If you’re a Friends fan then you’ll remember Janice and her iconic ear-piercing laugh.
Fancy a reminder? Here you go…
The laugh is so memorable that fans can even hear it from a photo of her.
Recently, a Twitter user tweeted a photo of Janice (played by actor Maggie Wheeler) and everyone who saw it immediately cringed.
The photo has gone viral, having received over 82,000 retweets and 163,000 likes on Twitter at the time of writing.
Fans of the show are all connecting over Twitter over the photo and one thing they all seem to agree on is the fact that Janice’s laugh is unforgettable even after all these years.
One fan said: “I can hear this picture.”
Another tweeted: “I hear her laugh from this picture and it’s
literally making me squirm. If I had her laugh as my alarm clock, I’d never be
late cause I’d jump out of bed, out of her house.”
A third added: “I was just idling, staring at
the screen and I saw this picture. An annoying laugh akin to Fran Drescher’s
filled my head. WTF. I barely remember this character! How?”
Janice was Chandler Bings ex-girlfriend in the
show, famous for her nasal voice, very loud and very annoying laugh and the catchphrase ‘OH. MY. GAWD’, which fans can probably also hear in their heads as they read this (sorry about that).
The fact she was no shrinking violet made her exaggerated New York mannerisms even more clear – we were left under no illusions as to why Chandler’s balls would famously ‘jump back inside’ his body at the mere sound of her voice.
However, Janice herself seemed oblivious to everyone’s irritation whenever she laughed – arguably the most haunting sound EVER – which somehow rendered her impervious to her ex’s unguarded revulsion.

Friends was absolutely massive in its 90s/early-00s heyday and had a
whopping 10 seasons, with a total of 236 episodes.
It still has a huge fan base to this day and now that it’s on Netflix younger generations are also getting into it – although some millennials are less than impressed by its content, two decades on.
Still, shows you how far we’ve come when you consider how progressive the show was considered at the time. Wonder what we’ll be saying about Fresh Meat in 20 years’ time…?
