Soup Nazi Expanding

I have to subscribe to the wall street journal for my economics class and came across an intersting article today. Al yeganeh, the real life soup nazi, is planning to expand his soup store into a franchise. He is planning on banning the use of the phrase soup nazi in realtion to a franchise. He also goes on to say he dislikes Jerry Seinfeld and that he is the reason Seinfeld was successful. In order to obtain a franchise, the cost will be 30,000 plus 5%of gross sales. He concludes by saying that each store does not have to include the strict militaristic style he baecame famous for.

Has anyone else seen this article< What do you think?

OK, I can accept that he doesn't like Jeery Seinfeld, who cares??? But to say HE is the reason Seinfeld is famous?!?!?! Can anyone say delusional??? I think the dude needs some serious mental help.

Frankly, one of the silliest things I've ever heard. I recall the bastard being upset that his "character" was overblown on Seinfeld, but enough already. Him thinking that he made Seinfeld popular? Oy. More like the other way around. Look, I ate at his dump in The City and it was good soup, but NOT that good. Further, I'll bet that he incorporates SOME kind of marketing that includes "as seen on Seinfeld" or so good it makes your knees buckle", or something. At least he will if he's smart, which seems open to debate (afterlall his dive is always closed in summer). Otherwise, "You're goin' DOWN Soup Nazi!"

Imagine Elaine saying it, at the end of the show -- that's the version I meant... Smile

I was also reffering to Elaine...Why else would i say next? I've never said next before. Has anyone ever heard me say next. (Jerry: "Never heard him say next"). See?
I said it first...but I don't know how official these rankings really are.

...reminds me of this exchange:

Mailman: "So you're refusing delivery?"
Jerry: "I've never done it before."
Mailman: "Why start now?"

Wow, Soup Nazi has a bad memory. The Soup Nazi episode was in Season 7; seems to me 'Seinfeld' was already the #1 show by that time. To my way of thinking, if a show is rated #1 that's a popular show. But I guess Kramer really is the only one who truly understands the Soup Nazi. Laughing
