Cosmo Kramer is a character on the American television sitcom Seinfeld (1989–1998), played by Michael Richards. Kramer is the "wacky neighbor" of main character Jerry Seinfeld. He lives at 129 West 81st Street, New York City, Apartment 5B. Of the series' four central characters, only Kramer has no visible means of support; what few jobs he holds seem to be nothing more than larks. He was once described by Elaine Benes as "a tall, lanky doofus with a birdface and hair like the Bride of Frankenstein". His trademarks include his humorous upright bouffant hairstyle and vintage wardrobe, the combination of which led to his categorization as a 'hipster doofus'; his violent bursts through Jerry's apartment door; and his penchant for nonsensical, percussive bursts of noise to indicate skepticism, agreement, annoyance, and a variety of other inexplicable responses. Kramer appeared in all but two episodes: "The Chinese Restaurant" and "The Pen", in the second and third seasons, respectively.
He is based on Kenny Kramer, a stand up comedian who was the neighbor of Larry David, co-creator of Seinfeld.
Cosmo Kramer was known only as "Kramer" during the show's first five seasons (from 1990 to 1994), though in the pilot, "The Seinfeld Chronicles," he was referred to as Kessler. It was George who found out his unusual first name through an encounter with Kramer's long estranged mother, Babs (played by Sheree North), on the season six episode, "The Switch". Despite this, most characters continued to call him Kramer for the remainder of the show's run although many minor characters did begin referring to him as "Cosmo".
The surname Kramer came from Larry David's neighbor, Kenny Kramer, on whom Kramer is based. The first name Cosmo came from the name of a child who lived on Larry and Kenny's floor in their building.
The real-life KramerEdit
Kramer is based on the real-life Kenny Kramer, a neighbor of co-creator Larry David from New York. At the time of the shooting of the original Seinfeld pilot called "The Seinfeld Chronicles", Kenny Kramer had not yet given consent to use his name, and so Kramer's character was originally "Kessler".
David was hesitant to use Kenny Kramer's real name because he suspected that Kramer would take advantage of this. David's suspicion turned out to be correct; Kenny Kramer created the "Kramer Reality Tour", a New York City bus tour that points out actual locations of events or places featured in Seinfeld. The "Kramer Reality Tour" is itself spoofed on Seinfeld in "The Muffin Tops;" when Kramer's life stories are used by Elaine for the use of various stories in Peterman's biography, he develops a reality bus tour called "The Peterman Reality Tour" and touts himself as "The Real J. Peterman". Kenny Kramer also made both monetary and non-monetary demands on Castle-Rock Entertainment—all of which were met.
In the "backwards episode" of Seinfeld, "The Betrayal", it is explained (in an example of a retcon) that Kramer's original name given in the pilot, "Kessler", is just a misspelling on his mailbox.
Background and familyEdit
Perhaps Kramer's first scheme was running away from home at age 17 and stowing away aboard a steamer headed for Sweden, as he tells two art patrons in "The Letter". It is unknown how he returned to the United States from Sweden, however—or whether the story is even intended to be true.
Kramer never completed high school traditionally. It is learned in "The Barber" that Kramer has a high school equivalency, a GED.
Kramer was estranged for a long period from his mother, Babs Kramer. Unlike George Costanza and Jerry Seinfeld, Kramer's character does not have a well-developed network of family members shown in the sitcom.
Kramer was also in the United States Army for a short while before being discharged (the reasons for which are "classified").
Kramer has stated that his heroes are Mickey Mantle (who is also one of George's heroes) and Bette Midler.
Kramer has many conflicting personality traits. Described in "The Letter" by an art patron as "a loathsome, offensive brute", he is often shallow, callous, and indifferent. On the other hand, he is the closest thing to a nice person in Seinfeld. Though eccentric, Kramer is more-often-than-not caring, friendly and kind-hearted; he often goes out of his way to help total strangers in plight, and tries to get his friends to also help others and to do the right thing even when they don't want him to. These are also the moments where Kramer's more articulate, dramatic, and poetic personality shines through.
Kramer is known for his extreme honesty and, correspondingly, his lack of tact; in "The Nose Job", he tells George's girlfriend that she "needs a nose job". Instead of being horrified, many characters end up thanking Kramer for his candor. Kramer never gets into trouble for it, but his friends often do. He also gets his friends into trouble by talking them into things such as parking illegally in a handicapped space ("The Handicap Spot") or urinating in a parking garage ("The Parking Garage").
Kramer is known for appropriating items from Jerry, most notably food. Jerry's apartment is Kramer's second home (at one point he calls Jerry's phone line one, and his own line two); he has his own key to the apartment, almost never bothers to knock, and even begins to receive phone calls there in "The Pilot, Part 1". It is revealed in "The Betrayal" that this may be due to Jerry's offer upon moving into the building (12 years earlier, about 4 years before the first episode), telling Kramer "We're neighbors. What's mine is yours."
Much of Kramer's lifestyle is "out of date", including his clothing, which is often a size too small or large and years (or decades) out of fashion. He seems to shop at second-hand stores and has no concept of style or taste. Kramer thinks of himself as a very "with-it" individual, up-to-date on everything, but is constantly being shown to be ignorant, uninformed, and foolish. He often drives large, old American sedans, such as a 1973 Chevrolet Impala, or a 1985 Ford LTD. To all this, Kramer is oblivious and he takes no note of other people's opinions of his lifestyle and views.
Kramer's own apartment is sub-let from documentary filmmaker Paul Buchman from Mad About You. Kramer's apartment is the subject of numerous radical experiments in interior design, including "levels" (no furniture) in "The Pony Remark", and a reconstruction of the set of The Merv Griffin Show in "The Merv Griffin Show".
Kramer's signature on the show is entering a room sliding in, much like Art Carney's character in The Honeymooners. This reportedly first became a recurring gag when Richards was late for a cue; trying to save the scene, he burst into the room, much to the delight of the audience. His initial bursts into Jerry's apartment were fairly conventional, and became somewhat more flamboyant or physically comedic as the series progressed. He is also known to be very clumsy, constantly tripping over things and knocking things down.
George Costanza once commented, upon hearing that Kramer had gone to a baseball fantasy camp, that Kramer's whole life was a fantasy camp: "People should plunk down two thousand dollars to live like him for a week: Do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, mooch food off your neighbors, and have sex without dating! That's a fantasy camp!" ("The Visa"). It was also once stated by Jerry that Kramer is an avid CFL (Canadian Football League) fan but does not watch any American (NFL) football.
Kramer also shares a phobia with Frank Costanza. In the episode "The Raincoats", he almost panics when the word mouse is mentioned.
He suffers from coulrophobia—a fear of clowns in "The Opera" "The Gymnast" and "The Slicer".
He has seizures whenever he hears the voice of Mary Hart, co-anchor of the show Entertainment Tonight, "The Good Samaritan" (incidentally, at least one real-world case of so-called 'Mary Hart epilepsy' has been reported in North America).
In the episode "The Betrayal", Kramer's friend FDR (Franklin Delano Romanawski, played by Michael McShane) wishes on his birthday candles that Kramer would drop dead, after Kramer threw a snowball at him. Kramer tried to get 100% anti-drop dead protection for life, but lost after losing a wishbone break.
Kramer is inexplicably popular with both George's and Jerry's parents. (Although this isn't true at first; in "The Handicap Spot" Estelle calls Kramer "trouble" and expresses her dissatisfaction at her son hanging around him.) It is revealed in "The Blood" that he calls the Seinfelds once a week (as he explains to Jerry, "If you called them more often, I wouldn't have to!"). George's parents let Kramer stay at their house in an episode when they are away on a trip. They even let Kramer have a "girl over" (which George explains they never let him do). He even briefly moves into Jerry's parents' retirement community in Florida, where Morty Seinfeld recruits him to run for Condo Board President in an attempt to establish a puppet régime. Kramer even manages to befriend the "Soup Nazi" which seems impossible because of his short temper and his outbursts at anyone who holds up the line.
Of the four main characters, Kramer has the fewest romantic relationships portrayed on-screen. He does not seem to have trouble attracting women (once stating, "I have many associates"), but his relationships often come to an embarrassing end and, like Jerry's, are usually short lived. Some of Kramer's most notable relationships include:
- In "The Conversion", after Kramer attracts the attention of a young Latvian Orthodox nun, he learns from the priests that he has the Kavorka ("lure of the animal", a powerful attraction over women).
- In "The Puffy Shirt", Kramer dates a "low-talker," a woman who speaks quietly.
- In "The Friars Club", Kramer tries to copy Leonardo Da Vinci by only sleeping 20 minutes every four hours, but when he finally falls deeply asleep in his girlfriend's arms, she thinks he is dead, puts him in a sack and dumps him in the Hudson River.
- In "The Non-Fat Yogurt", Kramer's passionate encounter with a lab technician results in the accidental mix up of Rudy Giuliani's blood test.
- In "The Pie", Kramer dates Olive from the Coffee Shop whose super-long nails are the only cure to his itchy back. When he loses his itch and wants to break up with her, he uses a mannequin that looks like Elaine as his pretend new girlfriend.
- In "The Wife", he gets overly-tanned after falling asleep on a tanning bed and then horrifies his African-American girlfriend and her family who think he's doing blackface.
- In "The Maid", his girlfriend moves to downtown Manhattan and Kramer cannot handle the "long-distance relationship".
- In "The Dog", Kramer has a relationship with a woman all of his friends hate.
- In "The Library", Kramer attracts the Librarian/Poet Marian after claiming "she needs a little tenderness, she needs a little Kramer." He eventually falls in love with her poetry, however it doesn't work out because of the adamant library detective, Bookman.
- In "The Soul Mate", Kramer falls for Jerry's girlfriend Pam and with Newman's help tries to win her over. He even gets a vasectomy for her because he finds out she isn't interested in having children (he later states that the procedure was botched, and he's even more potent as a result).
- In "The Money", Kramer dates a woman (played by Sarah Silverman) who has the "jimmy legs" which keep him up at night.
Kramer has on a few occasions taken people under his wing and aggressively protected their interests.
- In "The Chaperone", he becomes the personal coach of Miss Rhode Island at the Miss America pageant. He trains her on poise, walk and even on singing technique.
- In "The Understudy", Kramer becomes a super-protective bodyguard and nurse to an injured Bette Midler after she is knocked over by George at a softball game. He is so protective of her that he even prevents George and Jerry from apologizing to her at the hospital.
- In "The Voice", Kramer gets an intern from New York University (NYU) who is supposed to be working for "Kramerica Industries", but he really ends up "mending chicken wire", "having high tea with a Mr. Newman" and setting up lunch appointments with Jerry at the coffee shop. Darren the intern becomes so loyal to Kramerica that he even continues on as Kramer's assistant after the internship is revoked by the university—but later Kramer announces Darren "is going away for a very long time" after the failed oil ball invention.
- In "The Gum", Kramer takes Lloyd Braun -- who recently was released from a mental institution -- under his wing and helps him get back on track by letting him help in the restoration of the Alex Theatre.
- In "The Chinese Woman", Kramer becomes especially protective of Elaine's friend Noreen.
- However in "The Fatigues", the role is reversed when Kramer has no cooking skills and needed Frank Costanza to help cook Jewish food for his community.
Bizarre beliefs and philosophiesEdit
Kramer is known to embrace opposite and reverse philosophies and to reject acceptable social behaviors or established facts. For example, he insists in "The Jimmy" that you have to eat before undergoing surgery because "you need your strength", even though patients are told not to eat before an operation because doing so can interfere with anaesthesia.
- In "The Heart Attack", Kramer reveals he doesn't believe in being treated at hospitals when he warns George that his friend Bob Sacamano went in for a hernia operation which was botched and now he speaks in a falsetto voice. Because of this he recommends for George to opt for a holistic healer. When George finds out how much cheaper it is, he goes with Kramer's advice, which he later regrets.
- In "The Opera", Kramer wears casual clothes to an upscale opera, commenting that "People do dress up when they go to the opera; I don't." Kramer also admits that he suffers from coulrophobia (fear of clowns). Kramer also expresses his belief that Italian people used to sing to each other, but they stopped because 'they couldn't keep up, they got tired'.
- In "The Strike", Kramer is enthusiastically eager to celebrate Festivus, a holiday ("for the rest of us") created by Frank Costanza.
- In "The Andrea Doria", when he developed a severe cough; Kramer refused to see a doctor, after he claims they botched his vasectomy, preferring instead to be treated by a veterinarian. His rationale is that veterinarians are superior physicians because they are expected to care for multiple species.
- In "The Foundation", Kramer inspires a despondent Elaine to have greater self-confidence with the "Katra" philosophy that she thinks he learned in his karate class. As it turns out, "Katra" is a Vulcan trait that Kramer saw in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and in actuality, Kramer is the only adult in a karate class full of children.
- In "The Sponge", Kramer adamantly refuses to wear a ribbon at an AIDS walk for charity, causing fury (and eventually physical violence) among his fellow walkers (including two men who stole an armoire he was saving for Elaine in "The Soup Nazi").
- In "The Butter Shave", Kramer finds butter is a better protection for his skin after shaving. His skin feels so good with butter; he takes to spreading it all over his body (which entices Newman's voracious appetite).
- In "The Cafe", Kramer adamantly insists that a time limit on the application of a law is a "statue of limitations". Jerry attempts to correct him, but gives up in the face of Kramer's stubborn ignorance.
- In "The Wallet", Kramer declares that he believes Federal Express should be abolished because it renders homeowners vulnerable to intruders.
- In "The Dinner Party" Kramer tells George that he never takes a wallet with him because it throws his hips "off kilt".
- In "The Lip Reader" Kramer joins the ballboys despite his age. "Thus ends the great ballman experiment" when he knocks over Monica Seles while attempting to retrieve the ball.
Despite the failure of the majority of his schemes and his unwillingness to even apply for a normal job, Kramer always seems to have money when he needs it; in "The Visa", George makes a comment about Kramer "doing nothing" but "falling ass-backwards into money". The only example of this demonstrated on the show was in the episode "The Subway", in which Kramer places a $600 bet on a horse at 30-to-1 odds, which amounts to winning $18,000.
The only steady job Kramer is known to have had was in "The Strike", when he went back to work at H&H Bagels after being on strike for over a decade. His union finally settled the strike when the minimum wage of New York was raised to the hourly rate Kramer had been demanding from his employer (Kramer still felt the strike was a success), and he was re-employed. He only worked there during that one episode before he was fired. During the time he was working at the bagel shop, he went on strike again because of having to work during Festivus, a holiday invented by Frank Costanza.
Kramer has engaged in a variety of short-lived jobs. He worked part-time as a department store Santa before being fired for spreading Communist propaganda to young children "The Race". In "The Bizarro Jerry", he worked at an office where he was not actually employed, describing his daily activities to Jerry as "T.C.B. You know, takin' care of business." His "boss" eventually "fires" him, commenting that his reports resemble work by someone with "no business training at all." In "The Beard", he was paid to be a decoy in a police lineup. A story arc of the fifth season included Kramer's idea for a coffee table book about coffee tables, which was eventually published in "The Fire". His success in that particular endeavor was short-lived, however, because he spit coffee on Kathie Lee Gifford while promoting the book on Live with Regis and Kathie Lee"The Opposite". In The Pick, he became an underwear model for Calvin Klein, which must account for at least some of his income. The biggest boost to Kramer's income would have to be in the episode "The Wizard" when his coffee table book is optioned for a movie by a "big Hollywood so-and-so", earning Kramer enough royalty money to retire to Florida (although he moved back to New York almost immediately after a "political scandal" involving going barefoot in the clubhouse cost him the election for condo board president.)
He is compulsive gambler who successfully avoided gambling for several years until "The Diplomat's Club", in which he bet with a wealthy Texan on the arrival and departure times of flights going into New York's LaGuardia Airport. Earlier than that, "The Pony Remark" and "The Subway" still shows that Kramer is a tough gambler.
A struggling (and untalented) actor, Kramer briefly lived in Los Angeles, where he accosted Fred Savage, appeared in a cameo on Murphy Brown, and was a suspect in a string of serial killings"The Keys", "The Trip". Back in New York, Kramer worked as a stand-in on a soap opera with his friend Mickey Abbott in "The Stand In", and was given a one-line part in a Woody Allen movie in "The Alternate Side" (His line, "These pretzels are making me thirsty", became the show's first catch phrase.), but he is fired before completing his scene. Kramer has worked in various other theater projects, such as acting out illnesses at a[medical school in "The Burning". He also held a job as Santa Claus at the fictional department store "Coleman's" in "The Race".
In the episode "The Strong Box", Kramer says one of the things in the box is his military discharge. Upon being asked, "You were in the military?", Kramer replies, "Briefly."
Kramer's financial status seems to be contradicted across episodes. For example, in one episode George asks Kramer if he can break a twenty-dollar bill, to which he replies, "I only have hundreds" ("The Mango"). However, in another episode, in which he explains to Jerry that wallets are a nuisance and that he should use a money clip, Kramer advises Jerry to "keep the big bills on the outside" and shows Jerry his own money clip as an example, to which Jerry responds, "That's a five" ("The Reverse Peephole").
Inventions, entrepreneurship, and lawsuitsEdit
Kramer showed an entrepreneurial bent with "Kramerica Industries," for which he devised plans for a pizza place where customers made their own pizza ("Male Unbonding"), a bladder system for tankers that would "put an end to maritime oil spills" ("The Voice"), and a product that would put ketchup and mustard in the same bottle.
He also came up with the idea of a beach-scented cologne in "The Pez Dispenser", but a marketing executive for Calvin Klein informed him that the idea was senseless. However, in "The Pick", it is revealed that Klein has produced a cologne called Ocean based on the same idea. When Kramer confronts him about this, his interaction with a Klein executive lands him a photo shoot in connection with the cologne as an underwear model.
In "The Doorman", Kramer and Frank Costanza co-develop a prototype for a brassiere for men called the "bro" or the "mansiere". It's mentioned again in "The Fusilli Jerry" when Frank believes that Kramer used "that move".
In "The Muffin Tops", Kramer cries foul after failing to receive due credit for J. Peterman's book success which was unduly based on Kramer's misadventures. He then confronts Peterman during a book signing, and is kicked out of the event. Kramer then declares himself to be "The Real Peterman" and initiates The Real Peterman Reality Bus Tour, charging customers $37.50 for a tour of his life. On the matter of this tour, Jerry commented that it was "basically $37.50 for a mini 3 Musketeers bar."
Kramer also hatched a scheme to smuggle actual Cubans to the United States to make his beloved outlawed Cuban cigars, only to learn the "Cubans" are actually Dominicans ("The English Patient").
He participates in lawsuits against various people and companies, represented by Jackie Chiles, a parody of Johnnie Cochran. In "The Maestro," he settled one such suit (though he received no monetary compensation) against a coffee company whose beverages were too hot (a reference to the McDonald's coffee case). In "The Abstinence," Kramer sues a tobacco company for the damage its products caused to his appearance, and in "The Caddy," he sued Sue Ellen Mischke for causing a traffic accident that ruined his chances at becoming a professional golfer.
Coffee Table Book about Coffee TablesEdit
A storyline running throughout the fifth season is the development of one of Kramer's few successful ideas. Kramer first thought of the book in "The Cigar Store Indian", although he later claims that he was skiing when he first had the idea. Throughout the season, his quest to get the book published becomes a running gag, and, although Elaine is portrayed as disliking the idea, Pendant Publishing (where Elaine and Kramer's then-girlfriend worked) decides to publish it "The Fire".
In "The Opposite", Kramer goes on Regis and Kathie Lee to promote the book. By accidentally spitting his coffee over Kathie Lee Gifford, his book tour comes to his immediate end. Also in the episode, as a result of a bizarre chain of events, Elaine inadvertently causes the end of Pendant Publishing and therefore the end of Kramer's book. Nervertheless, the book is mentioned later in the episode "The Wizard", and it is revealed that the book was being made into a movie, the money Kramer makes causing him to move to Florida temporarily.
The book itself was full of pictures of celebrities' coffee tables, and even had a pair of foldable wooden legs. He also said that he had plans for a coaster to be built into the cover, and it is unknown if this feature was actually implemented at any point.
Kramer's other inventions and ideasEdit
- A pizza place where you make your own pizza pie. It falters because of a dispute between Kramer and Poppie over whether cucumbers can be pizza toppings. ("The Couch")
- Installing a garbage disposal as the drain in his shower, so that he could prepare vegetables while showering ("The Apology").
- Redoing his entire apartment in imitation wood wallpaper "It's wood, Jerry." ("The Junior Mint").
- Redecorating his apartment with the set of The Merv Griffin Show ("The Merv Griffin Show").
- Adding a screen door outside his apartment front door ("The Serenity Now").
- Using the homeless to pull rickshaws in New York City ("The Bookstore").
- Reversing the peephole in his apartment front door ("The Reverse Peephole").
- Owning his own chicken to obtain fresh eggs. He later discovers that the chicken is really a rooster and trains him to become a cock fighter ("The Little Jerry").
- Saving his blood in a refrigerator ("The Blood").
- Joining Newman who re-attempts an original (and refined) idea by Kramer. Using a mail truck to take cans to a Michigan recycling plant, where the bottle deposit return is worth 10¢, as opposed to New York's 5¢ ("The Bottle Deposit, Part 1" and "Part 2").
- Getting rid of his refrigerator so that he would only eat fresh food ("The Soup").
- Placing oil in a giant rubber bladder to prevent oil spills. However, during the test of the giant ball of oil at Play Now, it falls on the unsuspecting head of Jerry's girlfriend ("The Voice").
- A small statue of Jerry made of fusilli pasta, a macaroni statue of Bette Midler (Macaroni Midler), and a ravioli statue of George (presumably "ravioli George"). All Pasta's "capture the essence" of their respective persona. ("The Fusilli Jerry", "The Understudy")
- A cologne that smells of the beach, which is eventually taken up by Calvin Klein. ("The Pez Dispenser" and "The Pick")
- Blacking out two of the lanes in a four lane highway to make it more "luxurious." ("The Pothole")
- Reversing the peephole on his apartment door, so other people can see in but he cannot see out. ("The Reverse Peephole")
Like the other three characters, Kramer has pseudonyms he uses in various schemes; H. E. (or A.G.) Pennypacker, Dr. Martin Van Nostrand, and Peter Van Nostrum are the most popular. Nostrum means "unverified science of dubious origin" or "a questionable scheme".
Under the name "H. E. Pennypacker" in "The Puerto Rican Day", Kramer poses as a buyer interested in an apartment in order to use its bathroom. Kramer also appeared as H. E. Pennypacker to help Elaine get revenge on a store, Putumayo, by repricing all the merchandise in the store with a pricing gun ("The Millennium").
As Dr. Martin von Nostrand, Kramer tried to get Elaine's medical chart to erase the negative comments her doctor had made in "The Package". He also used the von Nostrand alias in the episode "The Slicer", posing as a dermatologist for a cancer screening at Kruger. Kruger later recognised him as Dr. von Nostrand in "The Strike". Kramer used the name Martin von Nostrand (without the "doctor" prefix) while auditioning for the role of himself on the show Jerry in "The Pilot, Part 1". Kramer posed as Professor Peter von Nostrand in "The Nose Job" in order to retrieve his jacket from another man's apartment.
Kramer was also referred to as "Assman" in reference to the license plate the state of New York accidentally gave him in "The Fusilli Jerry". Occasionally, he is called "the K-Man" ("The Barber"), ("The Bizarro Jerry"), ("The Busboy"), and ("The Soup Nazi").
A derogatory designation for Kramer has been "hipster doofus", a moniker once assigned to him by a woman in a wheelchair he once dated in the episode "The Handicap Spot", and occasionally directed at him by Elaine, as in "The Glasses". The nickname was first used in a newspaper review of Seinfeld. There have been some interpretations of the term "hipster doofus" that suggest Kramer to be "a flamboyant and sophisticated unfortunate", "a person who is learned on the ways of the world, but not learned or aware of his own physicality", as well as "the world's roughest prototype of the metrosexual male".
Kramer appears as a baby in the Muppets Tonight sketch Seinfeld Babies. When the tapes for Muppet Babies and Seinfeld are mixed up, the characters of Seinfeld are transformed into infant puppets. In a parody of the episode "The Contest", the babies hold a contest to see who can go the longest without needing their diapers changed. Baby Kramer is the first to lose the challenge.
Omega V: RedemptionEdit
Kramer appeared in Omega V: Redemption on the planet Earth where he found himself sneaking on the same ship as the party and ended up going to other planets with them. He served as comic relief, and at the end of Omega V he remained on the Diplo while the party headed to the final battle.
During his run, he mistook numerous characters for Seinfeld characters, include:
While on Spira, Kramer caused quite the stir in a stadium:
Kramer got on the loud speakers. Apparently Kramer had gotten into a verbal fight with a member of ther crowd. "Shut up, 50 years ago, we'd have had you upside down with a fucking fork up your ass. You can talk. You can talk. You can talk. You brain dead mother fucker!. Throw his ass out, he's a *****. He's a *****. He's a *****!!!" screamed Kramer.
"Oh my god!" said a woman in the crowd.
"A *****, look there's a *****! Woooo. Ohhh. Alright you see. It shocks you. You see what lay buried beneath you stupid mother fuckers!!!" yelled Kramer.
"That was uncalled for." said the man arguing with Kramer.
"What was uncalled for? It's uncalled for you to interrupt us, you cheap mother fucker! You guys have been talking, and talking and talking. I don't know? I don't know? I don't know?" said Kramer mocking him causing the man to walk away. "Wait a minute where's he going? " asked Kramer.
"That was uncalled for you fucking cracker-ass mother fucker!" replied the man.
"Cracker-ass? You calling me a cracker-ass, *****?" replied Kramer mocking the man.
"You fucking white boy!" retorted the man.
"Are you threatening me?" laughed Kramer as the man stormed out of the stadium.
