Is Chuck Lorre playing his vanity cards well?

Chuck Lorre has spoken — sort of — and told viewers of the "tough time" he's endured lately. The executive producer of Two and a Half Men and foil to his ex-star, Charlie Sheen, on Thursday produced another "vanity card," this time at the end of his other hit comedy, The Big Bang Theory. Vanity cards typically simply feature the logo of a production company, but Lorre has long used them to offer sardonic and oblique musings in extremely small typeface.

Lately he's used them to take shots at Sheen, who last month engaged in a bizarre war of words with his former boss. "Whenever I've gone through tough times, well-meaning people have told me that God/the universe does not give us more than we can handle," Lorre writes. "Well, I've been going through a tough time recently, and sure enough, that old saying has been tossed my way on several morose occasions."

He adds that he's decided the comforting saying isn't true. "Another thing I hear a lot is, ‘this too shall pass.' Again, I know these are words meant to reassure, but somehow they always leave me feeling that heartbreak, rage and grief are going to come shooting out of me like kidney stones through an inflamed urethra," he writes.
