The mark of a has-been
You know a has-been is trying to get back in the publicity loop when they do one or more of the following:
1. get their photo taken while stoned/drunk out of their minds as they leave a night club.
2. has one of their homemade porno videos “stolen” and released on the internet.
3. attack religion in their show/movie/interview.
Larry David went for door #3, and micturated on a picture of Jesus in his show:
‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Larry David Urinates on Picture of Jesus
The set-up is the show’s star and producer Larry David is taking some medication that is making him urinate quite forcefully.
It’s so powerful that while urinating in his assistant’s bathroom, he accidentally splashed some of it on a picture of Jesus Christ hanging on a nearby wall.
As a Big Hollywood commenter pointed out,
Of course, the hypocrisy is that Mr. David would never exhibit such gross contempt for any other religion, especially Islam.
HBO does seem to love picking on Catholicsm, but at least for now let’s hope David doesn’t have any homemade videos he’ll have “stolen” and released on the internet when his ratings continue to slip.
I’m both getting over a cold and on a deadline, so blogging will be light.
