An Inmate Manages to Get Better Food By Claiming He Believes In 'Festivus' . . . the Made-Up Holiday from "Seinfeld"



There's a famous episode of "Seinfeld" where George says his family didn't celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah . . . they celebrated a made-up holiday called FESTIVUS.





--Anyway, 38-year-old Malcolm Alarmo King is a convicted drug dealer who's locked up in the Theo Lacy jail in Santa Ana, California right now. And he was clearly familiar with that episode. The prison staff was not.





--Malcolm hated the salami meals that the jail kept serving, so he told prison officials that he can't eat salami . . . because it's against his Festivus beliefs.





--They believed him, and served him the much-less-awful KOSHER MEALS for almost TWO MONTHS . . . until someone finally caught on that Festivus is a "Seinfeld" holiday and not part of any actual religion.
