If you find yourself living by the gospel of animated mad scientist Rick Sanchez, then paying a visit to the "Rickmobile" might be akin to some sort of twisted, belching mecca.

While many fans of Adult Swim's Emmy Award-winning series Rick And Morty have proven themselves to be toxic after launching abusive campaigns aimed at the show's writing staff after the series hired a handful of female writers in 2017 (behavior co-creator Dan Harmon has since publicly condemned) the bottom line is simple: being a Rick And Morty fan is complicated. Oh, and Rick And Morty is really fucking funny and no amount of assholes can take that away from us.

For those who dare to bare their fandom loud and proud, fans can stock up on Rick And Morty gear straight from the belly of the beast, er, Rick. As part of the "Don't Even Trip Road Trip 2018", the "world's largest Rick" will make stops across the U.S. including breweries in Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Ann Arbor this week.

The Rickmobile will serve as a roving store full of Rick And Morty exlusive merchandise and collectibles. Supplies, of course, are limited and the store accepts credit and debit cards only. But snapping a selfie with the glossy and grotesque hell-on-wheels? Those are free.

Catch the Rickmobile at Gray Skies Distillery in Grand Rapids from 5 p.m.- 8 p.m. on Sept. 12, Lansing Brewing Company from 5 p.m.- 8 p.m. on Sept. 14, and Ann Arbor's Wolverine State Brewing Company from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on Sept. 15.
