THEY HIRED THE HOMELESS MAN?
Okay, I admit it. Though I went into it kicking and screaming, it didn't take long for me to get sucked into the lives of those "krazy" Kardashians. I've laughed with them and laughed at them. Theirs is a world filled sex tape scandals, Playboy photo shoots, weekend trips to Vegas and even jumping on the celebrity philanthropy bandwagon. We all remember the episode in which Kourtney and Khloe, the notably less famous sisters of the Kardashian "klan" bring Shorty, the lovable homeless man, home to Mom and Pop. While I couldn't help but cringe over the details of their attempt in humanitarianism, it seemed imposible to ignore the truth: What those girls lack in brain cells, they make up for with an oversized heart... or something like that.
However, I was recently watching an episode of Seinfeld entitled "The Beard." In the last few seconds of the show, Kramer is standing in a police line-up and who do I see standing directly to his right? "OH MY GOD, THAT'S THE HOMELESS MAN FROM THE KARDASHIANS." There is not a trace of doubt in my mind that the man standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Kramer was the infamous Shorty, himself.
Coincidence? Well, I guess it is possible that the producers of Seinfeld cast a real homeless man as an extra and that same homeless man just happened to trek all the way to California on his own accord only to inadvertantly end up in front of the cameras once again. Yeah, right. If this man was lucky enough to have things work out so well for him he wouldn't be homeless in the first place, now would he? Obviously the makers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, or the family members themselves, hired him.
Well, I've been keeping up with the Kardashians, but I'm also keeping up with my old friends Jerry and the gang. They can't get anything past me.
"And what's the lesson we learned today, girls? It doesn't pay to pay a man to be homeless just to make us seem nicer than we really are."
