Have you ever wondered why everyone on Seinfeld was always hanging out at Jerry's apartment? Why did the main characters always seem to be playing catch up with each other's lives in every episode? This fan theory, from Redditor hotdoggstyle, may just give you the answer you've been looking for:

"As a somewhat successful comedian, Jerry is constantly on the road touring, appearing on various late night talk shows, and is more than likely out of town for weeks at a time. His closest friends know his schedule, so when he's in town they know exactly where to find him and don't mind popping in because they haven't seen him for some time."

In the episode "The Frogger" Kramer alerts Jerry and Elaine to a serial killer operating in New York under the moniker "The Lopper." Apparently, he is killing people wholook like Jerry. As theorized, some people believe that The Lopper could have been Jerry's old enemy, Crazy Joe Davola.

"The last time we see Joe Davola is in the "The Pilot" when he tries to attack Jerry in the TV studio. We never find out what happened to him. Perhaps he was arrested for his attempted assault on Jerry and sent to prison. There, Joe became increasingly angry and hostile towards Jerry. When he got out of prison, he hated Jerry so much that he started beheading anyone who looked like him."

While most Seinfeld fans believe Kramer never held a job, this theory states the opposite: Kramer was secretly a drug dealer and possibly an addict. This could explain how he affords an apartment in Manhattan.

Wondering who's supplying his stuff? Dorkly has a theory for that: "
Kramer would need a supplier, but we already know his hook-up: Bob Sacamano, the mysterious friend of his that goes unseen for the entire series."

Is it possible that Seinfeld, Friends, and Mad About You actually all existed in the same universe? One Redditor (whose account has since been deleted) sure thought so. Their theory holds:

"There's a scene in Mad About You where it's revealed that Kramer's apartment is under Paul's name. Ursula, Phoebe's sister from Friends is the waitress at the bar where Paul and Jamie hang out. Seinfeld and Friends (and Mad About You) take place in the same timeline, the same universe."
