It’s easy to watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and wonder what it would be like to be one of that deplorable gang or hang with them for the holidays, but the truth is that few of us could survive the ordeal of running with that crew, and none of us could put up with their antics in close quarters on Christmas day; as these moments will prove.
They are not good at toasts.
It takes some careful consideration to come up with the right words to sum up a family gathering during the holidays. The words in the above clip are not the right ones, but the post-toast reaction might speak more to the trapped inner emotions of your guest than you’d like to admit.
Their Christmas carols will be off-key and ill-timed.
Singing about chestnuts roasting on an open fire while standing in front of a piano sipping from some hot buttered rum? A Christmas card in motion. Sitting on the stoop butchering Biz Markie’s ‘Just a Friend’ while sipping nog from a brown paper bag while your neighbors try to enjoy their quiet family time on Christmas morning? Not so much.
