First Episode of Seinfeld Airs - 1989

Thursday, July 5, 2007

The Emmy Award-winning sitcom Seinfeld originally aired on NBC from July 5, 1989, to May 14, 1998, running a total of nine seasons. Many of its catchphrases have entered into the pop culture lexicon. The show was the most popular sitcom of the 1990s, leading the Nielsen Ratings in its sixth and ninth seasons.

The series was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, with the latter starring as an eponymous, fictionalized version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment block on New York City's Upper West Side, the show features a host of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, including George Costanza (Jason Alexander), Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards). Seinfeld was largely co-written by David and Seinfeld.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels "Communist Manifesto" published - 1848

Wednesday, July 4, 2007

On the 4th of July 1848 the "Communist Manifesto" was published by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

This is also a big day for America too, with The Declaration of Independance signing in 1776.

So in honour of the two ironically connected events, I've found a video of your stereotypical "good ole American apple pie" housewive reading the entire text of The Communist Manifesto! :)
