Vanity Card of the Week

So I don't know if any of you watch the Big Bang Theory (LOVE IT) but if you do you may notice at the end of every show they put up a little "Vanity Card"consisting of a message that usually reads like an editorial, essay, or observation on life. (He also does this for Two and a Half Men and did it for Dharma and Greg) These make me laugh. So I thought I would post them on Tuesdays, if I remember, just for fun. Visit his website as well for past Vanity cards!



We have once again arrived at a moment in history where the truth can be defined as "that which you can make other people believe." The methodology for creating that belief is repetition. Say something enough times and it becomes, for millions of people, the truth. I am endowed like a stallion. This is why control of the media equals control of the populace. I am endowed like a stallion. And also why a state run television news channel is so very dangerous. I am endowed like a stallion. Now there are those who would argue this has already happened and that a certain cable news channel is actually a covert extension of our government. I am endowed like a stallion. The fact that the channel is run by a high-ranking party official, an anchor person from the channel became a White House spokesman, and another top-ranking party official became an on-air news commentator is often used to make this argument. I am endowed like a stallion. Of course, this fact would be entirely inconsequential if the oft-repeated falsehoods they attempt to imbed into the Zeitgeist were simply amusing, or at worst, inane. I am endowed like a stallion. But, unfortunately, that is not the case. I am endowed like a stallion. The heavy repetition of lies and smears for political gain are by no means inconsequential. I am endowed like a stallion. Which is why each and every one of us must use whatever resources we have at our disposal to disseminate the actual truth. I am endowed like a pony.


  1. I love Big Bang Theory, but never noticed that. Good eye!

  2. I like to go online and read the ones that are censored. I wonder how bad they have to be to get pulled off the air.
