Inmate Seeking Kosher Meals Cites Festivus Belief
(AP) SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A Festivus for the rest of us? A convicted drug dealer in California thinks so. He cited his adherence to the holiday celebrated on a famous episode of "Seinfeld" to get better meals at the Orange County jail.
The Orange County Register reported Monday that Malcolm Alarmo King disliked the salami meals served at the jail, so he used his devotion to Festivus as a reason to get kosher meals reserved for inmates with religious needs.
Keeping kosher is not one of the tenets of Festivus, which was depicted on "Seinfeld" as celebrated with the airing of grievances and the display of an aluminum pole.
Sheriff's spokesman Ryan Burris says King got salami-free meals for two months before the county got the order thrown out in court.
Can you believe this crap? Serve him bread and water!

Festivus is not kosher, it's a made up holiday! If he wants to make up his own rules, then yes, let him eat bread and drink water. If he really wants to throw a fit, let him have unleavened bread, it sounds more religious.
