is the only old man who should be allowed on Twitter:

Much as I enjoy Sarah Silverman, that was a mysterious retweet off my iPad

As for Sarah Silverman, she is so right about this next thing. She should be a theater critic!

Yeah ok great acting sometimes involves spit strings

I think Yoko Ono is trying to get all existential and meta:

Is anything lopsided in your room? Would you like more lopsided things?

(I read that and snorted, and then I looked up and stared at my off-kilter lampshade, which is always and irretrievably off-kilter, and then I sloooowly realized that maybe Yoko Ono wants me to tilt my entire living room to match my one lampshade.)

Rob Schneider hasn’t made a good movie in ages—or ever?—but his career could be worse. He definitely has his priorities straight:

Happiness is not being on Celebrity Rehab!

P.S. Jerry Seinfeld just joined Twitter. Should we tell him about Google+? Or should we let him wait five years?

This Is Not How You Make Friends

Hey, remember that time that Lady Gaga went to a baseball game, flipped off some people, then got sent to Jerry Seinfeld’s VIP box where she couldn’t bother anyone?  Yeah, Jerry was not to pleased about the situation, and he was not afraid to let people know his thoughts on Lady Gaga during a recent interview:

“You know, you take one ‘a’ off of that, you’ve got gag.”

Zing!  You gotta love Jerry Seinfeld!  Ok, you really, really don’t, but he was all revved up, so he decided to go on about Gaga’s actions.

“I don’t know what these people think or how they promote their careers. I’m older, I’m 56…I’m not one of these ‘all publicity is good’ people. People talk about you need exposure—you could die of exposure. I don’t understand how this is good for her.”

Ok, that’s fair, but then he got a little catty:

“You know I changed my mind, you’re right, this woman’s a jerk. I hate her. I can’t believe they put her in my box that I paid for. You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now? It’s pathetic.”

And to finish, Jerry gave Lady Gaga the classic reverse compliment sandwich:

“Get an act—rhinestone bikinis and giving people the finger? She is talented, I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff.”

Excellent form, Jerry Seinfeld.  It almost makes me wonder how you’ve lost nearly all relevancy.
