‘Genius’ ‘Rick and Morty’ Fans Are Getting Dragged With This Meme
Rick and Morty has a ton of great jokes, don’t think? Oh, you don’t? MAYBE YOU JUST AREN’T SMART ENOUGH TO GET THEM. That’s what the worst diehard Rick and Morty fans tend to say online, and the internet has taken notice. A new meme has slowly emerged, taking aim at the obnoxious Rick and Morty fans who think that liking a TV show means they’re geniuses. There’s lots of sarcasm here. Smart people will get it.

"I watch Rick and Morty." The class is shocked at my overwhelming intelligence. "…how? I can't even understand its sheer nuance and subtlety." "Well… WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUB!" One student laughs, and I turn to see who the fellow genius is. It's none other than Albert Einstein.

19. This Copypasta
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewers head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenevs Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
