A strange-looking helmet can be seen on Rick's work bench in many episodes. He can even be seen fiddling with the helmet at the beginning of the episode Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender. The presence of said helmet has led to a dark new fan theory that is based around the urban legend of the suicide helmet, in which a troubled teenager builds a helmet rigged with shotgun shells that he uses to commit suicide. Rick's helmet contains several red tubes protruding from its surface that look unsettlingly like shotgun shells. Rick has had many close calls with death over the show's run, but given his unstable and often highly depressive mindset, it is believable yet very unfortunate that he would willingly build a device for such a purpose. Others have argued that the helmet looks a bit like the the brainwave-analyzing helmet worn by Doc Brown in Back to the Future
(1985) as he tries to reads Marty's mind. Given that the show is based on Doc and Marty from Back to the Future, this theory isn't too far-fetched either (and the helmet seems to contain a set of goggles, which seems a bit unnecessary if its purpose is to kill the wearer). See more
One of the Mr Meeseeks summons a Mr Meeseeks with the Meeseeks box and instructs this Mr Meeseeks to kill one of the other Mr Meeseeks. But the Mr Meeseekses don't exactly die, they have to fulfill their purpose so that they can go away. So the Mr Meeseeks getting killed by the other Mr Meeseeks would be having its purpose interrupted, which would violate the Laws of the Mr Meeseekses. Also, when the new Mr Meeseeks does kill the other Mr Meeseeks, the new Mr Meeseeks doesn't go away, even though it has fulfilled its purpose. Instead, the new Mr Meeseeks gets swept into Jerry's "Take two swings off my Golf Game" fiasco. See more
