There's nothing better than a Larry David NY Times opinion piece about Brokeback Mountain to make Gothamist snap out of our hangover. In true Larry David fashion, David writes about why he refuses to see the critically acclaimed film:
If two cowboys, male icons who are 100 percent all-man, can succumb, what chance to do I have, half- to a quarter of a man, depending on whom I'm with at the time? I'm a very susceptible person, easily influenced, a natural-born follower with no sales-resistance. When I walk into a store, clerks wrestle one another trying to get to me first. My wife won't let me watch infomercials because of all the junk I've ordered that's now piled up in the garage. My medicine cabinet is filled with vitamins and bald cures.
The end of the piece is so good that we wish Curb Your Enthusiasm filmed more regularly. But we guess we'll have to wait for the South Park spoof. Our question now is whether or not Heath Ledger or Jake Gyllenhaal will appear in Season 6.
