Funny ICF lawsuit

I smiled when I read that the ICF board is suing RDN director Julian Fell for allegedly defaming their credibility.

I smiled when I read in The NEWS that the Island Corridor Foundation (ICF) board is  suing RDN director Julian Fell for allegedly defaming the credibility of the board and sullying their reputations. Then I laughed out loud.

I was thinking about one of the Seinfeld TV episodes. Remember? Jerry and George were negotiating a contract with NBC executives to write a TV series. The execs suggested changes.

George turned from nervous to arrogant making it clear he wasn’t prepared to change anything and he wasn’t going to put up with anyone compromising his artistic integrity. Suffice to say that ended the meeting and any chances they had with NBC.

Later Jerry, as only he could do, pointed out to George that he was neither artistic nor did he have any integrity — very funny.

I think the ICF has a great future — in television comedy.
