Every Time Charlie Is Illiterate on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Poor Charlie Kelly. Although he thinks of himself as the Gang’s wild card, in practice he gets stuck with all of the rat-bashing, bathroom-cleaning, and trash-burning duties on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. With that much Charlie Work to do, it’s no surprise that he hasn’t had the chance to work on his basic literacy skills; in the words of the Lawyer, he has a tenuous grasp of the English language.
