Craig Ferguson’s Decision to Not Make Charlie Sheen Jokes


I missed this on Craig Ferguson on Monday night, but clearly we’re not through the making-jokes-about-Charlie-Sheen woods yet, so it still seems very pertinent. At the start of Monday’s show, Craig talked about how uncomfortable everyone making fun of Sheen makes him, and explained why he wouldn’t be participating in what’s really the biggest piece of late-night joke fodder to come along in a long time. He makes a very strong point. If just sheer Sheen fatigue hasn’t turned you off to jokes about the guy (seriously, if there was a way to block any tweet with “Sheen” in it from my Twitter timeline, I would do it in a heartbeat), this might just do it.
