All about the genius, his work and the celebration of misanthropy
“John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, Jr. - where are you now that we need you?”

This community is dedicated to all things Charlie Brooker and what he stands for - misanthropy, cynicism, frustration, boredom, satire, and scathing ridicule. Please feel free to discuss the various themes this brings up and/or the stuff in either Screen Burn/Wipe or his weekly Guardian columns. Alternatively, if you want to post photos and describe your latest wet dream involving CB, please go for it!

I guess this is the bit where I make some rules. Community promos are only allowed where relevant to CB and associated themes (see above if in doubt, or email me). Political debate is positively encouraged but can we keep it relatively respectful (not that I don't enjoy name-calling but if you ARE going to name-call then please make it impressive and state clearly WHY you don't agree with the other person, don't just call them a cunt). Furthermore, butthurt and grudgewank are rather silly and childish yet hugely amusing for the rest of us so do it if you must but expect to have seven types of shit ripped out of you for it (cat macros are positively encouraged for this purpose).

'As an embittered cynic, I should be programmed to vomit all over the screen at the mere sight of this, but instead, I find it strangely moving. You see, as I stare into their happy smiling faces filled with naive joie de vivre, I know they're just blissfully unaware of the crushing despair that awaits them as they venture into adulthood. The myriad disappointments, the yawning chasms of pain, the glow gnawing descent into physical decay, the sheer unrelenting horror if it all.'

Charlie on Charlie:
'Socially inept... A head like a loaf of wet bread... A face like a bloodhound's funeral... Awkward and useless... Clueless... Couldn't organise a piss-up in a pissery... A dickhead... [operating from behind] a veneer of sneering superiority'.
