Oh for fuck's sake

Jumbo Slice just left a comment on my post here asking "who's Leon?"

Jesus goddamn Christ on a popsicle stick. I am so tired of people who cannot/will not keep up with popular culture.

And don't give me all that "oh, I rent the DVDs when they come out and watch them all at once." You've missed the moment. I got no patience or time for people who want to discuss season 8 of Trapper John M.D. in 2009.

Okay, Slice (and Potsy, I know you do this too), I'll explain. Leon is a character on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Curb Your Enthusiasm follows the exploits of Larry David. Larry David invented Seinfeld. Seinfeld was a popular sitcom in the 1990s. A sitcom is a combination of the term "situational comedy." These are all TV terms. "TV" is an abbreviation for "television," and last but not least, television was invented in 1802 in Reggina, Italy by Gianpietro Marconi.

This is the "e-jack-a-lit" clip:

Here's another awesome Leon moment:

So that's Leon. Thus endeth the lesson.

I've actually seen the snicker bar in the asshole clip before, but I still didn't know who Leon was... You know I've got the set-up with cable and I'm not messing with it. Why don't you invite Jumboslice and me over for Curb Your Enthusiasm night, or as sacklunch would say, "Curb" night, so we can be ed-jew-cated. And no, I'm not an anti-semite, before anyone writes in. Larry David is jewish (I think) and it follows the e-jack-a-lit bit, got it?!

Don't hate on the TRAPPER JOHN, man. Gonzo Gates will mess you up.

I think Trapper John put me off hospital shows for good...it was that, then St Elsewhere, ER, Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs, all of it. I hate it all, my trips to the hospital involve lots of ugly people and a lot of waiting followed by some guy from Pakistan sticking his finger in my ass.

And after that, I see the doctor. (rimshot)

They should make a dramedy about a high-powered dental office instead, that seems just as much of a pain as the hospital.

They did. It's called LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS.
I love all of those shows about doctors. Probably because I never get sick and have to go to the doctors.

Check out PRIVATE PRACTICE. All of the doctors are hot, crazy, and eat lots of cake.
