Posted on

There have been a lot of jokes on Twitter about Friends and how Tony reminds everyone of Chandler's awkwardness.

That Tony Blair Christmas card pic reminds me of the Friends ep where Chandler poses for his engagement photos.

And the more you look at it, the more you realise how similar they are.

It may have been pointed out already, but the Tony Blair Christmas card reminds me of this.

Tony Blair has done such an awkward pose on his Christmas card. This is by far the worst thing he's ever done.

For some reason someone swapped Tony and Cherie's faces, creating nightmares for everyone.

WE'RE SORRY.

Some people claimed they had stripped away the filters from the photo.

Others had some fun at Rupert Murdoch's expense by putting his ex-wife Wendi Deng into the picture.

Meanwhile, one person made the best version of the card possible using emojis.

And people suggested that there were alternative uses for the card. A bit like an all-purpose card.

Technically that Tony Blair card isn't just for Christmas - it can also be used for Halloween.

Their Christmas card suggests that Cherie Blair's been dead for weeks and Tony's straining from the effort of holding up her embalmed body

Finally, somebody made this analysis and then everyone became really sad.

The saddest thing about that Blair Christmas card is the idea that he looked at it and said, "Honestly, that's the best you'll get."

Blair's Christmas card: he probably hired very skilled, expensive photographer, took many photos, had Photoshop & that was the *best* smile
