Chuck Lorre explains his Ben Affleck joke in 'Mike & Molly' vanity card

Everything you ever wanted to know about Chuck Lorre is in his vanity cards at the end of the producer's shows. And apparently everything you ever wanted to know about Ben Affleck's genitals is in Monday's (Jan. 27) vanity card for "Mike & Molly" and "Mom" (Lorre occasionally uses the same card for the two shows).

Spread the word!" Affleck exclaims in his own speech.The... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/chuck-lorre-explains-his-ben-affleck-joke-in-mike-and-molly-vanity-card.html
