I wonder if the Secret Service agents caught playing in Colombia have considered using the “George Costanza Defense”?
In a classic Seinfeld episode, George was messing around with the office’s cleaning lady and she ratted him out to the boss.
The boss called George in for a “conversation”:
Mr. Lippman: It’s come to my attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
George Costanza: Who said that?
Mr. Lippman: She did.
George Costanza: Was that wrong?
Should I not have done that?
I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon…
You know, ‘cause I’ve worked in a lot of offices, and I tell you, people do that all the time.
Wonder if the Secret Service agents have tried George’s Costanza defense?
Might not work, but would at least generate some yuks.
