The Strange Thing That Happens When You Google 'Wubba Lubba Dub Dub' From Rick And Morty

"Rick and Morty" may be known for pickle-based escapades and high-concept sci-fi adventures, but every so often, the show manages to delve into genuine sentimental territory. This can most easily be seen in Season 1's "Interdimensional Cable," when Morty reveals to his sister Summer that he's not actually her brother from that universe. Instead, he came from a different reality, so he's able to give her some much-needed context to their existence: "Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody's gonna die."

"Rick and Morty" simply has the uncanny ability to hit people right in the feels and provide essential context to the nature of existence. Something similar happened a little later in that very first season when Bird Person describes to Morty what Rick's catchphrase, "Wubba lubba dub dub," actually means. It translates to, "I am in great pain, please help me." Hearing Rick shout it all the time reveals just how truly miserable he is in life despite all of the fantastical adventures he goes on with Morty. And the line has resulted in a fun Easter egg fans of the show can enjoy in real life.

Google knows what 'wubba lubba dub dub' means

As pointed out by one eagle-eyed Redditor, something intriguing happens if you decide to Google "Wubba lubba dub dub." The very first thing you'll see on the front page is Google helpfully suggesting, "Did you mean: I am in great pain please help me." It appears someone working at Google wanted to put in a fun "Rick and Morty" Easter egg into the search engine, so if you ever forget what Rick's catchphrase means, you know you can Google it to find the answer in less than a second. 

That's not the only way to have fun on the Google homepage. You can do plenty of other neat things with the search engine, provided you know what to type in. For example, if you type "blink html" into the search bar, you'll find that all of the bold text that comes up on the screen will begin to blink. And if you really want to embrace chaos, then try searching for "askew." It will give you a prime example of the word's definition by slightly tilting the screen so that everything you see is ... well, askew. 

Redditors on the "wubba lubba dub dub" thread had other quick pointers on fun things found within Google, such as u/BeautifulEssay8, who wrote, "Also, you can look up the address for Dr Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum and Dr Xaviers School for Gifted Children on Gmaps...or at least you could...I haven't tested it lately." Who knows what other things are hidden within Google's results pages?
