Tired of Charlie Sheen? Block Him From Your Browser

Are you getting sick of winning, tiger blood, Adonis DNA, perfect and bitchin' lives, winning, trolls, defeat being not an option, bangin' seven-gram rocks, winning, loving/hating violently, bi-winning here a win there a win everywhere a win win, and drugs called Charlie Sheen who are by the way WINNING?

There is a cure for Charlie Sheen media saturation, friends, and it comes in the form of a browser extension.

Tinted Sheen, the Charlie Sheen Browser Blocker, blacks out all mentions of Sheen and his increasingly un-entertaining shenanigans—including photos of the once-handsome actor and catchphrases like #winning. It literally slaps a black rectangle over Mr. Tiger Blood, thus ridding any unwanted Sheen from your screen.

The add-on works with Firefox and Chrome, and is based on the amusingly named Shaved Bieber app (which performs a similar public service, but focuses on Justin Bieber’s inexplicable Internet ubiquity instead).

"Sorry Charlie, but it is time to leave the Internet and go back to your porn family. Let this be the hangover cure for the #winning buzz from which everyone is still recovering," say its developers, the Free Art and Technology Lab.

I admit I've been as fascinated with Sheen's bizarre behavior as anyone else, but at this point, I have no idea if he's completely freaking nuts or playing us all so he can parlay this attention into a paycheck. I do know that kooky sayings get really old when you hear them for the billionth time ("DUH, WINNING"), and his webcast performances show a man in need of many things, including a stylist and a writing team.

Will I block him from my browser? Well ... to be honest, probably not yet. But it's nice to know the option's there.

How about you, will you give Tinted Sheen a try?
