Larry David Tries to Explain Tampons to a Girl Scout on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (VIDEO)

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'The Divorce'If you're sitting there with an uncomfortable feeling sitting in the pit of your stomach, then you know Larry David is back. In the Season 8 premiere of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO), David found himself in one of the most awkward positions any man could be in.

A girl scout arrived selling cookies, and then realized she had just started her first-ever period. This isn't Larry's daughter. He has no woman in the house anymore. To his credit, Larry tried to do the right thing, and he did have tampons on hand at least.

We can't imagine a more traumatic first time for any young girl than having Larry David outside the bathroom door trying to explain to you how to use a tampon. As we usually see on 'Curb,' Larry's good intentions spiraled out of control and left him in his usual quagmire of self-induced misery.

That and his insecurity about having a non-Jewish lawyer has now left him homeless. Based on the promos, New York here he comes. Can the Big Apple survive Larry David? Are you excited about seeing him out of his usual stomping grounds?

I've enjoyed this show for years, but now they are scraping the bottom of the barrel with this level of pathetic humor. If this is the best their writers can come up with, they've lost sight of creative, artful humor. And then coming full circle again showing Larry with a bloody tampon stuck up his nose, had me looking for the remote to look for another episode of Ice Road Truckers.... This was simply pathetic. Hey Larry & company...you aren't funny anymore.

Agree with MASharkey that the Girl Scout storyline was creepy and unnecessary. CYE's strong suit was always in their addressing the common, everyday problems of us Americans with long lines, cellphone interruptions, various biases, etc. It doesn't work with low probability/plausibility manufactured situations like this, they're trying too hard and it wreaks of "effort" that doesn't pay off. They need to go back to their roots or it's over, it''s just over.

Curb Your Enthusiasm Jumped the Shark. This episode will be remembered as the beginning of the end.

Just plain creepy watched a bald-headed guy fingering a tampon and trying to explain how to push it out of the container ot a Girl Scout. Cringe worthy.
