At the end of every episode, Lorre features a vanity card consisting of words of wisdom, essays or observations on life. It’s only shown for a few seconds but are always posted on his website ChuckLorre.com.
Lately these “observations” have seemingly been plucked from his own recent past.
On February 14 he aired this Vanity Card at the end of Two & a Half Men:
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #329
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.
This is seemingly what caused Charlie Sheen’s recent tirade which caused the show to be cancelled this season.
On February 14 he posted this cute lil’ inspirational poem ditty seemingly dedicated to his favorite crackpot:
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #330
He felt dead inside.
No matter how hard he partied, he could never escape that simple fact – inside, dead.
And that was his life.
Running from a feeling.
At least until he could run no more.
Exhausted, spent and beaten, when the end finally came, he welcomed it.
With life ebbing from his wasted body, he was suddenly swept up in a transcendent state of joy that was pure and complete.
Moments later he felt dead inside.
What do you think about the vanity cards? Too much? Do you think he should be posting stuff about his own employee and adding fuel to the fire? I’m all for getting Sheen some help and laughing at him at every possible expense (See Top 10 Awesome Charlie Quotes this Week) but honestly – this is just plain unprofessional, in my opinion. I’m not sure who the worst person is in this situation? The one addicted to crack who can’t seem to help himself or the one with NO addictions who can’t seem to help himself?
