(RNN) – A picture is said to be worth a thousand words, but what is a picture of Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander worth? Nothing?

What if it was a photo of the two comedic actors and former stars of the hit sitcom Seinfeld in front of the iconic Tom's Restaurant? Tom's exterior was used as Monk's in the show. Maybe it is something, but maybe not. No, it's probably nothing.

Ali Philippides photographed the two men walking into the cafe where the Seinfeld crew ate many meals and talked about practically nothing, tweeting "just saw Jerry and George walking in to Tom's Restaurant."

The internet soon exploded and then found out that Seinfeld co-creator Larry David was also inside the cafe. The NYC-based website Gothamist wrote the restaurant was closed and camera crews were also there, making the buzz create many possibilities. Was the meeting a series reboot, a Super Bowl commercial, a shoot for Seinfeld's popular Comedians in Cars getting Coffee web series? Who knows?!

As I continue to speculate, enjoy this Monk's related Seinfeld clip.

Music: Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers puts the FCC on red alert for the Super Bowl

Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea might have freaked the Federal Communications Commission out Tuesday.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band will be performing with R&B singer Bruno Mars at Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2, but Flea might have taken the celebration a little too far when he tweeted a request to his more than 1 million followers.

To paraphrase the tweet, Flea asked if halftime show viewers would want to watch him perform in the nude. It would not be a shock if the band, infamous for their strategic placement of gym socks, actually did this.

The tweet was quickly deleted, showing that even 10 years after the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake incident, it wouldn't be a good idea to reveal yourself to a worldwide viewership. Plus, Flea and RHCP may not want to end up like singer M.I.A., who is being sued by the NFL for her middle finger during the Madonna halftime show in 2011. The NFL has enough legal matters to deal with.

Jam of the Week: Vintage Trouble, Run like the River (LIVE) – The passion of this soul-rock band out of LA speaks for itself, especially in their live performances. Indulge yourself in their YouTube channel.

A little something from YouTube: Guy falls through roof, all he can say is ‘Hey'

Imagine the surprise of a few pro shop employees when a guy, supposedly walking on the roof, suddenly falls through and gets roof shingles all over their nice Ping golf apparel.

What would you do? Rush to his aid? Freak out?

In this video, all Billy (store employee) and Ryan (guy falling through the roof) say to one another is "Hey."
