[[http://www.youtube.com/user/ricesnot Ricesnot]] is a [[YoutubePoop Youtube Pooper]] who is best known for his videos about [[DemBones skeletons]]. He has stated that he wants to create 100 bone videos. He mostly makes [=YTPMVs=] and episodes of a series about the wacky adventures of [[ADogNamedDog a skeleton named Bones]] and his friend [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Therapist]]. His most used source is a commercial for an 80's board game called Rattle Me Bones, which has attained MemeticMutation status, in part thanks to his efforts.

* CoincidentalBroadcast: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHaNAzT5TZk "therapist's adventure"]] there just so happens to be a show on to help Therapist [[spoiler: dispose of Bones' bones.]]

-->'''Bones:''' "But you'll be gone for ''months''. No one should have to wait ''months'' for new mysteries"
* SkeletalMusician: Skelex, an obvious expy of {{Skrillex}}. There's also the trumpeter pirates from the Rattle Me Bones commercial.
* StandardSnippet: When the music used isn't from a video game or a show, it's all stock tunes. Some are used more effectively than others, but all of it sets the tone well.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: Since there are only thirty seconds of footage to work with, any music in the videos are one of these. He also remixed a lot of music from ''VideoGame/MightySwitchForce'' this way.
* StylisticSuck: Every image used in the videos is from some form of stock image poorly edited to have no background (or sometimes not at all), with their watermarks clearly visible even when they could have been easily edited out. The animation done with them is all simple tweens and is very intentionally shoddy as a result.

-->'''Officer Frank:''' "oh OK"
