Is there porn openly on Seinfeld’s bookshelf?

Rug Burn? Desire? A tape with three XXXs on it? Those are the labels on Jerry’s VHS tapes.

What is Jerry NOT hiding on his bookshelf on Seinfeld?

Johnny Mack with your daily comedy news today. Well, hopefully I’m in Hawaii or took a day off or something. This is mostly a rerun with this new, fresh open here at the top. So what I’m going to play for you is an episode from year one of this podcast, when a lot fewer people listened, the origin here is I was watching Seinfeld one day and I looked at Jerry’s bookcase and I thought I saw a porn and I did an investigation on it actually did two weekend episodes about it, way back when, so I’m going to share that with you today.

Hopefully I don’t have COVID and I’m just in Hawaii.

Let me cut to the chase. I think Jerry Seinfeld’s character on Seinfeld has a whole bunch of porn sitting on his shelf and he just keeps it out in the open. I was watching the episode with Mr. Bookman. This is the library cop who is chasing Jerry down and they’re standing in front of Jerry’s Bookshare.

And I noticed Jerry had all these homemade VHS tapes, those of you a certain age, you’d record star Trek off channel 11 and write star Trek in marker on label. So Jerry’s got a bunch of those on a shelf. And I started to read the titles and I was like, wait, am I making something up here?

That’s not actually there, but I found an image where it zoomed in. I’ll read you the titles, you can decide for yourself. So these are all the on a jury shelf in the book, Bookman. He’s got a bunch of handwritten VHS tapes. Here are the titles easy love the second one, I can’t make out the third one, gunfights.

Okay. Fourth one owed to desire the next one, rug burn. The next one’s called the title. All right. But then the next one. Appears to have three X’s on it and a word I can’t quite make out. S E R I something, something but XXX search or something. The one after that is love second word, C H, and something is blocked by Jerry’s head.

So I’m wondering, does this guy just have a bunch of porn out on the shelf and doesn’t care and doesn’t even use the old school trick of labeling and say, you know, Superman three or something, just asking. If you get down this rabbit hole, you will find other images of Jerry shelf. I’m looking at one here.

And I think this is later in this series where Jerry apparently has some video games. There’s clearly a SIM city sitting on the shelf. He’s got two copies of the movie. True colors must really like that is got pretty woman. Child’s play the hunt for red October. Arachnophobia and a bunch of others. So that’s one of the images you can find.

So then I found a fun website at first, I’m an idiot, and I thought most of these were real. So this was a really good job by a website called X rents, health.blogspot.com. So they’ve got another screen grab of some of the titles that are on Jerry’s shelf. So the titles are actually there, but I was an idiot and thought maybe some of these were real movies.

So the movies fictional, Jerry has Rochelle, Rochelle. And according to x-ray and hell, they made up that this would start Jeremy irons and came out in 1987. So stupid me as I was reading, this was like, oh yeah. All right. Maybe that was a real movie who knew. And then death blow starring Tom Selleck from 1990.

I should have realized that that didn’t make sense. I also believed in cold fusion from 1989, starting Linda Hammond. And then I felt really stupid prognosis negative. The movie George really wanted to go see according to this website stars, Mark Harmon, Holly hunter, Timothy Hutton, and Ernest Borgnine, a brooding courtroom, melodrama.

It’s sold via dizzying array of multiple flashbacks. And I was like, oh, it’s a real movie. All right. So I’m reading this and, I eventually got. Blimp the Hindenburg story, starting Joe biscuit ball. And I was like, wait, what?

That’s a movie. And I went to Google blimp, the Hindenburg story starting Joe Piscopo. It is not. And then I realized I was being punked. Again, I’m being punked by a funny website who knows that people like me are stupid. The movies actually appear as cases in Jerry’s apartment, but there is no blimp.

The Hindenburg store is starting to jump his cabal. Although I really wish that. The other movies and Jerry’s apartment checkmates, firestorm blame it on the rain channel. 32 miles of hell. That’s a funny title, sack lunch, starring Dabney Coleman. You would watch that. But again, I am fascinated.

Later in the series, we were able to start recognizing more items on the shelf. These are really good job here. Looking at . Half-assed production stock. Jerry’s got any S games, super spike, volleyball. I owned to that Tetris SIM city and world cup. So that TV and Jerry’s barmy then we really don’t see too much.

Does he have a Nintendo hooked up to it? Does he play these games? When does he play them? Some of his VHS collection? No, not the ones I mentioned earlier , wired Copa cabana, starting Groucho Marx. Benny Hill’s video Follies and arachnophobia, true colors, pretty woman, the crying game child’s play to back to the future three Goodfellas hunt for red October, driving for distance, which is a golf video, saving par from the sand.

Also a golf video. Does Jerry play golf? Well, apparently he does. Let’s go off on another tangent from golf.com nine times. Golf has mentioned number nine, the magic loop. Jerry debunks, a story by Newman and Cramer that a singular spitter attack them after a Mets game, Jerry borrows, a golf club from Kramer, which he was using as a walking stick to help state his case.

Okay. Number eight, Kramer is a hashtag golf guy. The only real work Kramer ever did on Seinfeld was on his swing. Why go to the driving range? When you can go to Jerry’s apartment number seven, the rules are very clear about.

Kramer interest Jerry’s apartment. I rate over an encounter on the course of his playing partner. According coordinated Kramer. He picked up his ball and cleaned it off before hitting his next shot. That’s a big no-no in golf. All right. So far, this is Kramer as a golfer. Number six, stand the caddy stand.

The caddy brought out the best in Kramer’s games. So Kramer is a golfer, maybe they’re Cramer’s videos, number five Kramer’s sand game. And we see that. When Kramer’s doing a swing on the beach, number four, Kramer says I can’t go back to the public courses. Now, number three, who wants to have some fun, the sheer excitement of Kramer’s face when asking Jerry and George to take a ride hit balls is one we all have after being cooped up from a long winter.

Number two, Kramer stinks at golf. The boss is sitting there and I can hit it. Number one, is that a Titlest? That’s when George saves a beach whale as a foam Marine biologist, when he discovered an obstruction in the book. Yes, it was Kramer’s one good shot from his beach session. So I don’t know if Jerry plays, but, uh, I guess Kramer does.

Jerry also has a big collection of board games. Half-ass productions.com did a list of them. They are taboos, grabble, battleship, CLU, Jenga, Jase, risk Stratego, and channel surfing. And we do actually see Jerry play Scrabble twice in this.
