Charlie Sheen is finally in rehab! Apparently his dad asked him to go and you don’t not do what Martin Sheen asks you to do… this is POTUS we’re talking about. He says “jump”, Bradley Whitford asks “how high?” He says “quit doing blow with porn stars”, Charlie Sheen asks “ok, but how ‘bout crack with hookers?”
Now the big question is, what will happen to the price of cocaine while Charlie is in rehab? If Econ 101 taught me anything, I know that this immediate and drastic decrease in demand will surely lead to a decrease in both price and quantity of cocaine nationwide. Are we prepared to let our coke-whores snort cheap, sub-par cocaine? Should the government step in and stabilize the market by subsidizing the commodity until Charlie is back in the game? Let’s just all pray for his speedy recovery so that we don’t face yet another economic downturn.
