Chuck Lorre, the executive producer of "Two and a Half Men," used a vanity card at the end of another of his shows, "The Big Bang Theory," to lament the "tough time" he has gone through recently, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
Vanity cards usually show the logo of a production company, although Lorre has used them to provide thoughts in small typeface, the article notes. He has also been using them lately to comment on Charlie Sheen, who has been engaged in a battle with his former boss, the story points out.
Lorre wrote, "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."
"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 added on the vanity card, the piece notes.
