Do you know why Charlie Sheen is the greatest entertainer in the world right now? Because he is actually trying to entertain us.
He is trying to entertain us all the time. He has made even "The Today Show" worth watching, if only for a few segments. To wit:
He should be tired of pretending he's not special. He is special.
First of all, can you argue with anything that he says about AA? AA is a scam. Even the reprehensible Dr. Drew Pinsky has said that Mr. Sheen "has a point" about it.
Second of all, yes, drugs do "work." They do change the way you see things, and they can be quite fun to use.
Third of all, Mr. Sheen looks older than 45 years old, especially for Hollywood.
Fourth and finally, there's nothing I can write that could be more entertaining than what I might write, so I suggest watching the whole clip -- despite the presence of the loser interviewer. Most especially his questions for Chuck Lorre, the creator of "Two and a Half Men," about eight minutes into the clip.
"Accept me, Chuck."
Given the amount of money involved, he should do just that.
Charlie Sheen does have tiger blood and Adonis DNA. He's trying to be entertaining. Compare this interview to last night's Academy Awards telecast.
When and if Mr. Sheen writes his "tell all" book, I will be first in line to download it to my kindle. I can't wait to read what his fire breathing fists write.
