A Post About Nothing

Earlier this week, I was watching a Seinfeld rerun from 1993. (The year is important.) In this episode, Elaine is dating a man named Joel Rifkin, which also happens to be the name of a notorious serial killer.

To avoid the embarrassment and confusion of sharing a name with a murderer, Elaine urges Rifkin to change his. One of her suggestions? O.J. "O.J. Rifkin! You don't even use a name, it's just initials. Oh please please please change your name to O.J.! Please, it would be so great!"

This episode first aired in November of 1993, when the Juice was better known as the lovable Nordberg, and eight months before the murders.

Eerie.
