The Seinfeld Reunion Show, 2027

Seinfeld Reunion Show, 2027


We can only marvel at this virtuosic stunt from comic Frank Caliendo: he flawlessly acts out a promo for a fictitious Seinfeld 2027 reunion show (with sly political overtones) by playing every single character himself. It goes a long way that he already looks like a clone of Jason Alexander and Newman. Wisely, he doesn't include Kramer's Laugh Factory material. (by Rich Bailey)

Reviving an ancient practice, churches are exposing sinners and shunning those who won't repent.

Political Limericks

Rudy Giuliani

There once was the mayor called Rudy
Who went to Long Island for booty
The taxpayers paid
So that he could get laid
Did 9/11 come before Judy?

Barack Obama

There once was a man named Obama
Who avoided political drama.
But when Clintonites spoke
Claiming King was a joke,
Obama responded, "Yo mama!"


Mike Huckabee

Mr. Huck believes God’s the solution
And claims that there’s no Evolution.
It could be he’s right
God said “Let there be light,”
But he didn’t write the damn Constitution.


Fred Thompson:

Here is the candidate Fred
And these are the words that he said
"I want Law and Order
so I'm closing the border
If you want me, I'll be in my bed."
