Seinfeld Episode ‘The Bottle Deposit’ Comes to Life

you cannot be serious…

A Michigan man hauling more than 10,000 bottles faces up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine for a recycling scheme reminiscent of a classic Seinfeld episode, according to officials.

The scheme is very similar to one hatched by Kramer and Newman in the Seinfeld episode “The Bottle Deposit” where they collect cans in New York and attempt to take them to Michigan. The pair was also unsuccessful in their efforts.

Law professor Peter Henning told the Guardian Everidge isn’t likely to go to prison, but the $1,000 payday wasn’t worth the risk, since he now faces a $5,000 fine.

“Kramer was right,” Henning said. “The cost-benefit analysis just doesn’t work.”

So…… do you think they recently saw the bottle deposit episode on TV and went ‘wow what a great idea!‘ or what?
