Newsflash: Charlie Sheen is not dead

There have recently been a number of reports of celebrity deaths that have turned out to be hoaxes. Charlie Sheen found himself the subject as one of those phony reports. He told The Insider: “When I heard on the news that I had died the other day, I quickly ran to my PC and checked the ratings for my show.” He jokes that he was relieved to find that the ratings for Two and a Half Men “appeared solid. Perhaps even up a bit. You can only imagine my relief when I discovered shortly afterward that they were referring to my actual literal death. That I can survive.” He says when he heard that he’d died, he quickly called his mother to let her know he was alright. Other celebrities who’ve been subject to recent death hoaxes include Eddie Murphy, Aretha Franklin and Adam Sandler.

    After that shows dies (which should be soon), his career should die a quick death as well. And then hopefully we never have to hear about him again, until he overdoses on drugs or dies of a heart attack while with a hooker.

    Love the show. Dislike the actual person.

    I suppose Joe and Kirk are correct. Two and a half men seems to be popular with the lowbrow crowd. You know… the same folks you might spot on peopleofwalmart.com, with a 2digit I.Q., dawning an inappropriate t-shirt while sporting a mullet or something similar.

    As far as I’m concerned, Charlie Sheen’s contribution to society ended with Hot Shots Part Deux.
