Jerry Seinfeld Makes Festivus Joke After Mets Acquire Yoenis Cespedes

We don’t know how long Jerry Seinfeld had been saving his latest Festivus joke, but it was pure gold.

Seinfeld is a New York Mets fan, and his favorite team traded for a major bat before the Major League Baseball non-waiver trade deadline when acquired Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers on Friday. Suffice it to say, the “Seinfeld” co-creator seemed pleased on Twitter.

So close, Jerry.

That’s better.

Even though he misspelled the name of his team’s newest player, Seinfeld managed to get the punch line across: comparing the Cespedes trade with Festivus, a fictional holiday fans of the show know well.

“That’s gold, Jerry! Gold!”
