The Price of Tiger Blood



Go ahead: click on the above screen grab and let the information next to "Price Range" sink in for a minute.  You saw that right: tickets to see Charlie Sheen do his allegedly coked-out-and-manic thang in person will run you $93.85 (probably the balcony) or $126.55 if you live in NYC.


It's not all greed, though.  Allow me to quote from further on down the Ticketmaster page: Charlie Sheen will be donating $1.00 from each ticket for the "Charlie Sheen Live: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat [is not an Option] Tour" to the Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund. For more information on how your proceeds are being used please contact the Red Cross at www.redcross.org

That's right, kids: ONE WHOLE DOLLAR out of $126.55!  Whatta guy.

So, let's recap: dude gets spectacularly fired from his job, gains higher visibility than ever, lands book deal, and charges triple digits for the morbidly curious to gawk at his breakdown live and intimate.  I've no doubt he'll sell out or at least come close.  He pockets all this money for not having to do his job any longer, and gets to - nay, is encouraged to - party like a rock star.

Am I the only one who's beginning to get the feeling that Charlie's not actually crazy at all?
