Jerry Seinfeld has joked that talking has become obsolete these days….
In a recent set of material he performed at a David Lynch Foundation benefit at Carnegie Hall, the veteran comedian joked about modern things like smartphones, texting and sending emails.
“Talking is over, it’s obsolete,” Seinfeld said at the Wednesday gala for movie director Lynch’s Transcendental Meditation organization. “I feel like a blacksmith up here sometimes. If you want, I can text you this whole [routine] and we can get the hell out of here.”
He added in the act: “It used to be you just lived. Now you have your life and your phone’s battery life . . . If my phone goes totally dead, I plug it in and sit next to it and wait for it to get better. Put a little washcloth over its head. ‘Don’t make any alerts or sounds . . . you just rest.’”
He does have a point, though. Since smartphones have become so much of a part of our everyday lives, it has become harder and harder to detach ourselves from the tech.
I’m starting to see why Kate Winslet bans her kids from getting so addicted to their gadgets.
