Finally the important question of our time is answer: What if Jary Senfild were emoji on i-phone toady?

Jeray himself is: bemused.

"Kragnor"... burninating the countryside?

Ha.. from the post text for a moment there I thought this was going to be about Tarn Adams incorporating blue jeans/ white sneakers/ observational comedy into the next update of Dwarf Fortress! But no.. toady = today.

Still.. I wouldn't have been entirely surprised. WHAT IS THE DEAL, TOADY?

Everyone loves the bangers on the ‘Bing Bong’ show, but which Boing Brother are you?

Heisenberg Dentist bothered me; it should be Seinfeld-era Bryan Cranston, like dis.

Okay, so since I never watched Seinfeld (I think I've seen one episode ever), what's the deal with the atrocious spelling/grammar on the Seinfeld Current Day account?

The Gizmodo link (the first one in this post) sort of answers this question.

Fans of whimsical misspelling will also enjoy Crimershow. Also Frasser and Freints.

I am an unwilling fan of whimsical misspelling. I don't understand why my brain so consistently thinks it's so funny. It's like these guys found a backdoor security vulnerability into my sense of humor, such that even the least funny remark is rendered instantly hilarious with some inspired misspelling (though I quickly get desensitized to it, thankfully).

It's a tricky thing, though; if the spelling is too poor, I spend too much effort on comprehension and it drains all the humor out of it. The misspelling-level of Crimer and Seinfeld2000 is about right, but the Freints and Frasser feeds are both too incomprehensible to be funny to me.

There used to be a street artist in Chicago who would wheatpaste 8x10 photocopies of Kelsey Grammer's face with lightning bolts coming out of his eyes and the word FRAZOR!!! underneath. This was ~10 years ago and I doubt anyone but me and one other Metafilter user still remember them. They were wonderful, and I wish I knew who was behind them and what they've been doing since.

At least now we have bad-pun pop-art/street-art wizard Hanksy.

@seinfeld2000 is so much better and more imaginative than it has any right to be, and even better as a counterpoint to the popularity of the bland, lazy @SeinfeldToday

what's the deal with the atrocious spelling/grammar on the Seinfeld Current Day account?

It's a twitter parody account of a twitter parody account. Copy of a copy. An explanation from the NYTimes profile:

“The idea that there was this second/third order parody going on seemed really pleasing and fun,” Mr. Barr wrote. “Particularly the use of language, almost as though through the many layers of parody the voice itself has become sort of ‘degraded,’ as with multiple photocopies or faxes, say.”

and

“Inherently, it’s also criticism of SeinfeldToday, because their ideas were so timely and topical that I was sort of trying to do a heightened version,” Mr. Richards said. “It wasn’t about being clever or trying to respond to current events. It was about flooding Twitter with a warped version.”
