Is Matt LeBlanc acting like an uncle? These ‘Friends’ reunion memes say “yes”
The Friends reunion on HBO Max was everything fans wanted it to be. It had familiar sets, timeless memories, and a lot of new faces literally. The Friends reunion, which celebrated its long-lasting legacy as one of the most popular sitcoms ever created, brought back the original cast nealy seventeen years after the series finale aired.
However, while all of the cast looked & seemed great, even Matthew Perry who knowingly faced a long struggle with drug & alcohol abuse, most fans were surprised to see Matt LeBlanc and his, shall we say, small weight gain? It’s fine. He’s old & happy – just let the man live! Let’s celebrate the loveable Joey Tribbiani and his drunk uncle-like appearance with some of the best memes on Twitter.

It’s always uncomfortable to sing in front of family & friends . . . see what we did there?

Uncles are always observers at the standard wedding function. What else are they good for besides eating & drinking?

Based on the Friends reunion we wouldn’t be surprised if Matt LeBlanc really is a PE teacher these days.

It’s also funny how the children only ever thank the mom, too.
