FUSHICHA, Ind. -- Only a few weeks after its demise, the popular TV sitcom Friends has been entirely forgotten, according to a poll and random interviews.

More than eighty-seven percent polled responded "What show?" when asked if they missed the TV show Friends.

The remaining people polled remembered the program but many of them made ugly faces when the title was mentioned.

A surprising ninety-two percent polled could not remember one of the characters' names.

"This could be bad news for syndication," said a TV expert recently convicted of pirating segments of Leave It To Beaver.

"It's all nonsense," said Meryl McBridalstrap, who has written a book on the influence Friends had on the 2000 Olympic games. "These people are liars. They never wanted the program to be a success and now they are getting back at it."

"Not true," responded the poll's organizer, Bennard Souflee. "We purposely chose mentally challenged people to participate in the study and gave them each copies of the show's theme."

"The affect of the show in the history of TV will be astounding," said TV historian Luke Watchspring. "In fact, it will soon be so popular that more people will remember where they were when the last episode aired than where they were when President Kennedy was shot."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
