Charlie Sheen rant gets the Internet a-giddy

By Melissa Bell

(Medium Large)

It's been a field day for Internet hilarity, thanks to Charlie Sheen's radio rant. The Washington Post made a quote randomizer. Vanity Fair made a surprisingly difficult quiz asking readers to guess which quote belongs to Sheen or Moammar Gaddafi. The Medium Large blog created a "Charlie Can Haz Rehab" mashup of Sheen quotes and kittens. And a YouTuber helped CBS out with a quick finale for "Two and a Half Men."

Internet, you amuse me.

(Thanks, Doris!)

You're right, what a day! I have a psychotherapy blog where I put up a piece about Sheen's rant from a psychological perspective and got three times as many site visitors as normal. Here's my take on the pathology behind that rant:

when we were all small, way before the newfound delicacy of disciplining children was instigated, a real good spanking and timeout worked wonders.

I don't think he's too old for it.

Keifer Sutherland had his issues too, but he got his head on straight......

I will never watch this moron again on TV. What a lunatic. He is so full of himself he can't see. Typical Hollywood idiot. He'll crash and burn in the end and we won't have to worry about it.
