Seinfeld inspiration

Like Kramer, a law firm actually hung a sign that said “bad food” over a Kenny Rogers Roasters because the smell was going into their offices.

Schaffer, who wrote the episode “The Chicken Roaster,” explained that the idea of Kramer having a problem with a Kenny Rogers Roasters came when he walked past one of the restaurants in New York. “It was below a law firm, and I guess the chicken waft from the chicken factory was venting into this law office. So they did what any rational person would do, just hang a giant sign that said ‘bad food,'” said Schaffer.
