Say what? Gadhafi or Sheen?

Pop quiz today. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Libyan dictator, Moammar Gadhafi, and star of CBS sit-com Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen have both been having some trouble at the office. They’ve also both taken quite frequently to the airwaves, and I’m not entirely convinced they’re not the same person. Below is a list of 30 quotes. Who uttered which statement? Gadhafi or Sheen? Answers revealed tomorrow.

One thought on “Say what? Gadhafi or Sheen?

  1. In case you actually attempted the quiz, the answers are pretty simple. The first 15 quotes are Gadhafi and the last 15 are Charlie Sheen. But nearly all are interchangeable. And frightening to think that really Gadhafi’s are saner, especially if you compare them to ones that I didn’t include, like “I have a 10,000 year-old brain and a 7 year-old’s boogers.”
