Larry David's Rage Over Un-"Curb"-ed Shopping Cart.
tmz.com ^ | August 10, 2006 | staff

Posted on 08/10/2006 8:12:27 AM PDT by Leisler

Onscreen king of kvetch Larry David just couldn't contain himself at a Martha's Vineyard parking lot last weekend when an errant shopping cart scratched his beloved BMW 530. According to Page Six, the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Seinfeld" creator and his wife were outside a Vineyard Haven supermarket when a runaway cart made what one eyewitness said was "a little dent" in David's $75,000 car.

David proceeded to call the cops and started, says the witness, "in a golf shirt and shorts, flapping away with his arms. It was just like an episode on his show." Vineyard cops confimed that David called them but no charges were pressed. David's reps had no comment. But David doth protest too much: HBO confirmed yesterday, according to the Hollywood Reporter, that the sixth season of "Curb" will begin production as early as September, with all the principals back, and an airdate coming in 2007.

Sounds like an episode.

See, if he was driving an evil SUV with side nerf bars...he could have avoided that problem alltogether.

What a Putz.

Another reason never to go to Martha's Vineyard.

But you know, I always enjoyed that "Curb Your Enthusiasm" show.

Larry is a strange duck...so is his dear wife.

If it weren't for his show, he'd be in an asylum!

That pampered, neurotic fcuktard is overdue for a little perspective.

Me too, although I think it's declined in quality precipitously in the last couple of seasons.

Bullsh*t! No way a 530i costs $75,000.

Not even a 545. Perhaps an M5...in said event I would help Mr. David kick that shopper's arse too! ;^)

That's the whole point of the show. That George Costanza was not a "character" on Seinfeld, but a fairly accurate depiction of Larry David, as hard to believe as that is. The only thing that is fictional about "Curb" is whatever situation he finds himself in. His reactions to them are all the way he actually would respond to them. He's a mental case.

If he were driving an SUV he'd also be getting similar or better gas mileage and emitting less pollution, the hypocritical, leftist...oh, I repeat myself.

Doesn't surprise me at all that he is just like his character. I know that he is a big Lefty but, I had HBO for a few months free and I loved his show. It was the only thing I missed when the freebie was over.

A fight amongst Martha's Vineyard goers would be one pathetic spectacle. Whom could Larry David prevail against?

Hard to pick a side here for me. Two Martha's Vineyard spoiled ass lefties kicking each others' asses over a dent in his silly ass car would be too much fun to watch. Personally, I'd prefer to arm both sides (at an exorbitant profit) and encourage them all to get their friends and families involved.

The big rub about the body style of the most BMW sedan is that there is no trim piece to protect the side panels.

It screams "kick me"!

Except that when little, tubby 'George Costanza' reacted in this way --- it was funny. Watching 'Curb' is like reading a chinese fortune cookie -- you have to imagine George Costanza in those situations to appreciate the humor. Larry David is just a warped individual who needs to be institutionalized.

Good point.

I have never been to MV, let alone that end of the States...and so I don't believe there is anything I could say about how they run things there.


I only wish we could get the same consideration about Alaska.....esp the North Slope.

Has been run over...for years.

Same thing with Nantucket.

Years ago, they were beautiful, rustic and quaint. Now the islands are lumpy with people who whine and complain and care more for their gourmet kitchens than their neighbors. Pity.

"I think it's declined in quality precipitously in the last couple of seasons."

That's the thing. Larry seems to get more out of control every season.

But it's still funny.

Jason Alexander (George) said he first thought that the "George" character was Woody Allen-like, and that's how he played it (pretty obvious the first season).

Then as he got to know Larry, he realized that "George" was actually Larry. So he did Larry for the remainder of Seinfeld, with some of his own "George" inventions.

Funny your idea of imagining Larry as "George" in Curb. I'll try that next time I watch.

"Out of control" I can handle well enough. I just think that it's not very funny anymore. It's hard to top first and second season episodes like "Porno Gil" and "The Doll."

I hear some towns in the Adirondacks are more like Nantucket and MV were years ago.

I just had a dear client move to that area. The nearest post office is 6 miles away and the nearest FedX drop-off is 60 miles away. He and his wife are going to retire there, in the shadow of a beautiful mountain and by the shores of a silvery lake.

They also don't mind the cold!!!!!

It's not like he needs to worry about price. Residuals from Seinfeld would be sufficient to never have to worry again.
