Ahh, the curse word. There are few things in this world that can’t be spiced up by adding a good old-fashioned “fuck” in front of it. Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow, two of my favorite people in the entire world, had a little “Friends” reunion of their own last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they went head-to-head in a “Celebrity Curse-Off.” Basically, the ladies have four minutes to one-up each other with swear words. Amongst my favorite were “prick cock,” “cunt sandwich,” and “snap pants,” which obviously didn’t qualify (that Phoebe Buffay gets me every time). Maybe Courteney Cox should stay home more often, because this is pure gold.
As a huge “Friends” fan who owns all of the seasons on DVD, trivia games and Central Perk memorabilia that’s ever been produced, I love how I’m still learning fun little tidbits about the show 20 years after it first premiered.

I’m fairly certain we were created from some of the same molecules or cells or something, and these 14 GIFs perfectly demonstrate why Phoebe Buffay/Regina Phalange/Princess Consuela Bananahammock is my kindred spirit.

Only one day after learning that Manhattan will soon be welcoming a ‘Central Perk’ pop-up coffee shop to honor the anniversary of “Friends,” the show’s three leading ladies reunited and reprised their roles as Rachel, Phoebe and Monica on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Jimmy confessed to Jennifer Aniston, his guest for the evening, that he was a huge “Friends” fan and even went as far as writing a piece of fan fiction, inserting himself into the plot as Ross, which he then asked to act out with Jen. Keep reading »
