This may be the darkest Friends fan theory yet

Since Friends left our TVs in 2004, things have been a bit quiet. Some people have filled their time finding disturbing theories they purport to be the truth.

There was the rumour that Joey is a real person cast in the TV show Friends, for example.

And the one about Rachel being a plant.

Reddit user lolalodge just casually puts it out there that maybe Monica and Joey were both addicted to drugs for the whole ten-year run.

She explains in her post, titled “Monica has a closet cocaine addiction and Joey is a pothead” that Monica is a chef, and...

most people that work in the restaurant industry tend to gravitate towards some sort of substance since the job is very high stress.

There’s also the fact she’s well paid, and lives in a rent-controlled apartment.

She writes:

Monica also lives in a rent controlled apartment that she illegally sublets from her dead grandmother, she even has a roommate to share the bills with.

She doesn't own an obscene amount of clothes or anything, doesn't go out to bars regularly, so where exactly does her money go?

And the answer?

Cocaine, obviously.

Cocaine, which she stashes in the closet by the big windows, which is why when Chandler opens it in the last season, she flips out because she doesn't want him to find her cocaine stash.

It also explains why Monica is so high energy and high strung.

And, she adds, how she lost weight so quickly as a teenager.

And lolalodge leaves no stone unturned, turning her accusations to Joey – who she says smokes weed all day.

She explains:

That's why he's always hungry, can eat a ton of food and is constantly napping and is kind of spaced out and a lot of what other people say goes "whoosh" right over his head.

It's certainly a theory, if a 'moo point'.
