Seinfeld Wired for Sound at CTIA Gig

The headliner for the events annual gala was Jerry Seinfeld, who did his usual analysis of the inane. He had a great time overtly flinging the cord of his microphone around the stage while he stood under a gigantic "Wireless Lifestyles" sign and had a field day with the CTIA slogan: "Live. Work. Play." "Why dont you just add YOU MORON?" Seinfeld yelled, mocking the banner. Later, the Kitty was rolling in the aisle when the comic began a whole shtick about advertisements that tell you the name of the product but not what the product is. The Furball couldnt help but compare the routine to the recent cryptic ad campaign of one of the shows larger exhibitors. Sure enough, after the lights came up, Spencer heard an AT&T Wireless employee murmur, "I was petrified he was going to start talking about mLife. Thank God he didnt."
CTIA offered a buffet dinner at the gala, for which attendees had certainly paid good money. Sadly, the diners exceeded the amount of food. By 7 p.m., His Hirsuteness witnessed some of the most powerful members of the industry eating bologna scraps and olives out of plastic cups because that was all that remained of the buffet.
