Roseanne Barr is not known for holding her tongue if she has a beef with you. "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre found that out first hand this week, when he allegedly used one of Roseanne's jokes on Thursday night's show, and she found out about it. Barr took to her Twitter account to blast the producer and actor Ashton Kutcher, who uttered the joke, according to Entertainment Weekly on Oct. 5.
The joke Roseanne accuses Chuck Lorre of stealing is one she's been using in her act since 2006. "I'm wet where I’m supposed to be dry and dry where I’m supposed to be wet", in referring to menapause.
The "Two and a Half Men" version was changed slightly to refer to the same condition applying to an elderly man, played by comic icon Carl Reiner.
One of Roseanne's tweets Friday read that if she can't sue Chuck Lorre for the theft of the joke, she was going to force herself to watch his show and steal his jokes, even though not many are funny.
Roseanne used her typical colorful language on Twitter Friday, really ripping into Lorre and Kutcher. But then she dialed it back a bit and admitted she loves Chuck, who got his big break when he was hired as a supervising producer on Barr's 1990s hit "Roseanne".
Roseanne tweeted that she forgives Chuck Lorre and Ashton Kutcher, saying it was probably one of their writers who stole her joke.
