Chuck Lorre

Do you know who Chuck Lorre is? No? I didn’t either, but I was watching The Big Bang Theory and I noticed something. Just after the credits rolled, up popped a screen where I distinctly saw the word ‘penis’. I did a double take but it was too late.

I didn’t think about it for a while until I was watching another episode and I saw the same screen flash up. Well, I saw the screen but I didn’t see the ‘penis’, and so my curiosity was piqued.

I did some googling. Chuck Lorre, the producer of the show, produces something completely unique called ‘vanity cards’. He’s also a producer on MomTwo and a Half MenMike & MollyDharma & Greg, Cybill and Grace Under Fire, and they also feature vanity cards, and he’s the only person he knows of who does this. He won’t add one every episode. In fact, to date, he’s ‘only’ written 457 (including some image and audio ones). Occasionally they’re censored and he gets mad and posts the censored version on the screen, with the uncensored on his website –

Finally, I tracked down the ‘penis’ card. Here you go.

I was hooked, and I started to screenshot my favourites, but only from The Big Bang Theory because that’s the only show I watch of his, and it would sort of feel like cheating to see the others.

This one was censored and I can’t say I’m surprised, but it’s fabulous!

This was the most recent and raised a chuckle.

I won’t bore (hopefully I’m not doing that anyway!) with any more, but if they’ve tickled your fancy, you really should pop over to his website. Here it is again –!
