Of course, Seinfeld is funny, as is Friends. But when it comes to sex and romance, it puts me in mind of the great saying of Mel Brooks's 2,000- year-old man: "To me, tragedy is, if I'll cut my finger. That's tragedy. It bleeds, and I'll cry, and I'll run around, and go into Mount Sinai for a day and a half. I'm very nervous about it. But to me, come- dy is if you fall into an open sewer and die. What do I care? That's comedy! My finger is important."
