I was reading something today that mentioned a quote by Jerry Seinfeld in an episode of his show. I had forgotten about it and it struck me as funny today.
All fathers are intimidating. They’re intimidating because they are fathers. Once a man has children, for the rest of his life, his attitude is, “To hell with the world, I can make my own people. I’ll eat whatever I want. I’ll wear whatever I want, and I’ll create whoever I want.”
It’s from the episode with Lawrence Tierney as Elaine’s father. Most people know Tierney as Joe, the gruff mastermind of the heist and Fast Eddie’s father in Reservoir Dogs. He died this week.
