It's Always Fatty in Philadelphia
I first heard about 'Fat Mac' a few months ago and I just recently came upon the new promo for this season's "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It is centered around Rob McElhenney's weight gain of fifty pounds for the character Mac. Apparently there is nothing more to this than McElhenney thinking it would be funny.
As one of my favorite shows, I don't see a need for this to happen. I don't discourage it though. Fat jokes tend to be funny as long as they are not too abusive (as seen on "King of Queens" for nine seasons. Seriously, Leah Remini's character was down right brutal.) I look forward to 'the gang's' take on 'fat mac'.
