Lorre: Sheen's Fall From Grace is a 'Sprint'

3/1/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Lorre just posted an existential statement on his website with a vanity card from tonight's episode of "Mike and Molly" -- and if we're reading it correctly, it sounds like "Two and a Half Men" is over and out.

The statement is long and rambling -- it seems he's mocking Charlie's recent ramblings.  Lorre says, "I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individualism, the false feeling of being separate."  Translation:  Charlie may think he's blazing his own path but he's still on the well-traveled trail of life.

Lorre goes on:  "I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness."  Translation:  Charlie is living in a dream world.

There are other gems, but Lorre ends by writing, "The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace.  Or perhaps more accurately, Screw Grace, I am so outta here!" 

As for writing, "I am so outta here!" could be Lorre talking or it could be what Lorre thinks Charlie is saying. 

The more we think about it, it seems he's referring to Charlie, but either way, what really seems "outta here" is "Two and a Half Men."

Sounds familiar. Now where have I heard that intellectual narcissist ego style rant before? Gee, producer Chucko sounds a lot like uh...Charlie...only without the booze and drugs! Folks, these are the kind of people you sell your soul to to deal with Hollywood. Only in this case the clean guy is even nuttier than the wasted one. You should read the rest of his Vanity Cards. They read like a cry for help from a serious neurotic. Any shrink would argue that this guy is a classic nebbish...or the head case Sheen was working for for 8 years! Oops, he just played the vanity card for a law suit! Cach-ing!

OMG........Mr. Lorre, let Mr. Sheen dig his own grave, don't lower yourself........he's doing a fine job all by himself. Let go of the show and move on, you can re-hire all the innocent employees who lost their jobs due to Sheen's selfishness on your next hit.......Please, take the high road here, we're rooting for you and your beautiful wife and those beautiful kids of yours........urgh, I am SO sick of seeing Charlie's kids in the arms of porn stars, it truly sickens me as a mother.

If what Chuck Lorre states is subject to interpretation as TMZ is doing here, his message is lost and there is no point to it in the first place.

Chuck Lorre is a lost individual, it seems. He clearly doesn't want anyone to KNOW what he thinks about any of this and this well veiled message is proof.

I believe he left the door open to do this show. If not, he would have been very clear and state it was in fact, the end of the show clearly.

I think very little of this man who is a professional writer with no available scripts to finish his committment. I believe his slacking off is why they folded it for the season. Charlie was clearly available and able to finish it.

I don't think we need a vanity card from Chuck Lorre to tell us that Two and a Half Men is over (at least with Charlie Sheen playing a role in it). After listening to Sheen's insanity for the past several days, I think most of us understand the finality of his connection to the show.

Chuck Lorre only cares about his next big hit. He posted in a vanity card he wasn't sure what he was getting into when he started working on three shows at once. He now realizes he couldn't handle it, and Charlie gave him the excuse to dump, "Men" when it got to tough. He can now concentrate on "Big Bang Theory" because he knows that is where the money is for the next 5 years.

..and we needed TMZ to interpret Mr. Lorre's statement, why?

Oh, right. Because TMZ feels its readers don't read at 12th grade level. Duh!

Lorre is as intellectually pretentious as Sheen.
These two idiots were made for each other.

I've been a fan of Charlie since he was in the movie "Wall Street" and "Platoon". It's always kind of un-nerving to see what years and years of heavy drug use does to people.

They're just not the same people they used to be. It makes them all weirded out and creepy sounding. They usually have all these wild ideas like they've been living in a dreamworld or acting like the character in the movie "Pink Floyd: The Wall".

Maybe Charlie can get his act together enough to still do his show, but I bet most of the time he talks and acts a lot weirder than he used to when he was in his 20s.

I bet Charlie really does scare young children and animals like Piers Morgan said on his show tonight. Charlie probably has that drugged out look on his face most of the time. He's had years of practice with that drugged out look on his face.

Oh Please CS went to the Bahama's so he could party away from cameras.He isn't clean by a long shot look at his right nostril in those interviews compared to his left.Can we say snort much? His constant ranting show he in in a manic episode common in drug users who think they have been exposed so they blow off and blame everyone but them self for what is happening trying to make out like they are the victim.

Never watched 2 1/2 men because can't stand CS and his ego which need to constantly be feed as we now see.
