Friends Set In Tennessee

Friends was set in New York City, at the characters apartments as well as at the coffee shop Central Perk (what a damned clever name!). Friends was iconic in so many ways. Story lines, the characters and situations made the show so very memorable.
However, what if the show had been set elsewhere? Say in the south, in a place like Tennessee? How much different would Friends have been with rednecks as the cast? How different would the story lines, the cast professions, the humor have been? Tennessee Friends, yes the idea is growing on me…
Sure, Monica Geller would still be a chef, erm, or caterer, or cook, whatever, at some diner, serving up her famous Kraft Mac and Cheese.
Phoebe would still be odd, but probably more in an Ellie May Clampett / Annie Oakley sort of way, “rastlin bears” and getting into blindfolded shooting contests. “Now y’all watch this. Hold my beer, k?”
Joey, well, he’d work as a postman, creeping on peoples houses with his trademark “How y’all doing,” and he’d moonlight as an aspiring Nashville star.
Ross, would be the gay auto mechanic, lovelorn, pining for Chandler.
Rachel, she’d work the hilariously filthy local dive bar come titty bar. It’s not really a titty bar, but. well, once in a while the girls just gotta let loose. Love that part.
That leaves Chandler, the Sheriff’s deputy. “Spit-ding. Ah hell, got it on my shirt again!” His love interest would of course be Janice, the way-too-much-make-up-worn-out-around-the-block-25,000-times bar fly. Her tag line would be “Oh Dear Lord, Chandler, Chandler Bing…”
And Central Perk? Fogettabouit, that would be something like The Well, or maybe The Wishing Well. And naturally at least once an episode one of the characters would wish to God they’d have a change of fortune, that would in some way turn out to be ironic. It’s be like Andy Griffith Show meets Mama’s Family.
You know something, I’d watch that show. Hey, producers, have your people call my people, we’ll do lunch.
“I’ll be there for y’all…”
Oh, and you Tennessee folks getting all riled up, I love the south. My family springs from the south. Just not from Tennessee…

What do redneck lotto winners buy? I’d guess a beer factory would lead the list, impractical as that may seem (super practical if you’re a redneck), but somewhere on down the line you’re likely to find a purchase like this. Maybe I’m being unfair to redneck lotto winners, maybe this guy is a chauffeur (spelled Chofer here in banjoland), but then again maybe not. This could well be the town mayor and his ride. Or maybe the governor of some impoverished state, like California. Or maybe a senator is visiting his mistress for some much needed lovin, after all these cousins ain’t made whoopee since the last family reunion. At any rate, there’s a reason rednecks get the shaft, and an image like this doesn’t help.

This is a Redneck Thanksgiving. My God, it looks so realistic, right down to the wife beaters and cigarette at the dinner table! In a Norman Rockwell style, this picture captures rednecks in turkey day action. Except for the KFC that is. However it could be a little more accurate. Where’s the PBR? (pabst blue ribbon). Oh, wait, there is one can of it. Anyway, happy thanksgiving, regardless of whether there are cars hidden in your tall grass out front or not. I hope it can be as fine as this one is for these good folks.
