Honestly, yes. And I adored Community (I own every season) but Rick and Morty has surpassed Community imho.

But goddammit, The R&M fanbase is becoming toxic and I want to slowly creep away from it. But still enjoy the show but the fans...oooh boy.

I'm sure there's crossover but R&M fandom has a different feel to it than the Community one did.

GBGaf! I just thought of a story from the other night that I meant to tell you.

I went to see Steel Panther/Stone Sour at a concert venue around here, and I saw a guy with a 500th Bombcast shirt on. Imagine looking across a concert place and seeing a balloon lucha deer!

I walked over to the guy, tapped him on the shoulder (nicely), and said "Dude, sick shirt!" because I was excited.

He gave me the blankest dead stare ever and said "Uh. Okay.".

GBers in the wild are jerks, hahaha.

I guess, but you shouldn't go FLAUNTING it like that if you don't want some mentioning it to you. /s

But you're probably right. I love when people come up to me about the shirts/hoodies I'm wearing, but I'm also outgoing and like BSing with random people, haha.

Last year we (friends/I) went to a haunted house and I had a Bullet Club hoodie on. The one worker kid stopped trying to scare everyone for a minute to run over and "Too Sweet" me. It was super awesome (to me)!

What a crappy reaction. I'd be happy to finally see a GB fan in the wild. The only GB fan I know IRL is my best friend. I've yet to see one in the wild (in Belgium).

I don't REALLY judge him for not being thrilled about me going up to him, but it's a freaking GB t-shirt. Super niche. I would absolutely love anyone coming up to me when I have a Whiskey Media shirt on and talking to me about GB.

Hell, when I was in Kentucky a few months ago, I wore my normal Luchadeer shirt to the bar we went to for the night, and the hostess was like "Is that a deer? With a mexican mask on?". I was stoked as shit and talked to her about it for a few minutes. She had no idea what it was from, but it was at least a convo starter, haha.

That would have made my day. "Ugh, you probably like UPF" and just completely blows me off.

I've only seen a few scattered episodes of Rick and Morty so I don't necessarily have much of an opinion on any of this, but man, that show's fanbase is... odd. Anything popular online is clearly going to have pockets of shitty fans, but the toxic portions of R&M's fanbase don't even seem like the type who would even like the show. Pickle Rick is one of the handful of episodes I've seen, and it is really fucking hard to understand how these knuckledraggers rioting at a McDonalds could be into the kind of show that spends the final five minutes of an episode on heavy character stuff the way that ep does.

(I guess I also just tend to have too much faith in people; I was also bewildered by the huge amount of Breaking Bad fans who continued to root for Walter as if he were a hero.)

In Germany I complimented a guy wearing a Deus Ex shirt. He didn't speak English.

In retrospect I wish I ran up and yelled "TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT, FLATLANDER WOMAN" to fully sell the idea of being a crazy person.

I'm bald/bearded/tortoise-shell glasses-ed like Vinny, and I've had a bunch of people ask if I had a t-shit of my own face with that Russian Vinny GBEast shirt, haha.
