What Would Seinfeld Do? What Would I Do?

15 January 2005
A few weeks ago, I was sitting at a bus stop when I heard a woman yell at, then proceed to slap and kick, her dog.

Now normally, I would have stood up and had loud words with her regarding her treatment of animals, but here's the thing:
The dog was a guide dog. The woman was blind.

So, what do you do in a situation like that?

Now, I didn't give alot of thought to it at the time, but last night, as I was reading a bunch of Seinfeld scripts, I thought, "What would the Seinfeld four make of this?"

Then I thought, screw them. The show's been off the air for nearly seven years - why couldn't I find something really funny in the sceanrio?

So, I'm going to. First I'll write a short story, about what would happen if a bleeding heart liberal/s saw this situation - maybe as a several-layered epistle. Then when that's nutted out, I'll do a script for a 10-15 minute sketch (no I'm not just wasting time. I can't do a script cold, I have to have a reasonable story in prose first).

I think I might be on to something here.
