By | August 3rd, 2017|Pop Culture, Rick and Morty, Television, Tom's Posts|

One of the things I like about Rick and Morty is that it usually provokes interesting thoughts. Some of these thoughts are weird (for instance, the time I estimated how many testicles would fit in a dump truck), and sometimes they are just interesting (to me, at least). This is the first post of a [...]

That episode was crazy.
