"Larry Eats A Pancake" - That's the title of the first episode of Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which features a 1952 Volkswagen Beetle and long-time Seinfeld friend, Larry David. The web series can be seen on the website ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com.
The Bug is beautifully restored and there are lots of shots of it looking out of place on the roads of Los Angeles throughout the 13-minute video. Seinfeld sums up the 25-horsepower car perfectly, "And if like me, you believe true humility is always in short supply, this is the car for you."
There's also a funny bit when Seinfeld pulls up next to a Bugatti Veyron and points out both are made by Volkswagen.
Computerworld - NBC's fall season television lineup includes a new show called Outsourced, with a plot line aimed at the heart of workplace angst, the offshoring of jobs.
Outsourced sets its stage quickly. The main character, Todd, who is played by actor Ben Rappaport, has taken a job as a call center manager at Mid American Novelties but arrives, on his first day, to an empty office.
This isn't a Dateline special about outsourcing -- it's a comedy. Its workplace plot line may be familiar, particularly if you've seen the 2006 movie Outsourced, but it is nonetheless a show about outsourcing, and questions will abound.
