This post's title is all sorts of genius!

Two follow-up questions:

1) What is up with that?
2) Is he sure it's spinach in those brownies?


Seinfeld seems to have mischaracterized the author's reaction for a cheap laugh. Here's the excerpt from the New York Times article from Oct 19:

''The Sneaky Chef'' by Missy Chase Lapine, who is not a celebrity, also suggests that parents purée healthy foods like spinach and sweet potatoes and hide them in childhood favorites like macaroni and cheese or brownies. A week from Sunday it will be No. 9 on the paperback Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous list.

It turns out that Ms. Lapine, a former publisher of Eating Well magazine, had submitted her 139-page proposal for ''The Sneaky Chef,'' complete with 42 recipes, to HarperCollins twice -- once in February 2006 without an agent and again in May last year, the second time represented by an agent. Both times she was rejected. She landed a deal with Running Press in June 2006, the same month that Collins won an auction to publish Ms. Seinfeld's book.

''Honestly I can't speculate, and I'm not going to accuse anyone of anything,'' Ms. Lapine said. ''I suppose it's possible it's a coincidence.''

To Seinfeld, that's her "wacko moment."

What an asshole he is.
