What is ...not That There's Anything Wrong With That...?
An expression used when denying homosexuality but remaining politically correct and without bigotry or homophobia. Usually said after such exclamations as "I'm not gay," etc.
HISTORY: Popularized by the TV show "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998, currently in reruns). In Season 4, Episode 17, titled "The Outing," the characters Jerry Seinfeld (Jerry Seinfeld) and George Costanza (Jason Alexander), are mistaken to be a gay couple by a reporter. When they deny their homosexuality, they follow it with "Not that there's anything wrong with that" no matter how desperate they are to clear their names of the for some reason bad publicity homosexuality brings celebrities.
