Article first published as Charlie Sheen – Making A Stand For All Addicts! on Technorati. I published it there first, and here again for my blog readers. Enjoy!
To all alcoholics, coke addicts & sex maniacs out there, when you feel like the world is out to get you, and your imaginary friend has decided to take a time out, remember, you have the man with the tiger blood fighting the good fight; okay scratch that, he’s just fighting, full stop!
Every section of society needs a voice, and addicts have now found one in the unlikely form of newly fired, Guinness Book of Record holder, Charlie Sheen. Yes, he is mentioned in a book, apart from Facebook and every hookers black book.
For those belonging to the Twitterverse, Sheen made history by capitalizing on his latest string of f*** ups, by creating a Twitter account; and Tweeples went crazy! Before you could say ‘warlock’, Sheen was getting 60,000 followers; and this was before he even posted his first tweet! 25 hours later and a couple of tweets, he had reached a million followers.
Believe it or not, he even started a Twitter trending topic “#Tigerblood.” And just like all highs, you’re going to have to come crashing down sometime or other, and in this case, Sheen’s tweets may have cost him his custody deal with ex-wife Brooke Mueller, where he twitted, “not sure what all the legal noise is about… just verbally reached a deal with B. no court mon. yay..yet the opposition felt it necessary to still harass me with old gibberish..odd? perhaps. transparent? you betcha’!”
Will the mafia hire him already? Honestly, what better poster boy (make that old man) do you need? Sheen promotes real life prostitution, sex, alcohol and drugs better than any big screen Bronx speaking peddler ever could.
Speaking of which, I reckon Sheen and Lindsay Lohan would make the perfect match. She – blonde, young and running lose. He – greying, old and just plain lose. Match made in Hustler heaven. Just think of all the hell these two could stir up together. Hollywood PR people, make it happen!
