Reflection for today…The Horrors of Social Intercourse -Larry David

13 Apr

 “What’s uncomfortable is that people never tell one another the truth, in a way.

The truth is so uncomfortable for people because we’re not used to it.

You can’t have social intercourse by being truthful.

It doesn’t work. That’s why we’re all liars.

But you can on TV, so that’s why some people are uncomfortable.”

Larry David

Larry David says that social events are death…

Larry David relishes in honesty…

In this clip Larry discusses tricky social situations.

He questions social conventions with a fusion of comedy and honesty.


Do you agree with Larry’s thesis of social intercourse?

Do you think that we complicate ourselves too much by following these archaic social conventions?

Is it ironic that Larry David follows and enforces so many of his own rules yet he is a social assassin?

What coping mechanisms do you rely on in awkward social situations?

Do you want to be a “social assassin” like Larry David in Curb?

Leon is just as honest as Larry is…

What do you think would happen if there was more honesty in social interactions?

Would it be a disaster?

Or would it be pure joy and freedom?

Is “I have nothing more to contribute” your new exit line?

Is Larry David your comedic hero?

    Great pics. Will come back and watch the clips. You are dangling a juicy carrot in front of this donkey / monkey / analyst of genius comedy. I aim, but don’t guarantee, to make a start on ‘CYE’ after ‘Californication’.

    I think great social (and sexual) intercourse, and complete honesty, IS possible with like-minded people. Intercourse descends as like-mindedness dilutes. I suspect David’s problem is that he’s surrounded by people totally unlike him.
