    christopher snedeker what if another rick made this sauce came back from the past and placed it into a timeline and only that rick knows the recipe

  • christopher snedeker 5 months ago

    Friendship we know it was a lie, Rick dosn't care about the sauce, because if he's the smartest man in the universe there's no way he couldn't figure out the recipe, or even more easily just go to a dimension where it's still available

    Can you talk about how watching Richard and Mortimer increases the circumference of your brain?

  • fireaza 3 months ago

    Alas, old bean, it does no such thing, as it is a mere animated picture and is not an adequate substitution for traditional education.

  • DoctorWeeTodd 4 months ago

    The increased circumference is caused by cancer.

  • So cool that we have cartoons that are inspiring young audience to get excited about science. My school definitely didn't do that for me, but this cartoon really works on me! 🙂
