Larry David pees on Jesus, pisses off Catholics

Larry David has once again proven his ability to indiscriminately offend—this time, with a bodily function.

On Sunday’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Larry takes a new pill that causes him to pee with the force of a firetruck spray hose. While in the bathroom at his assistant’s house, the back splash lands on a portrait of Jesus, which his assistant later interprets as Jesus “crying” and perceives as some sort of miracle.

According to the Huffington Post, however, Catholic League president Bill Donohue is not feeling especially humored.

In a statement, Donohue said:

Mention Larry David in a word association game and “Seinfeld” rolls off the lips. That show, which David created, wrote and produced, was brilliant. “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is not. Indeed, last night’s episode demonstrates that David’s best years are behind him. He ought to quit while he’s ahead.
...
Was Larry David always this crude? Would he think it comedic if someone urinated on a picture of his mother? This might be fun to watch, but since HBO only likes to dump on Catholics (it was just a couple of weeks ago that Sarah Silverman insulted Catholics on “Real Time with Bill Maher”), and David is Jewish, we’ll never know.

Check out the clip with a cameo by Jerry Seinfeld:
