Chuck Lorre – Vanity Card #299

Keeping in mind that decades are arbitrary divisions of time, I thought  it might be nice to take a moment to look back and reflect on some of the  major events that took place in America during the first ten years of the  twenty-first century.

We began the 0’s, ominously, with the dot com meltdown, followed  by the tragic suicide of the sock puppet dog.

Except for the nineteen scumbags dying in several plane accidents,  nothing good happened in 2001. (If they’re spending eternity having  sex with virgins, we can only hope they’re catching, not pitching.)

Except for Jon Stewart, nothing much good happened for the next few years.

Balloon mortgages for poor people turned out to be a bad idea.
