Quote of the day: JOKES

August 20, 2018


Let’s say that we’re sending another Voyager out into space, and you get to choose the one joke we include on the golden record to represent comedy to the aliens. What joke would you pick? I would put in Rodney Dangerfield’s joke: “I was making love with my wife, and she had a faraway look in her eyes, and I said, ‘Darling, is there someone else?’ and she said, ‘There must be.’ ” That’s as perfect a joke as I can imagine.

–Jerry Seinfeld, interviewed by Dan Amira in the New York Times Magazine
