Chandler Bing's Nipples - Data
processing executive Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) on the sitcom
FRIENDS/NBC/1994-2004 was endowed with, not two, by three nipples.
Because his "nubbin" (what he called it) was such a curiosity,
when people learned of the third nipple, they asked questions like
"What's it shaped like?", "Is there a hair on it?" and "Can you
flick it?" Tired of such questions, Chandler got creative and told
them "Pressure on the third nipple opens the delivery entrance to
Narnia." Chandler finally had his birth anomaly removed [an
nubbinectomy"] in his late twenties, and is now "without nubbin."
On the episode "The One With Phoebe's Ex Partner" Chandler dated
an ex-girlfriend of Joey Tribianni named Ginger who had a wooden
leg. After some soul searching, Chandler decided it didn't matter
about her leg.
Unfortunately, when the girl felt Chandler's "nubbin" beneath
his shirt, she immediately freaked and pulled away from him him. An
excerpt of the scene follows:
Do you have three nipples?
Well, y'know, two regulars ... [clears
throat] and, uh, one that barely qualifies as a ...
[CHANDLER resumes kissing, but GINGER pulls away and gets up
from the chair] Uh, what?
[gathering her belongings and putting on her
coat) Nothing, y'know, I - I just remembered I have to
You, uh, you have [laughs] you have to leave,
now? How come?
well, it's nubbin [correcting herself] NOTHING, um ...
y'know what, I'm, I'm, I'll see you later, okay. [GINGER
leaves the apartment and shuts the door on CHANDLER, and as
soon as the door is shut, she quivers and gets grossed out
at the thought of CHANDLER's nubbin).
TRIVIA NOTE: Krusty the Klown on the cartoon series THE SIMPSONS/FOX/1990+
has a superfluous third nipple on the right side of his chest.
