Chuck Lorre vanity cards

August 11, 2009

If you are paying attention while watching Two and a Half Men or the Big Bang Theory, you will note the appearance of an Easter egg of sorts – a black text on white background image that lasts but a scare moment at the end of each show.   It’s best to DVR the show and use the pause function to allow yourself time to read and digest the hilarity of Chuck Lorre.

Chuck thoughtfully numbers each of these little nuggets of wit, and archives them thoughtfully on his website.

Sometimes these are censored, and you will have to go to the site to find the original version.  Here’s a fine example.   I rather like that one, not for the original joke that was stricken, but rather for Chuck’s thoughts on network execs being made unhappy by having to go to meetings with angry people.  

I love it.

    That is classic. I had seen those flash up and wanted to read, but never thought more. Epic.

    i’ve probably watched a hundred episodes of each of those shows and never noticed this.   then again, maybe i have and thought nothing of it — at least consciously.   next monday i’ll have to pay more attention and go for the pause/rewind button.

    These vanity cards are a bit of wisdom and brightness in a sometimes drab , dull day. Thanks for sharing!
