Did George Actually Double Dip That Chip?

Or did he enact a double-dip loophole, that technically allows you to double-dip if you second dip an untouched chip corner?

If you love Seinfeld, you probably remember one of their most famous scenes ever, from the episode "The Double Dip." In it, George gets in trouble for double-dipping a chip at his girlfriend's grandmother's wake.


Double dipping is the act of dipping a chip into a substance like salsa or guacamole, taking a bite of that chip, then dipping the half-bitten chip again back into the substance, which is basically "like putting your whole mouth right in the dip."


See, you technically can* dip other corners of your bitten chip as long as a previously bitten corner does not go into the dip. If he doesn’t go too deep then he is safe, because of the non-touched corner loophole.

*I would advise you to avoid any possibility of being a double-dipper by getting a righteous amount of dip and eating the entire thing in the FIRST bite. Why risk years of humiliation?

In conclusion: George should be acquitted of all false double-dipping accusations. Unless there is wider footage of the dip scene in question, George should be a free man to dip as he was.
