Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has a lot of problems with you people… and now Seinfeld writer Dan O’Keefe has a lot of problems with Rand Paul.

It began when Paul, a Republican, took to Twitter on Monday to air some grievances in honor of Festivus, the holiday “for the rest of us.” Some tweets were more policy-minded: “Allow more debate and amendments. Don’t change the rules to run it with an iron fist.” And some less so: “The Senate cafeteria never has burgoo.”

Paul finished the spree with this friendly jab at Cory Booker: “One more Festivus grievance about bipartisanship. @CoryBooker doesn’t RT me enough.” To which Booker replied: “U, me & “feats of strength:” Senate floor, name the time.”

O’Keefe, whose father had invented a holiday that inspired the creation of Festivus in a 1997 episode of Seinfeld, was none too pleased with Paul’s take. “I have a grievance,” he said on CNN. “When Rand Paul tries to seem relevant with 15-year-old pop cultural references, it reminds me of when Bob Hope used to dress up as The Fonz, but that’s just me.”

Festivus, which is traditionally celebrated on Dec. 23, has been weirdly prominent in this year’s pre-Christmas news cycle, primarily because state houses in both Wisconsin and Florida included Festivus poles in their holiday displays — including one made out of empty PBR cans. This particularly outraged Gretchen Carlson at Fox News. “I am so outraged by this. Why do I have to drive around with my kids to look for nativity scenes and be, like, ‘Oh, yeah, kids, look, there’s baby Jesus behind the Festivus pole made out of beer cans? It’s nuts!”
