The Two and a Half Men cocreator's vanity card this week read, "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."
Jeez, Chuck, we know you're a comedy writer, but on the very same day when the star of your show gave a disturbing interview to Dan Patrick in which he implied he can handle smoking crack "socially," do you really want to make a joke about his potential death? We're sure you're pissed he's caused you to shut down production, but the guy has made more money for you than Jon Cryer's Alan is raking in, ripping off his family in a Ponzi scheme (note: are we still supposed to like this character?). Maybe the mannequin Rose (Melanie Lynskey) has been passing off as her husband isn't the only dummy on the set.
Do you think Chuck Lorre crossed the line with his end-credits gag?
