Tired of the Charlie Sheen scene? Who can blame you? The ranting actor appears to be everywhere these days, even in places where you'd hope and pray he wouldn't show up. (Also see: In one day on Twitter, Charlie Sheen tops 1 million followers. Because that's how you WIN. Fools.) Well, consider your problem solved! No, that doesn't mean the media will stop covering him. Are you crazy? There are page views and ratings involved here, folks. Instead, you now can download an app that will expunge any mention or sight of Mr. Adonis DNA. "Tinted Sheen, the Charlie Sheen Browser Blocker," is a plugin for Firefox and Chrome that its maker, Free Art & Technology, promises to banish Sheen from the Internet presence of anyone #winning enough to download it. Duh! (Not sure why there's no version for people using Microsoft's Internet Explorer, unless it's a karma thing.) The plug-in already has been downloaded by more than 7,000 people who apparently can't handle the incoherent "gold" that rolls effortlessly from Sheen's tongue. You can download Tinted Sheen here and say goodbye forever to the bad actor. Now that's the best plan in the room! Let's hope they're working on a Sarah Palin blocker next.
