Since 1997, fans of some of the most popular sitcoms ever
broadcast — The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half
Men, Mike & Molly and Dharma &
Greg — have been granted a fleeting glimpse each week
into the unfettered and uncompromising mind of the
incredibly prolific creative force behind those series,
Chuck Lorre. That's because Lorre devotes exactly one second
of airtime per show to expressing his deepest thoughts at
the end of the credits on his now-infamous vanity cards,
which for many years could only be enjoyed by freeze-framing
on a VCR and squinting to read the tiny, wobbling words.
Now, for the first time ever, hundreds of Lorre's witty and
insightful musings have been gathered together in a
limited-edition, slipcase book from Chuck Lorre
himself that reveals a hilarious, thought-provoking and
scandalous body of work unlike any other creative endeavor.
Veering from philosophical treatises to personal revelations
to the occasional furious diatribe, Lorre never shies away
from controversy — even in the face of network censorship,
as has often happened.
But never fear: Every word on the original vanity cards
included in this curated selection is here — even the
censored texts that never made it to air. Enhanced with sly,
ingenious illustrations and designs that capture the
off-kilter essence of Lorre's bite-sized dispatches, What
Doesn't Kill Us Makes Us Bitter will change the way you
think about life, the universe and TV — or at least it'll
save your eyesight.
