Julie Bowen's Twitter followers received quite the tweet from the Modern Family star when she wrote on Thursday, "How do you know when you have herpes? Asking for a friend."
Fortunately, "friend" did not actually refer to the 44-year-old actress. What's more, the tweet itself was simply a joke. Courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel.
You see, when Bowen appeared on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, she wound up playing a game called "Tweeter Totter."
The way it worked was Bowen and Kimmel rode a teeter totter, as a wheel with a variety of phrases was spun. When the wheel stopped, whoever was at the top of the teeter totter was forced to tweet whatever phrase the wheel landed on.
