Rick and Morty has inspired quite a fan base for its madcap, gross-out, hilarious episodes which detail the adventures that its grandfather and grandson titular characters go out on.

A couple of years back, Twitter asked the daring question of but where does the name 'Rick and Morty' come from and what does it mean?

So here it is, what may be one of the greatest Twitter threads ever.
