Why How I Met Your Mother is Literally Friends

Two of the biggest sitcoms of our time are virtually the same – just repurposed for different generations! This proves it:

Ross and Chandler meet in college before becoming bros for life – the same goes for Ted and Marshall.

Nobody has any idea what Chandler or Barney actually do to make money.

Ross and Monica’s mother and Lily’s mother are played by literally the same person.

Phoebe and Ted’s names are used by pornstars.

Ted and Ross are perpetual grammar Nazis.

Joey and Barney end up officiating the Chandler-Monica and Marshall-Lily weddings.

Lily keeps her pregnancy secret at Punchy’s wedding, while Rachel keeps her’s a secret at the Chandler-Monica bash.

Ross and Ted are both professors… who end up dating one of their students.
