Seinfeld on How to Tell a Joke

From our senior editor Trent Gilliss’ Tumblr:

“In my world, the wronger something feels the righter it is. So too waste this much time on something this stupid… that felt good to me. “

A superb five-minute short on how Jerry Seinfeld writes a joke from The New York Times.

Seinfeld’s take on wasting time might just be the polar opposite advice given by Jon Kabat-Zinn in our podcast for this week.
