Someone's about to make $14,000 off Charlie Sheen's 9/11 Truther conspiracy theory
"Lights! Camera! Action! Film you and your friends re-enacting Charlie Sheen's explosive open letter to the President and submit for your chance to win $14K, and other great prizes!"
Wow, where was the Ministry when this offer was made? We have credit card bills to pay! Plus who doesn't love other great prizes?
Or conspiracy films!
"The only aspect of this piece that had to be manufactured," Sheen says, "were the president's words."
Oh. Yeah, well, there's that.
But, hey, so, um, yeah! It's almost the big day! The winner, who may or may not know who he or she is, will be announced Tuesday on "The Alex Jones Show," which appears to be a largely Internet-based radio broadcast. And Charlie Sheen will be on the show!
"Alex would like that first prize winner to appear on the show with Charlie (we will try to contact you before the announcement). Please check with your email or YouTube message system, etc., and stand by to be contacted in the event of winning pending final judgement. Until then… stay tuned."
No, the Ministry of Gossip didn't review all of Mr. Sheen's footnoted research, so yeah, commenters, ya got us there.
We just wanted to celebrate the occasion of some lucky budding filmmaker getting the chance to pay down some low-five-figures debt.
