Twitter user @strnks has dreamed up a dark and twisty alternate ending to the show Friends:

In case you can’t read/make out what’s in the embedded image, it says:
I’d have ended Friends by revealing it was all the meth-addled fantasy of a homeless Phoebe as she stared through the window of Central Perk.
Every kooky aside, every episode she made everything about her, every instance of how much of an outsider she was… it all makes sense. All 10 seasons were merely her fevered imagination, projecting herself into the lives of the other 5. All she ever wanted was… Friends.
The final scene would be Phoebe walking away from Central Perk, with the Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler and Monica characters making a reference to “the crazy lady who always stares at us”. They all have different names and personalities.
Phoebe walks past a furniture store and catchers her reflection in a mirror placed in the window. The name of the store? “Ursula”
Finally she returns to the park where she sleeps in front of the fountain. A broken lamp stands next to her bench. It starts to rain. From behind, we see her put up six dirty, but brightly coloured umbrellas.
Fade to black.
Could that be any more depressing?
And…would that mean Mike really was a bag of crap?
I really like this theory, but it’s definitely too depressing for me to wish it was how it really ended.
I love fan theories! But this one would be so incredibly twisted and sad…haha.
