Nanny State

What's the Deal with Nanny Statists?

Jerry Seinfeld's lemonade stand meets the long arm of the law in the final edition of Nanny of the Month.

It"s been a rough year for the extraordinarily rich and successful comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld. First, he caught all kinds of flak for calling out college students for overbearing political correctness and last week he was forced to confront the long arm of luxury town law enforcement. 

You can check out the writeup of the final editon of Reason TV"s beloved series, "Nanny of the Month," below:

Well, this is it—after six years, Nanny of the Month is packing it in, but not before one last hurrah!

Growing vegetables, selling Chipotle burritosphotoshopping modelsfeeding the homelesswearing naughty beige yoga pants, and engaging in consensual sex—over the years busybodies have been itching to bust you for all those crimes.

But for the very last episode we head to the Hamptons for a story that highlights why we may be completely and utterly doomed.

Here"s the deal: A cop shut down a lemonade stand. Yeah, we"ve heard that story enough times we almost forget to be outraged, but in this case the lemonade stand was run by Jerry Seinfeld and his son.

In other words, celebrity—the one force that could plausibly be strong enough to overpower our control-freak culture—got squeezed like an overripe eureka in a gorilla cage.

Runs 84 seconds.
