The dog hair in Larry's cereal bowl and his reaction made me literally laugh at loud.

In LA, you wouldn't expect to see too many of those hats.

Obviously people who are acquaintances of Larry wouldn't believe it anyways, realize he's playing a prank.

When he poured that into his bowl I thought it was dog food.

He's an old white man. It's not uncommon for that demographic to take a sharp turn into right-wing conservatism, sometimes seemingly out of the blue.

Even knowing it's a prank, most of his friends wouldn't want to be seen with him in public wearing that hat - especially not in L.A.

Loved the opener. Too many LOL moments to count but Susie's "Abe Lincoln" outfit and how Cheryl's Talcum power allergy was revealed had me doing spit takes.

I laughed at the pregnant woman at the gym exercising. She tells Larry her midwife (the new trendy thing is to have an old fashioned 19th century style midwife instead of a doctor) says it's OK. He says something like, what does your blacksmith say.

"Maybe you should call your blacksmith".

I also broke up when he confronted Richard Lewis in the coffee shop about his obvious failure to boycott Mocha Joe, and he wanted to know if the coffee was hot, put his hand over the cup to test the air temperature, and then leaned down and put his nose into the coffee (as he had done previously, with JB in there with him, and had gotten banned-for-life by Mocha Joe), and Richard Lewis said "what are you, a goose??"

It was no coincidence Larry was riding a Peloton bike.

More likely to go up to someone on a Peloton and knock them over.

The Nose Test scene with Richard Lewis is hilarious. As with others, you can tell that Richard still really loves doing this show.

There are dozens of stationary bikes, and because of the controversy over the commercial, that he chose to use that one, to me it was another one of those subtle inserts that Larry does.

Or Peloton actively offered a bag of cash for product placement. They have to ramp things up now that they are public.

I was curious when they filmed this. You may be right. This is a really good interview.

What a season thus far. I almost feel bad for laughing at episode 3's ending, but my goodness what a way that was to drive a point home.

Brilliant how he tied all the plot strands, the weights, the beans, the glasses cloth, all together.

I'm actually not liking this season very much. Way over the top and going for broad humor rather than anything intelligent.

There's certainly not much in the way of subtlety, but Curb has traditionally hit the audience over the head with outrageous circumstances. I think the writing this season is actually quite "intelligent" relative to others with regard to adding layers to the story arc. At the very least, it has been very imaginative.

J.B. Smoove is in awesome form this season, hilarious and really killin' it with his obscenity-laced tirades, absolutely "fallin' down funny!" It's like he's trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records this year for number of times the f-word has been used as a noun, verb, and adjective in a single paragraph.

Yeah some people think Larry is channeling the crochety old man shaking his fist at the kids on his lawn.

But no, his beefs are with people who are at least middle aged.

Absolutely! One thing: So Ted now knows what he knows and who does he blame and not blame (so far).

The day after I watch I find my usage of f-bombs increases exponentially. Of course in my head I'm thinking I sound like Leon. But in reality I must sound like some goofy old man. Lol.

Larry David says "I could give a f*ck" about alienating Trump fans by mocking the "MAGA" hat

Quote:
After President Trump tweeted an out-of-context clip of David wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat on Curb Your Enthusiasm's Season 10 premiere, Sports Illustrated's Jimmy Traina tweeted a 92Y conversation from last month in which interviewer Michael Kay asked if David was afraid of alienating the president's fans. "Alienate yourselves," David responded. "Go and alienate. You have my blessing!" David then added: “No, I could give a f*ck!”

That was great. Although, while it may have the same great taste, it is severely lacking in body.

Last night's episode was TRULY HILARIOUS! His observational comedy concepts are genius.

And Susie was in rare form as well. "I am NOT a mieskeit, you bald f***!!!"

Richard Lewis as well, taking his golf clubs home to conceal his non-standard putter, and with his new Bentley and the parking lot mugging scene. "What are you, Maverick?"

Also, son of a doctor. "Truly magical". With conceptual textualizing by JB.

Casting Nick Kroll, and the good-looking-area and ugly-area of the restaurant, along with the men's bathroom attendant side-story.

It goes on an on for the solid 30 minutes.

Every episode this season has been tremendous, laugh-out-loud hysterical.
