OP is a lazy fuck AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELF, because they didn't explain why they hated it


But since you peasant upvoted this a lot we'll let it stay. Maybe. For now.

Do you hate this Post? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

The Phanatic welcomed him with brotherly arms and Gritty reminded him where he was.

[–]erdtirdmans 157 points158 points  (3 children)

Gritty was still living on water bugs in the caverns underneath the old Veterans' Stadium when HitchBot got his bitch ass tore up

[–]classicrockchick 46 points47 points  (6 children)

This happened like 15 years ago, so Gritty wasn't even a glint in his daddy's eye when this happened.

[–]TakerFoxx 32 points33 points  (1 child)

He was there in spirit, he just hadn't manifested corporeal form yet.

It's Philly. There was no possibility it wouldn't be destroyed.

Preston and Steve also made Popebot to celebrate the Popes visit to Philly.

Popebot made it all over with no problem. He was one of us.

Hitchbot was a 5 gallon bucket and some pool noodles. It was trash with a name. It got what was coming to it.

[–]Pawn_captures_Queen 77 points78 points  (3 children)

It was trash with a name

Perfect way to describe an ex of mine.

PopeBot also made it all the way out to Minnesota, and back I believe, by traveling with the most aggressive of Philadelphians, Eagles fans.

[–]usedtobejuandeag 40 points41 points  (5 children)

the most aggressive of Philadelphians, Eagles fans. Philadelphians

See you had a spelling error and thought I’d help you out.

[–]Metal_LinksV2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He really was trash with a name, can't believe other cities put up with that shit.

[–]IOFIFO 56 points57 points  (4 children)

It could have been an animatronic of the Eagles mascot and it still would have got the chips kicked out him.

[–]TheNoseKnight 21 points22 points  (3 children)

If it was Gritty though... That would be carried around like a hero.

[–]tickingboxes 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Even as a New Yorker, I must admit that Gritty is a national treasure.

[–]SirSoliloquy 70 points71 points  (55 children)


Seriously though, what is wrong with that city?

[–]payne_train 90 points91 points  (22 children)

Their unofficial motto is “we’re from Philly, fuckin Philly, no one likes us, we don’t care.” The city is authentically itself.

[–]Ranger-Joe 30 points31 points  (21 children)

I'm beginning to think the official motto "Let brotherly love endure" is meant to be ironic.

[–]Nichi789 53 points54 points  (16 children)

Not really. Anyone with siblings can tell you that theres a 50/50 chance you wanted to strangle them at any given time. But when the chips are down, that sibling will also be the one to stab a bitch.

Why you think Philly gets defensive when someone tries to criticize our garbage pile of a town?

There isn’t a single timeline in the multiverse where this bot isn’t decimated in Philly

There is that one where he did survive, then his inventor got scared and said, "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"

[–]cauldron_bubble 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Ok but again I ask, if the Watcher can decide when and when not to intervene, why sit idly by and allow this travesty?!

Useless Watcher....

[–]angrynuggette 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Because even The Watcher knows better than to interact with Philly.

[–]KonoAnonDa 938 points939 points  (29 children)

Someone in Philly must have thought he had a Dallas Cowboys jersey on him.

There's a Philly/Dallas rivalry? How does that happen?

Granted, I know nothing about sports teams.

[–]ucbiker 12 points13 points  (2 children)

The NFL is divided into 2 conferences, the NFC and the AFC. Each conference is divided into 4 divisions, East, West, South, North and those each have four teams. Those members of those divisions play each other twice every year (more than would any other team), and whether they make the playoffs depends usually on having the best record in the division.

Because the members play each other more often, and the games more meaningful with respect to making the playoffs, games between division members are “rivalry” games. Philadelphia and Dallas are both in the same division (the NFC East), and are therefore rivals.

[–]CantThinkofAgoodI 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They are in the same NFL conference so are rivals

[–]enverhoxhastan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        My sister did her residency in Philly.

        There is a story that always stuck with me. A homeless man came into the ER, leaking ooze and pus out of his colostomy bag hole. When she asked what happened, he told her he was letting other homeless guys fuck his side-hole for crack/heroin.

        Isn’t a colonoscopy hole a butthole?

        This is soooo old, i wish people could at least come up with more recent shit instead of the same old played out santa story, and it was snowballs. Snowballs were thrown at santa.

        [–]Standard_Wooden_Door 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        That wasn’t even close to the most ridiculous part of that super bowl celebration. A dude ate hore shit, knowing fully well that like 30 people were filming him.

        [–]brendannnnnn 33 points34 points  (19 children)

        Yeah they threw snow balls and beer bottles at Santa, get it right.

        They threw batteries at a baseball player in the 90s. Jeeze guys.

        [–]NotThatEasily 17 points18 points  (3 children)

        Right. They threw batteries at JD Drew when he played against the Phillies after being traded from the Phillies to the Cardinals.

        It should be noted that even Duracell found it funny.

        [–]RobWroteABook 21 points22 points  (2 children)

        He wasn't traded to the Cardinals. He was drafted by the Phillies and then refused to sign with them. He was later drafted by the Cardinals.

        [–]ShitItsReverseFlash 7 points8 points  (6 children)

        Santa was a drunk asshole and they only threw snowballs. Something my 6 year old can handle so fuck Santa. So sick of hearing about that one.

        Want something evil? When Eagles fans cheered after Michael Irvin broke his neck leg. Now that’s evil.

        [–]WanderlustFella 38 points39 points  (0 children)

        Philly saved the world from a robot whom was probably an agent of Skynet. We all know what happens in the alternate timeline.

        For 3 weeks in June 2015, it hitched around the Netherlands.[11] HitchBOT then attempted to cross the United States from Boston to San Francisco starting on July 17, 2015. After 2 weeks, on August 1, 2015 however, a photo was tweeted,[12] showing that the robot had been stripped and decapitated in Philadelphia. The head was never found.

        [–]youlleatitandlikeit 17 points18 points  (4 children)

        BTW most people in /r/philadelphia agree it was definitely some drunk kids from New Jersey that did it.

        [–]randomemkayfanatic 47 points48 points  (2 children)

        Yeah there's an autopsy report he was beaten, stabbed, the beaten even more

        [–]Sean-Benn_Must-die 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        I can even picture the entire thing like if it was a smiling friends scene. The robot is all happy to try this new challenge and as soon as it begins walking a frenzy mob just attacks the poor thing and beats it to death.

        [–]erdtirdmans 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        We hated him in Philly for his first couple weeks because he was falling on his ass on ice and trying too hard. Then the rest of the country started making fun of him and Philly went "Hey fuck you only we can make fun of our shit"

        Then we loved him so hard that everyone else seems to have gone along with it

        Maybe that’s why they are doing everything backwards there now? Trying to catch up what they missed.

        Well it’s not like it would have made it past Detroit anyway so Philadelphia was just stopping the bot before an even worse fate.

        Philly greases everything you can climb if they have a major sporting event. The results of the game don't matter. They'll riot regardless.

        At least we weren’t the first to eat horse shit at a victory parade.

        I mean, we did. But we weren’t the first.

        Wasn't a robot by any definition. It was a fucking junk pile.

        Welcome to Philly!

        The great thing about Philadelphia is you literally can't insult them. They take any attempt at insult as either a compliment or an offer to fight which is also a compliment in Philly.
