   In the 137th episode of “Seinfeld,” Jerry explains the concept of the Bizarro World, which originated in the Superman comics, to his friend Elaine. She has befriended Jerry’s polar opposite, who lives in a backwards replica of Jerry’s apartment and, unlike Jerry, is considerate and kind.
   “Like Bizarro Superman!” Jerry says. “Superman’s exact opposite, who lives in the backwards Bizarro World. Up is down, down is up, he says ‘hello’ when he leaves, ‘goodbye’ when he arrives.”
    Perhaps no other comparison is as apt for 2016. It’s Bizarro World, in which everything we’ve been told could never, ever come to pass actually, incredibly has happened...http://nypost.com/2016/12/03/2016-embraced-the-bizzaro-world/
