Stupid Ricky

25 Mar

So, you guys remember my nemesis, Ricky, right? The guy I work with? You know, the guy who didn’t laugh at my Steely Dan joke about losing my number because apparently “he didn’t know the song” and, subsequently, lost my number?

Well, I don’t know how many more nights I could lie awake wondering if Ricky actually lost my office number, if he truly didn’t know the song or if he was just being a dick.

I wasn’t sure I’d ever learn the truth.

However, during another meeting a few days ago, as I stared at Ricky to see if I could catch a glimpse of the dark soul that surely exists underneath his hair gel and professional business person faΓ§ade, he randomly turned and winked at me. It was then that I realized the truth about Ricky–he didn’t lose my number. He sucks and he just wanted me to feel dumb. Douche.

Well, whatever, Ricky. Your potent hair gel leaves a smell in the elevator long after you’re gone and sometimes there’s a booger almost falling out of your nose and I hate you and you’ll pay for this.



Ricky, burning my number


Also, I’d like to wish a Happy Pastramiversary to Jon, the unique cartoon/photo artist over at who provided his Ricky interpretation. Thanks, dude!

You can also find Pastrami Basket on Facebook and it’s awesome, so you should go to there.

    I’m not at all surprised Ricky has boogers falling out of his nose at business meetings. Definitely a douche. Oh and Team Pastrami unite!

      UNITE! Jon actually captured him quite well for never having seen the guy. I simply described him as a “broseph.”

    The guy seems like a total fuck stick ass hat. Boooo Ricky.


    • La La at 10:23 am #

      He so is.

        Yayyy Lauren, she’s our gal. She’s our precious! We loves her forever.


        • La La at 10:26 am #

          Haha, thanks Bob/Smeagol.

            I’m glad you got that, otherwise I’d be getting creepy!

    I’m in total agreement that Ricky is nefarious, but don’t hate on his booger nose. Some of us seriously cannot feel when we have cliffhangers. I’m a sufferer myself.


    • La La at 10:38 am #

      Haha, cliffhangers! I understand, I was just mad because his are likely evil. I’m a sufferer too sometimes–everyone is. We’re all in this together.

    I remember back in high school when I used to use hair gel. πŸ™‚

    Winking really should be outlawed. It’s never appropriate and honestly, when does it not seem super creepy? Especially when it’s someone who can’t wink well.


    • La La at 11:05 am #

      Woah, good point. I can’t think of a single wink that hasn’t made either myself or a friend feel like we needed a shower.


      • Kathleen at 9:48 pm #

        When you said he winked at you, in my mind’s vision, my disgust for him added ‘finger guns’ and that click-click noise with the one cheek Ugh!

    Oh, this isn’t going to end well.
    I’m not saying it won’t end hilariously.
    Just not well.


    • La La at 11:39 am #

      Haha, well as long as we can laugh about it later…


  7. Twindaddy at 11:21 am #

    Douchecanoes. Douchecanoes everywhere!

    Next time he winks at you, hand him a tissue.


    • La La at 12:05 pm #

      Hahaha, I’ll carry a pack around just waiting for it.

    He’s probably found your blog and now thinks he’s famous – boogers and all. Love Jon’s Ricky interpretation.

    The way I see it, you have a new work toy now. ; ) Kinda like a hackey sack, but human.


    • La La at 4:33 pm #

      Hahaha, I was never good with those.


      • jayne at 4:41 pm #

        All the more reason to practice with Tricky Ricky…you know, when you’re bored.


  11. Eva at 11:22 pm #

    He probably wears ‘Axe for Men’. Bleh…


    • La La at 11:29 pm #

      Probably. It’s so overpowering!! Like 8 too many sprays style.


      • Eva at 10:21 am #

        Aw, gag with me with a spatula.


  12. Sarah at 11:34 pm #

    I simultaneously hate and love cartoon Ricky. Nice work, Pastrami! As for Human Ricky, I can practically smell the hair gel fumes.


  13. Amy Reese at 1:46 am #

    What a douche, La La! You must stop him. Light his hair on fire. Sorry, I just want to protect you. That’s a great cartoon.

    Hey, Ricky, you’re so fine. You’re so fine, you blow my mind…EXCEPT THE OPPOSITE!

    I TOLD you!! And now you’re calling him boogerhead…. How sweet, I think I smell more than hair gel. Next thing you know he’s gonna come over and pull your ponytail on the playground. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    We’ve got to come up with a game plan, a reverse “Ricky don’t lose my number” gag. Hmmm….. I’m quite partial to going to the supermarket and getting a gazillion of those little subscribers outta magazines and sending them all in with someone’s address and funny names. But I don’t think that follows the theme very well here.
    I think I’ve got it! You’ll have to find abunch of Steely Dan websites and fanclubs, then subscribe or “join” with his e-mail address. He’ll be getting Steely Dan spam for ages, just keep it up. Though kinda wondering how many websites and fanclubs there could possibly be for Steel Dan out there. This might need some retooling a bit. We’ll have to work out the kinks, but the ball is in your court now. So you need to strike while the iron is hot.

      Oh my god. You’re a genius. A true genius.


      • theclocktowersunset at 6:00 pm #

        My talents are often overlooked, under-appreciated and wasted, but in this arena I excel. I am at your service, tweet me and we can devise a plan to rival any caper even The Joker could pull on ‘ol Batman and GothamCity himself. Too bad we missed April fools. 😦 😦
        None the less, to the think tank(insert super villain alias)!
