Another piece of art full of fun stuff

All the four are going to a dinner party and Elaine decides that they should buy a chocolate babka and a bottle of wine while George suggests they take Pepsi and Ring Dings! N e ways, Elaine insists and so they part where Jerry and Elaine go to buy the babka and George and Kramer go to buy the wine. Just the right division, huh? Elaine and Jerry miss the line where a couple they know are going to the same party get ahead of them and buy the last chocolate babka forcing Elaine and Jerry to go for the cinnamon babka which Elaine thinks is not as good as the chocolate babka. When they finally get to have the cinnamon babka, it turns out to have a hair on it so they had to stand in line again and replace it with a new one which the lady who is selling it coughs on it. Jerry who is having a cookie two-colored white and black throws up saying that this ended his non-vomit streak since long time ago. George wants to buy the wine with a $100 bill but the shop owner doesn't have change so they go to a new stand to buy gum but the guy there forces them to buy other things because the gum is not worth the change he will give them. That's just so extremely funny while picturing Costanza. When they finally buy the wine , they go out and find that they can't take the care to pickup Jerry and Elaine because someone has double parked and left the car so they had to wait until the guy returns and while George says that such people are dictators like Mussolini or Idi Amin, when the guy returns he looks just like Saddam Hussein and speaks English. It's just funny and there is more but you need to watch it.
