NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. comedian Jerry Seinfeld is believed the man behind a series of books that capture Seinfeld-like situations and jokes, the New York Post reported.
Circumstantial evidence is strong that Seinfeld is behind the series of Ted L. Nancy books that debuted in 1997, the Post reported Sunday.
Exhibit A: Jokes sounding like they came from a "Seinfeld" episode, such as Nancy's announcing the creation of the "Yumbrella," an umbrella that's edible after a rain.
Exhibit B: Suspiciously Seinfeldian comic letters to businesses, celebrities and politicians worldwide.
Then there's Exhibit C, the forward in the newest Nancy installment, "All New Letters from a Nut: Includes Lunatic Email Exchanges":
"Some have even guessed that I, Jerry Seinfeld, the two-commercial spokesperson for Microsoft Corporation, am the real Ted. All of these allegations, even the true ones, are false."
The Post said it tried to interview Nancy in person, but had to settle for an e-mail exchange. When asked directly if he were Seinfeld, Nancy responded: "That you will just have to find out when Jerry Seinfeld reveals the real Ted L. Nancy on national TV. Just make sure you get your 3D Glasses."
Nancy's representatives said the announcement would be made on CNN this month.
