This man has now apologised saying he loves animals, owning three dogs and a fish pond himself, claiming he ahs no idea what came over him. At least some perpetrators of contemporary violence can hold their hands up and admit when they’ve made a mistake.
FRIENDS COMEBACK! (Aoibhínn)
Rumours have been circulating the internet for a while now (in fact probably since the series ended in 2004) that our favourite sitcom, Friends will be making a comeback. US website, Star Media, highlighted the rumours stating that NBC network confirmed they are planning to launch a new ‘comeback reunion’ season of Friends in 2014. Other sources are claiming this as nonsensical rubbish, but NBC bosses haven’t actually denied the report. I’m not sure what to believe, although it will be 10 years since the series ended so it would be the perfect opportunity for a reunion. Guess we’ll have to hold tight for an official announcement, if it ever comes!
