In the show 'Friends' there is an exchange between Ross and Joey that goes like this:
Joey: I'm in this show called 'The Days of Our Lives'.
Ross: Dude, it's just 'Days of Our Lives'. There's no 'the'.
Sadly, I fail to see humor in this and it's most likely due to my poor understanding of the many meanings of the article 'the'.
I also think understanding this joke could make me understand how the reception of the name "The Facebook" differs from just "Facebook" (the site used to be called thefacebook.com in the past, there's even a mention of that in the movie "The Social Network").
Could you help me understand this, please?
