Calling It: The Deeper Origins of the Executive Order
"One of the problems in life is that when you’re a kid, you have a certain way of working out disagreements. And those laws do not work in the adult world.
One of the main ways that kids resolve any dispute is by calling it. One of them says, “I got the front seat” “I wanted the front seat!” “I called it”. And the other kid knows he’s got nothing to say: “He called it. What can I do?” If there was a Kid Court Of Law, it holds up. “Your Honour, my client did ask for the front seat” And the judge would go, “Did he call it?” “Well no, he didn’t call-” BANG! (Jerry imitates a judge banging his gavel.) “He has to call it, case closed. Objection overruled.” -- Seinfeld -The Robbery
