Chuck Lorre and the Law of Threes

Chuck Lorre is a mad genius. Chuck who? If, like me, you're a fan of Two and a Half Men or The Big Bang Theory and own a Tivo, you probably know already. He's the guy who writes those awesome vanity cards that appear ever-so-briefly at the end of each show. If not, go to the aforelinked web site and start reading. Didn't I tell ya? A mad genius...

Actually, I feel like a big cheater reading the vanity cards on a web site. But, hey, I didn't have a Tivo (or even a VCR) back when his other shows, like Dharma & Greg, were going concerns. So I'm doing it anyway.

And right there in vanity card #1 he mentions the Law of Three. Awesome. That there Law of Three crops up everywhere, don't it? Apparently even in comedy. (Some call it the Rule of Three instead. Whatever works for you.) This is what I'm talking about. Genius.

This is why Chuck Lorre is on my very short list of Hollywood People I'd Actually Like to Meet. Come to think of it, he probably has a lot of time on his hands right now. Chuck, buddy, you should come to Connecticut and check out the freaky snowwoman in our front yard right now. She'd make a great vanity card, but I'm too lazy to figure out how to take a picture before she melts. The first beer is on me.
