In shocking and troubling news, Charlie Sheen has been fired from “Two and a Half Men.”
An announcement serving both Warner Bros. and CBS stated simply, “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on “Two and a Half Men” effective immediately.” One can only guess that failing to end that statement with “Duh.” was an oversight.
This should free up Mr. Sheen to return to his callings as a martian rock star, a fighter jet, feline blood, or whatever else the hell he’s decided to start calling himself since I started typing this article four minutes ago.
No word on the fate of the show, though with one less man, that means that the show will be 40% weaker. Certainly, news on the fate of the show will come shortly, but don’t expect crew members to pass up pilot season holding candlelight vigils in the hopes that Jon Cryer and the fat kid will be enough to keep this thing going.

Sheen has already somehow responded with:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”
I’m sure the producers are already regretting their decision to part ways with him. (TMZ)
