Are you on Team Charlie or Team Chuck?
No matter what you think about the Charlie Sheen Two and a Half Men fiasco, you’ve got to give show creator and co-executive producer Chuck Lorre his props — he IS funny.
His latest vanity card — flashed for a quick second at the end of his other hit CBS show, The Big Bang Theory, on Thursday night — featured this short, but sweet little gem: “My lawyer ate my vanity card.”
We can’t help but wonder what the uber-successful TV titan wanted to say, especially in the wake of Sheen’s string of bizarre cross-country appearances as part of his live ‘My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option’ tour.
Sheen is currently in New York, where he will perform two sell-out gigs at the famed Radio City Music Hall.
Lorre’s vanity cards have been his trademark of sorts; In addition to ‘Men’ and The Big Bang Theory, he also closes his other hit CBS show, Mike and Molly, with a lickey-split graphic that contains his personal rants and ramblings. Perhaps, his most famous — or infamous one — came early in the Sheen scandal when he posted after the February 14 broadcast of Two and a Half Men: “I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I’ve had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKG’s and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. I don’t have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.
“If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.”
After Sheen publicly blasted Lorre and Warner Bros., he was fired from his hit sit-com. Sheen is currently suing Lorre and Warner Bros. for $100 million plus punitive damages.
