“Two gentile businessman meet on the street. One of them says, ‘How’s business?’ The other one says, ‘Great!"
Seinfeld was a guest on Norm MacDonald Live and invented a joke that flabbergasted most people in the room. Jerry claimed that only Jews will get it then later clarified to the Jewish co-host that he is too young to understand. As predicted by Seinfeld, neither Norm or Adam fully comprehended the levity of the comedy. It is possible that there was no joke.
The trending video on YouTube has gathered some 240,000 views and spurred debate of the meaning. Is the joke about how things are great for the gentiles or if they were Jewish things wouldn't be great? The deeper meaning could be that if they were Jewish they would have found something to complain about.
