Curb Your Enthusiasm is noted for its uncompromising look at the social injustices committed every day by the “pig-parkers”, “chat-and-cutters”, and mostly other rich L.A.’ers. Like The Notorious B.I.G. said, “Mo’ money, Mo’ problems”, and Larry David couldn’t agree more.
The problems of the rich, upper crust of society is a world of its own and without Larry David, it wouldn’t be exposed for all the world to laugh at. Problems like eating a dog’s last meal, taking a vow of silence for religious reasons, and declining a chance to support a special needs camp for kids are just some of the things that Larry decides to take on.
The problems that everyone can relate to were real injustices. Parking outside the lines? Ridiculous! Starting up a conversation by “feigning familiarity to cut into the line”? Preposterous!
Those are real crimes against humanity, and good for LD to take them on. We need to expose the people who commit those crimes. As LD so animatedly put it, “The world runs on rules and if people stopped following those rules, there’d just be chaos!”. When the man is right, he’s right. I see no reason why we, as citizens, can’t band together to ensure that society follows the rules laid out there to keep us in check. If that makes us assholes for calling you out on the wrongs you commit, then so be it. I’ll be an asshole any day of the week if it meant less pig-parkers out there.
Of course, it doesn’t end with a parade for Larry David. Because… well he’s an asshole.
