The Skeleton War and the Rustling of Ricardo (other topics covered include SpongeBob Squarepants, Shane Dawson, Nash Grier & Hayes Grier)

"“I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms...

No matter how bad things get in life, we know they could always get worse...

At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep.” (via SpongeBob Squarepants)

For instance, you could be drafted to fight in The Skeleton War.

Which is a perfect segue into Jake Brickhead's latest edition of "This Week in Memes", which you can watch below...

New addition to my youtube channel Ricardo the Ranting Rhinoceros wasn't drafted, but nonetheless, his jimmies suffered from some serious rustling this week.

Just watch this clip from Shane Dawson's vlog "A Message to Haters" and you'll see what got Ricardo's rhino trunks in a loop...

Owldolph Hitler

Well, is a little rant on the subject via Ricardo...

And on yet another episode of  RANT-O-VISION, Ricardo could not hide his disdain regarding the notorious Nash Grier and his brother Hayes (see NASH GRIER vs. HAYES GRIER)

Watch the drama unfold in the video below...

And now we shall end this week's journey through the intertubes.

Once again thank you, and please remember to support your local zoo...

Stay classy, Chicago!


  1. Hitler's tweets would have been fascinating. If he actually followed through on some of those ideas, just imagine the random crap that popped in his head that he could have tweeted out . . .

    1. Yeah, I can imagine the kind of things Kim Jong Un must be tweeting (if I could read Korean).

  2. I've recently gotten angry at someone for belittling someone's argument by laughing and saying they were stupid without even addressing the comment itself. So in the interest of not being a hypocrite, I'm going to address Shane Dawson's Tweeting comment rationally:

    That could be taken in one of two ways. If he's saying "You not liking me is as bad as me wanting Jews to die", then that's very, very wrong. Most people would agree that on the scale of bad things, Jews dying comes before someone not liking Shane Dawson.
    On the other hand, if he's saying "Favouriting a tweet that's hating on me means you agree, just like favouriting a tweet from Hitler means I agree with him", then I hate to say it, but I agree. It just sounds stupider than it really is because of the enormous difference in scale.

    That was probably a buzzkill, sorry :P

    1. Well, yes, but why do you need to bring up Hitler to make the point that favoriting means you agree with the tweet? Anyway, to be fair to the guy, I think that was really Shane's version of standup comedy. Though if you watch his whole video, Shane also claims that his videos "save peoples lives"... so, I suppose, if I don't like his videos I again ride with Hitler. But here is the kicker, what if Hitler came to our present age with a time machine and started favoriting all of Shane Dawson's tweets just to be ironic? Then what?

    2. Well obviously that would create a symbolic "snake eating its own tail" in the space-time continuum and the exact points in which Hitler left his own time and arrive in ours would continue to mix and merge with each other until all time becomes one and we collapse into a singularity.

      Either that or we'll just stop following Hitler on Twitter.

    3. Sounds like it would probably be easier to just stop following Hitler on twitter.

  3. I think I could probably handle being part of the skeleton war. I'd need a flamethrower but I'd be good. Flaming also works in internet arguments like Grier vs Grier. Oh I'm witty.

    1. Hey, just be careful with that flamethrower.

  4. The skeleton war idea is not original. Look at this clip from the movie Jason and the Argonauts. You should post this clip all over the place so people know the Jack Nicholson guy is a copycat. Why is the "I farted" dog giving us a dirty look? He should have an apologetic look on his face if he farted. This meme sends a bad message to children and should be suppressed.

    1. Gorilla, ironically I made a gif from that movie on my post about the Skeleton War at my tumblr blog. (I thought the Spy Kids gif came out better which is why I posted that one here at But I am impressed that you already knew about that movie. You must be a Skeleton War historian. I think the dog is looking at us like that because he knows HE farted, but he is looking at us like we did it, to try to mitigate his embarrassment.
