Lorre announced on Monday following an episode of Mike & Molly that he would “take a break for a few weeks” from writing his post-episode cards, saying he would instead “display a photograph of a part of my body that is entirely innocuous.” “No longer will I share some troublesome piece of my mind. Now I will share an actual piece of Chuck that is incapable of offending anyone,” he said, including a picture of his elbow to begin his new (temporary) tradition.

And it appears he’s sticking to his word. On Thursday night after The Big Bang Theory, Lorre’s vanity card was the same message, only this time it featured a picture of his knuckle. (On Lorre’s website, you have to get through a “censored” card before viewing the message.)

Lorre claimed he came to the decision after realizing his musings were “getting scrutinized and criticized” by everyone from network executives to journalists and “it’s gotten out of hand.”
