    11 Times The "Always Sunny" Gang Was Really Fucking Innovative

    Kitten Mittens! You'll be smitten.

    11. The Ocular Pat-Down


    Episode: "The Gang Hits the Road" (Season 5)

    According to Mac, an ocular pat-down is a visual threat assessment performed by Paddy's head of security. While he never successfully performed one, his cousin Country Mac (who appears in Season 9's episode "Mac Day") has, which impresses the gang. As for Mac, the gang laughs at his attempts.

    10. Project Badass


    Episode: "Mac's Banging the Waitress" (Season 4)

    Project Badass is a series of videos of Mac performing stunts. Just like Jackass, Mac talks to the camera and explains the stunt he is about to perform. While they aren't impressive, they're still hilarious. Not to mention Dennis and Charlie believe Mac creates these videos to impress them because he's secretly in love with them.

    9. Fight Milk


    Episode: "Frank's Back in Business" (Season 8)

    What originally was supposed to be news about a company at a stockholders meeting, Mac and Charlie use as an opportunity to sell their pitch for a fitness drink called Fight Milk. The ingredients? Crows' eggs, milk, and booze.

    8. Dick Towel


    Episode: "Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens" (Season 5)

    While the gang has different ideas for merchandise for the bar, Mac comes up with the idea of a Dick Towel. He also mentions that he created the website, which is fully functional IRL.

    7. Kitten Mittens


    Episode: "Paddy's Pub: Home of the Original Kitten Mittens" (Season 5)

    Much different than Mac's dick towel, Charlie's invention is Kitten Mittens, originally Kitten Mittons due to Charlie's illiteracy, is the reason the rest of the gang begins to brainstorm their ideas for merchandising. Meeeeeeeow!

    6. Chardee MacDennis

    FX / Via

    Episode: "Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games" (Season 7)

    This is a game created by the gang (minus Frank) to play when they're bored. It includes three different levels, with a whole binder of rules, and more importantly, alcohol. No one is safe from the game, both emotionally and physically.

    5. Wine in a Can


    Episode: "The Gang Gives Frank an Intervention" (Season 5)

    Originally invented by Frank to drink in public, this invention is pure genius. Just as the title suggests, it's just wine inside a can. Simple, but truly effective.

    4. Rum Ham


    Episode: "The Gang Goes to the Jersey Shore" (Season 7)

    On vacation at the Jersey Shore, the gang goes separate ways. Frank and Mac want to relax. After Mac sends Frank to get booze, Frank returns with ham that is soaked in rum. Throughout the rest of the episode, Frank is very attached to the rum ham, but I wouldn't blame him because that sounds extremely delicious.

    3. The D.E.N.N.I.S. System


    Episode: "The D.E.N.N.I.S. System" (Season 5)

    Don't know how to be bachelor? Not to fear, Dennis Reynolds is here.

    Dennis shows the gang a voicemail from a woman who, to the obvious person, sounds like she hates him. However, according to Dennis, the woman is completely in love with him. He then proceeds to show the gang his system on how to woo women. It's extremely sociopathic.

    2. Lethal Weapon 5


    Episode: "Dee Reynolds: Shaping America's Youth" (Season 6)

    The gang making their own Lethal Weapon film is probably one of their most hilarious adventures yet. Mac and Dennis constantly switch roles, Charlie wears a blonde wig, and Frank is a villain. The only issue is, while it is used satirically, Mac uses blackface which is super offensive.

    1. Dayman

    FX / Via

    Episode: "Sweet Dee's Dating a Retarded Person" (Season 3)

    Before it became an iconic song from the musical The Nightman Cometh in Season 4, Dayman was actually created in the previous season after Mac and Frank kick Charlie out of their band. With Dennis's help and huffing glue, Charlie creates the song.
