George Costanza's Favorite Writer Gets Pink Slip
Would you believe they fired Mike Lupica?
George Costanza has to be heartbroken. This is one of my all-time favorite Seinfeld scenes...
Mr. Lippman: Who do you read?
George: I like Mike Lupica.
Mr. Lippman: Mike Lupica?
George: He’s a sports writer for the Daily News. I find him very insightful…
Mr. Lippman: No, no, no. I mean authors.
George: Lot of good ones…lot of good ones. Uh, I-I don’t even want to mention anyone because I’m afraid I’m going to leave somebody out.
Mr. Lippman: Name a couple.
George: W-Who do I like? I like, uh…Art…Vandelay.
Mr. Lippman: Art Vandelay?
George: He’s an obscure writer. Beatnik, from the village.
Mr. Lippman: What’s he written?
George: …Venetian Blinds.
