Curb Your Enthusiasm

Today's Sopranos moment doesn't offer any hot pictures like last week, but it does shed a little light on the mother-of-all fuckstompings that Tony laid out on Coco last night. How did Coco survive that? Well, to the rescue!

Turns out it's called "curbing" and it previous found a place on the screen in American History X. According to Slate, curbing, or curb-stomping, is also known as the "Brighton Beach Special" and the "Russian Mouthwash," and it is generally meant to wound, not to kill. It all depends where the foot comes down: If it strikes the back of the neck, the victim dies; if the foot strikes the head, the jaw is separated from the skull, but death does not necessarily follow. That's how Coco could have made it.

UPDATE: Miss Fort Worth continues to rock! I found this new Sarah Shahi interview that isn't that enlightening, but it is an excuse to run another photo. Heh. Click thru. It's worth it.
