Can Larry not flip himself over? Is he restrained in some way? Physically disabled?
Is Larry being roasted on a stake or given a similar execution? Is he thus showing defiance towards his executors? ('I'm done on this side; flip me over!')
Or is he referring to a representation of himself, like a photo or painting?

Was he sunbathing and all of a sudden could not move himself?

Is Larry being roasted on a stake or given a similar execution? Is he thus showing defiance towards his executors? ('I'm done on this side; flip me over!') First comment? Well done! (...perhaps not the best word choice.)

****SPOILER****

St. Lawrence of Rome was martyred by being roasted alive on a red-hot gridiron. His last words were "Assum est – versa et manduca," idiomatically meaning "Turn me over – I'm done on this side." He is the patron saint of chefs, cooks, and comedians.
