Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4

Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4



  1. Dennis says:

    When they were singing ‘Headline News’ I had the thought- a “Weird Al” style polka of “Weird Al” parodies. Have him do it the next time he’s on.

  2. Donna D says:

    At the end when Matt was talking about Master Chef while Chris sang “Cheer Up, Charlie” I was laughing so hard in my cubicle!! I had tears streaming down my face from trying not to make too much noise at work. SO funny!!!

  3. Ashley says:

    The joke about John Lennon’s death kind of took the wind out of the sails.

  4. JetpackBlues says:

    A thought; Katie should be the honorary fourth host, much like Nick is/was at the E! studio.

  5. Josh says:

    Ha ha ha!!! Man, sure is nice to have a troll back. Sort of… Hey Trolly McTrollface, are you a comedican, or are you a comedican’t? (existential high five to whomever gets that movie reference)

  6. Patty Marvel says:

    @JetpackBlues – No offense taken! Fart sounds are funny! What is NOT funny is someone dropping a silent but violent stink bomb in an elevator I’m riding. NOT cool!

    @Doctor Quemmento – Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s a comedian! It’s a lubricant! It’s a lubricant! It’s a comedian….

  7. Well some people just get unusually cranky when mommy makes regular pancakes instead of happy face pancakes. By the way, does anyone know what a comedicant is? I checked the dictionary, but no luck.

  8. JetpackBlues says:

    And no, I’m not actually 15 years old. Just my brain and sense of humor are.

  9. JetpackBlues says:

    I was going to suggest he was a QUEEF or a VART, and was trying to un-acronym both of them, but in the end I realized I’m 15 and just wanted to type those words.

    No offense, Mrs. Marvel.

  10. Patty Marvel says:

    @Josh – The “Ass CUNT” is on the job…

  11. Josh says:

    Ha ha! Patty! Great minds…

  12. Josh says:

    I think maybe we need a new acronym for the above troll… DRUNK. Don’t know what DRUNK might stand for, though the D probably stands for “douche”, but DRUNK is definitely the acronym. Poor dude meant to write a compliment, but then those letters on the keyboard started a-swimmin’, and now he’s been reported to CUNT… Hard liquor and opinions, never a great combination.

  13. Patty Marvel says:

    AWWWWWW!!! Looks like a baby troll is trying BEER for the first time! Ain’t that precious!

  14. matt is unfunny even during hostfuls. don't even get me started on the dumb hawaiian, or that tubby kid who is not at all funnyn says:

    see the name.matt is 1. not funny, 2. boring as hell, 3. a horrible comedicant., much liek jonah. who is a generic hipster, less funny.

  15. Alec says:

    I still think Matt should have gone with Yesterday’s Enterprise. The episode so awesome that it could have replaced Insurrection or Nemesis.
