Item: Actor Angus T. Jones, the “half” in See-BS’ Two And A Half Men, finally woke up the other day, smelled the coffee and blasted his own show, calling it “filth”
“Jake from ‘Two and a Half Men’ means nothing. He is a nonexistent character … ,” Jones said, starting about halfway through the video above. “If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it.
“Please stop watching it; stop filling your head with filth. Please. People say it’s just entertainment. … Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, and especially with what you watch.”
Good on ‘im…right?
Well, hold the phone.
Item: Yesterday, Angus went back to sleep.
In a statement issued late Tuesday, Jones said he had the highest regard for all of the people he has worked with on the comedy, including creator Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. studio chief Peter Roth.
“I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed,” said Jones, who reportedly makes $350,000 an episode. “I never intended that.”
Fucking. Assed. Coward.
This is one of my pet peeves, Denizens, as you yourselves well know. If you’re going to say something, if you’re going to take a stand, be ready to catch the slings & arrows that are most certainly going to come your way. Don’t worry about losing your Hollyweird gig, don’t worry about being blacklisted by a bunch of perverted pissweasels, and for the sake of Cthulhu’s left nut, don’t worry that they might not like you anymore.
And for God’s sake, DON’T FUCKING BACK DOWN FROM WHAT YOU SAY if you’re going to say it! Otherwise, STFU if you don’t have the spine for it!
Damn, people like Angus Jones piss me off!

Zig Ziglar has been called home. He will be missed. While I never became as successful as Zig, I always found his messages to be inspirational and uplifting. For those in any sort of professional sales, Zig’s writings should be mandatory reading.
