Ricky Gervais' clean break

The news that Doherty has slipped - again - won't impress Ricky Gervais, who's been snorting derisively at the praise the Lohans and Spears get for kicking addictions:

"I feel sorry for those people who don't know any better, have these addictions and go off the rails (but) it makes me laugh when someone says, 'I haven't taken drugs for three years,' and they get a round of applause.

"Most people haven't taken drugs their whole life! It's like, 'I haven't murdered for a week - way to go!' I'm one of those people who think, 'Pull yourself together!'"

Yes, it's true that, Ricky. It's almost like they're glamourising drugs by turning the struggle against them into something noble. You know, like making a video game about drug dealers might be thought of as doing.

[Thanks to Michael M for the link to the quote]

Isn't Ricky's quote almost a direct steal from a Chris Rock routine? The one about expecting credit for something you're supposed to do?

"'I ain't never been to jail!'. What do you want, a cookie?!"

video of the routine here (about 2.30 in) (Warning: Contains 'Not safe for work language')

it's a great chris rock quote from a legendary routine butchered to fit a different topic that makes a million times less sense to use it for. i have as much disdain for lohan et al as anyone else but suggesting that ex-drug addicts should never be commended for a prolonged period of non-use, regardless of circumstance, is...well, about as cluelessly mean-spirited as most of gervais' work, actually. the man is a colossal dickhead
