13 of the Best Dark Humor Jokes From ‘Rick and Morty’
While it’s riddled with crude sex/poop/vomit jokes and weirdness, such as turning one of the main protagonists into a pickle for a whole episode, one of television’s most biting and darkest shows is Rick and Morty. Somehow, the series with someone named Mr. Poopybutthole can easily make a person cry and laugh at a character’s pain.
Don’t believe us? Here are some of the darkest jokes that the show has offered over the years…

In “Look Who’s Purging Now,” Morty finally gives in and purges a planet of feline humanoids with a mech suit. It gets out of hand and bloody real quick.
