You can always count on Jerry Seinfeld for a good laugh, but the comedian recently shared the reason why he chooses not to take his talents to college campuses.

In a recent interview with ESPN Radio host Colin Cowherd, Seinfeld said, "I don't play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, 'Don't go near colleges. They're so PC.'"

He continued on to say, "I'll give you an example: My daughter's 14. My wife says to her, 'Well, you know, in the next couple years, I think maybe you're going to want to be hanging around the city more on the weekends, so you can see boys.' You know what my daughter says? She says, 'That's sexist.' They just want to use these words: 'That's racist;' 'That's sexist;' 'That's prejudice.' They don't know what the f--k they're talking about."
