Larry King -- Royally Ticked Off

One panhandler learned a tough lesson last night -- don't push your luck with the King!

Larry King gave one dude $5 outside Mastro's, and when the guy had the stones to ask for more, the 75-year-old talk show host was clearly POed.

Maybe he was just crabby from holding his wife's purse all night.
