What does Jonathan have to say?



It's a Bird, It's a Plane, Is it Seinfeld?

The holy grail of comic books was sold the other day for 1 million bucks.  Yes,  ONE MILLION DOLLARS.  No names are being mentioned for either the buyer or seller.  However, I have a guess on who may have bought it. Superman First IssueFirst, let's talk a little more about the comic itself.  It's the Action Comics with Superman on the front lifting a car.  It's the debut comic for The Man of Steel and originally sold for 10 cents. There are a few copies of this comic, but experts say this copy is one of the best because it is in such fine condition.  Past copies of Action Comics #1 have sold for about $400,000. So who do you think bought it?  I think it might be Jerry Seinfeld.  As you may know, he's a Superman freak.  In fact, in every single episode of Seinfeld he either made reference to The Man of Steel or you could see something Superman related in the background. I know Seinfeld is busy working on his new show The Marriage Ref which is going to fill the black hole formally known as The Jay Leno Show.  But let's be honest, Seinfeld isn't doing that much these days and he's got tons of money.  How could he NOT buy it?  I wonder if when you're rich and have tons of money to burn if you end up buying many many things you do not need.  I've decided to create a list of items I would buy if I had a bottomless wallet: 1) All the uniforms from the 1906, 1917 and 2005 White  Sox World Series Championship Teams 2) James Taylor (I would have him write a new song to wake me up with each morning) 3) Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer (Those are all the cast members of the Simpsons)  They could recreate Simpson episodes in my home. 4) Matt Groening (creator of the Simpsons) to write fresh episodes for me. 5) A clone of me to get up early and do the morning show when I didn't feel like it. 6) Lots of chocolate 7) Health care for everyone 8) 365 pairs of underwear Notice how chocolate for me is higher than health care for the nation.  Sad, but at least health care is above my underwear a day request.
