    About

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty is a copypasta that fans of the animated television series Rick and Morty use to respond to criticisms of the show. The text, which may have been originally posted sincerely, refers to the high-falutin and self-congratulatory way people talk the show.

    Origin

    While it appears that the text may have come from a previous Facebook comment, the earliest available posting comes from a Reddit[1] comment on July 29th, 2017. That day, Redditor Niekish posted in the subreddit /r/CringeAnarchy:

    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 viewer’s 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 Turgenev’s 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 😎

    Spread

    The following day, Redditor[2] trinityjadex posted the entired text in the /r/copypasta subreddit. Within a month, it received more than 870 points (97% upvoted) and 100 comments.

    Within the thread, another Redditor credits an Instagram[3] comment on a @h3h3productions as the source. The post (shown below), which received more than 150,000 likes in six week, however, was posted after the /r/CringeAnarchy comment.



    Also, on July 30th, the Facebook account dankmemesformillennialteens posted an anti-Rick and Morty meme of the Powerpuff Girls intro with the words “shit storyline,” “no originality,” shit animation," and shit character development." The post (shown below, left) received more than 3,600 reactions, 1,200 comments and 723 shares. Facebook user Ben Smylie responded to the post with copypasta, received more than 160 reactions.

    The following day, Facebook[4] account Difficulty II posted the copypasta (shown below, right), receiving more than 780 reactions, 122 shares and 175 comments.



    On September 8th, the Instagram meme account @dabmoms posted a picture of an elderly man clutching his chest with the caption “Lady: He’s having a heart attack. Is anyone here a doctor? Rick and Morty fan: it actually takes a certain level of intelligence to appreciate the subtle genius of Dan Harmon’s humor.” The post (shown below) received more than 12,000 likes in 16 hours.

On September 7th, 2017, representatives from the site handed out 70,000 towels with an illustration of NFL-commisioner Roger Goodell in clown make up to fans at the New England Patriots opening game.

    Background

    On May 12th, 2015, Barstool Sport-owner Dave Portnoy and three other Barstool Sports employees were arrested during a sit-in at NFL Headquarters in New York City.[1] Hoping to speak to Godell, the group was protesting the NFL’s punishment of Tom Brady during the deflategate scandal.

    Two years, on August 1st, 2017, Portnoy tweeted that he had ordered 30,000 towels with a picture of Goodell in clown make-up on them. He said, “I’ll take 30k of these towels please. I’ll see you in Foxboro @nflcommish (Yes I’m serious)” The post (shown below) received more than 2,100 retweets and 8,600 likes in one month.

    The next day, he posted about his plan on Barstool Sports,[3] explaining that he planned on handing the towels out to fans at the Patriots season opener, which Goodell would be attending. He wrote:

    So we know Roger Goodell is going to be at Foxboro for the NFL Season opener. We also know our Clown shirt drives him bananas. Just sends him into a blind rage. Hmm, what oh what should I do? Hey I got an idea! I think I’ll order 30 thousand of these towels to give out to all my closest friends and family on Thursday September 7th.



    Development

    Following the game, Portnoy tweeted[4] a video of himself, apparently, crying about the Patriots suffering a loss, as he said, “on towel day.” The post (shown below) received more than 1,200 retweets and 5,000 likes in less than 24 hours.

  • 09/09/17--17:15: Sealand
  • Overview

    The Principality of Sealand, commonly known simply as Sealand, is a small micronation off the coast of Suffolk on a World War II Fort named HM Fort Roughs. Due to its small area of 0.004 km² and population of around 20, the micronation has been mocked frequently on the internet.[1][2]

    History and Establishment

    During World War II, Great Britan constructed numerous forts as a way to defend against German ships. After the war, the forts were abandoned by British troops, allowing them to be used by Radio Pirates. One of the forts, HM Fort Roughs, was claimed by Paddy Roy Bates and Ronan O’Rahily. After O’Rahily was kicked out of the Fort, Roy Bates’ family permanently moved to the tower and, after an argument with British Royal Marines, declared HM Fort Roughs as a separate country named the Principality of Sealand.[3] After this declaration, Sealand survived an invasion with German and Dutch mercenaries, taking the invaders hostage and demanding £24,132 so they could be released.

    Online Relevance

    WIP

    Sealand has been joked about on the internet for a while, due to its small size and small population.
