Rick was appointed – without his consent or even his knowledge – as the Official The Inspiration for Not To Be Trusted With Knives (NTBTWK) on 14 August 2011 in honour of his 30th birthday on August 6.
Rick earned this title by being officially inspiring. If ever you are in need of inspiration, you need only think about The Inspiration and you will be officially inspired.
While the title of the “Official The Inspiration” sounds grammatically all #$%ed up, it is, in fact, the appropriate title. Rick was dubbed “The Inspiration” some time ago by Dr. Dan, but now that he is officially the official The Inspiration (and yes, it must be capitalized) of NTBTWK, that’s the official and proper title.
