"I probably took more drugs than anybody could survive. I was banging 7 gram rocks. Because that’s how I roll. I have one speed. I have one gear: Go."
Sheen’s a meme, cause he wins that way.
Besides the New Yorker parody here, The Guardian has a Charlie Sheen v Muammar Gaddafi: Who’s Line is it Anyway quiz. Sample phrase: “I have defeated this earthworm with my words – imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists.”
New York Magazine is in the game. It also upped the ante by including Glenn Beck. Color it crazy roulette. Sample quote: “You want to call me crazy? Go to hell. Call me crazy all you want!”
We don’t think we have to.

Web serial Vag Magazine has pretty much nailed the complexities and intrigue of one of New York City’s most coveted industries.

In these hilarious webisodes, third-wave feminists Fennel, Sylvie and Bethany use the proceeds from their Etsy store to start their own magazine Vag, in the offices of Gemma, a fashion magazine “that has fallen, as all patriarchal regimes eventually will,” says Fennel.

The plotlines and characters are uproarious, with staffers like Reba, a legend of gonzo feminist pop culture journalism,  Heavy Flo, a vapid hero of the roller derby circuit, and oh…also Meghan, a holdover from Gemma, and the only one who knows anything about magazines.

Deftly put together by comedians from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York, the Vag Magazine saga is a self-aware but sidesplitting takedown of Brooklyn hipsterism, feminist cliches, and the drama of life at a bi-monthly rag.
