'curve your enthusiasm' for 'curb your enthusiasm'

To ‘curve’ one’s enthusiasm is, I suppose, to take a more oblique or sidelong approach. It almost makes sense. About 180 ghits, many referring to the HBO series:

So: to all the young and – unfortunately vaguely talented people out there: curve your enthusiasm and beware of what you really need: talent is 10% ... … 044&page=1

And Golgotha, remember to curve your enthusiasm a little tiny bit, at the very least don’t call your pops ‘dude’.

Curve your enthusiasm there. From the report (All we have) it would seem that the biker was at fault.

I am hooked on this. show on HBO “Curve your Enthusiasm” its rather funny.
