The Gang Beats Boggs – “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”

Equation for you: Consuming 70 beers + an enclosed space = an amazing episode from the Sunny gang. It’s just mathematics. The opening salvo of season 10 delivers one of the better episodes of the latter seasons of IASIP, albeit not without its issues.  The episode opens with the gang boarding a flight  wearing white shirts that state a certain number of beers. The lone exception is Mac who has appointed himself Commissioner of the Contest after losing an unseen chugging contest prior to boarding.

Dee sets an early lead by consuming 29 beers before takeoff but by no way is this a winning strategy.  Within minutes of reaching cruising altitude Dee is sleeping like a little drunken baby resting her head on her seat mates shoulder.  We meet up with Charlie who is trailing behind Dee who for some reason thinks Wade Bogg’s is dead (he is very much alive) and insists that he is drinking in his memory. This gag reaches its pinnacle when a very inebriated Charlie hallucinates that a dead Wade Boggs is cheering him on and shares a drink with him.  

Dennis and Frank gleefully continue down the dark paths they traveled up to Season 10. Dennis’ particular brand of narcissistic serial killer traits are on full display.  His monologue on the only passenger who meets his sexual criteria on the plane is especially disturbing and uproarious (“if she were standing you’d notice she’s got no panty line, giving me about five extra seconds to enter her swiftly before she realizes I am not the answer to her problems”).  This meticulous speech is made even funnier when Dennis ends up joining the Mile High Club with the desert trash he said was far below him.  She turns out to be not only insane but also a stage 5 clinger causing Dennis to disembark in North Dakota. Frank is best in small doses and here he mostly a non-entity in the contest and just pops up to make disgusting but hilarious statements.  Whether it’s asking the flight attendant if they provide condoms or taking care of the Frat boy who is also consuming the finite supply of beer contained on the DC-10.

The contest ends with the lone surviving member, Charlie (Frank ended up passing out in the isle after chugging beer 41 and Dee crapped out on the luggage carousel after consuming her 71st beer), hitting the only ball that Mac brought with him so he declares Charlie the winner of the contest.  My only issues with this episode were the stretches of logic with the gang definitely committing a myriad of felonies and not one mention of Charlie’s phobia of leaving Philadelphia but it was so funny that this did not stop me from enjoying it.

  • certainly like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to inform the truth then again I will surely come back again.

  • Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

  • Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

  • I have read a few excellent stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot effort you set to make this sort of wonderful informative web site.

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and much more!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
