Yesterday the persnickety fount of wisdom known as Jerry Seinfield took to Reddit to answer questions about everything from his personal style to a new mystery project with Larry David. (Actually, he couldn’t say much about the latter.)

And we pulled out the five most interesting sentences…

On Style: “It started with wanting to be Joe Namath of the 1969 New York jets, who at that time was one of the only football players to wear white shoes. And I wanted to be like him, so I always wore white sneakers. Also, Bill Cosby on I SPY always wore white sneakers. And they were my fashion icons.”

On Writing: “Writer’s block is a phony, made up, BS excuse for not doing your work.”

On the Creation of Festivus: “I didn’t come up with it, it was the invention of Dan O’Keefe’s father, who was a writer on our show. We never anticipated anything. I anticipated it would be a good idea that would get us through this week.”

On Relaxing: “Somtimes after a show on the road, I will find a place to have a cigar in an alleyway next to the hotel with a friend of mine, and I find that very relaxing.”

On Larry David: “We never obsess over anything that isn’t mundane. Most recent was intentional mumbling. We wrote this script for this thing that you will eventually see but I can’t reveal what it is at this time. All I can do is tell you is that it’s big, huge, gigantic. Even bigger than that Amazon package.”
