After lead actor on ‘Two and a Half Men’, Charlie Sheen lambasted writer/creator Chuck Lorre in a radio rant late in February, Warner Bros has decided to fire him.

Sheen had also recently demanded $3 million to return to the show, this after having the show suspended due to Sheen’s rehab.

Warner Bros. executives said in a statement yesterday, “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men, effective immediately.”

Sheen is reportedly happy about this news.

According to TMZ.com, Sheen has said, “This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshisc**k again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.”

Last week ‘Two and a Half Men’ fans asked for John Stamos to replace him.

That’s a nice gift John.

Today marks what would have been Dr. Seuss’ 107th birthday.

Theodor geisel dr seuss

Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss created many characters that have delighted children around the world. His most iconic was the Grinch, and the Cat in the Hat.

Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, who managed his family’s brewery and supervised Springfield’s public park system. He attended Dartmouth College in 1921, joining the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and the Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern, a humor magazine. After being removed from extra-cuirrcicular activities because of drinking gin while National Prohibnition laws were in effect, he assumed the pen name Seuss. He later entered Lincoln College, Oxford and met and married Helen Palmer in 1927.

He submitted humorous articles to Judge, Saturday Evening Post, Vanity Fair and Liberty. He made money by working on drawing advertisements for the likes of General Electric, NBC and Standard Oil and many more. It was at this time that he wrote a few children’s books.

In WWII, he began drawing political cartoons, denouncing Hitler and Mussolini and isolationists. He then worked on posters for the Treasury Department and the War Production Board.

Later in his life, he moved to La Jolla, California and returned to creating children’s books.

Horton Hatches the Egg(1940), If I Ran the Zoo, (1950), Horton Hears a Who!(1954), If I Ran the Circus (1956),“The Cat in the Hat”How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957) and Green Eggs and Ham (1960)

in 1954, Geisel was asked to create a well loved book using 250 words that 1st graders should recognize. He returned with Cat in the Hat.

In 1968, Geisel married the woman he had been having an affair with, after his wife committed suicide the year earlier. He then devoted most of his time to writing children’s books.

President Obama named March 2nd “Read Across America” day in his honor.

Dr. Seuss died in 1991 at the age of 87.
