I was once again tonight reminded of Kramer's coffee table book about coffee tables in "The Cigar Store Indian." So what do you think: do you think it was one of Kramer's better hair-brained ideas throughout the show, or that it was totally idiotic. Personally, I thought it was a pretty good idea. Smile

Isn't it how he supported himself? He got money for writing the book, and then when he sold it for a movie. It's the only means of income i can remember him having over the entire run

There was an old thread about all of Kramer's moneymaking schemes. Wish I could find it and provide a link to it. I'll look around a little.

After Kramer sold his yarns to Peterman, Peterman later give them back to the vagabond Kramer thinking he could rely on Elaine to write his tales (even to slide herself into the sex scenes!). Did Kramer have to give back the money? Inquiring minds want to know.... Smile

Back to the original point of this thread... I think the coffee table book about coffee tables is a great idea. Smile

It was a good idea. Does such a book really exist? Has anyone seen one? If not, maybe I'll create one.

I once saw a coffetable book about coffee.

It reminded me of Kramer when I saw it. It was on the coffee table of one of those book stores you sit around and drink coffee in.

Kramer, I'm not saying hair-brained in a bad way. Hey, my name is Cosmo too so I wouldn't wanna say anything too degrading about the K-Man either! Smile I mean hair-brained as in far-fetched, unusual, that vein.

It's actually "hare-brained", as in "having the brain of a rabbit" Laughing

While I would use harebrained, it does not seem to be a unanimous notion:

Oh, and as long as we're picking nits, there is no hyphen. Wink

I read the article. Thanks for educating me Wink

It does however seem that when the "hair" variant was used many years ago, it was just an alternate spelling of "hare", meaning the long-eared fur-bearing varmint. Since that alternate spelling is never seen today, "hairbrained" is essentially meaningless in the modern lexicon.

And, yes, I screwed up -- there is no hyphen Embarassed

Kramer also must have gotten paid at least union scale for his appearance on "Murphy Brown", so the notion of him never making money seems to have been shot down in this thread.
