Is there some joke I'm missing here? In the limo: Testikov gets visibly upset, and Lippman tries to stop her from explaining. I know it's based on Jerry's earlier joke, but is her claim offensive somehow?

Testikov: He didn't need any inspiration....God spoke through his pen.

You are watching: War what is it good for seinfeld

Elaine: That is so true! Although one wonders if "War and Peace" would have been as highly acclaimed as it was if it was published under it's original name "War---What Is It Good For?"

Lippman: What?

Elaine: Yes. Mr. Lippman. It was his mistress who insisted he called it "War and Peace." "War--What Is It Good For."(sang) Absolutely nothin'! (spoken to Testikov) that's the song that they got from Tolstoy.

Lippman: I'm sorry, it's just her sense of humor.

The Summer of George
War & Peace: often considered greatest novel of all time, high litterature with multipage descriptions and often considered the best description of war... and the novel is definitely not against wars in general, it sees war as a nation builder and a positive experience for most aristocrats.
