[[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.

-->'''Galrog:''' "just jam something up there it works I swear"
* AnimationBump: In the silliest way possible. With the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yyiiot4RGEk first episode of Season 2]], "These are the Mysteries" has an intro now. With actual original artwork at points!
* AssShove: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG7_89fyaVQ&list=UUXLTJY0lobR124elASvxojg episode 6, "A Season Ends"]], Galrog's henchman comes not to bust him out of jail, but to [[spoiler:deliver an anal probe he smuggled in his ass]].

* ChristmasEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF89rBNyaTc "A Very Ricesnot Christmas"]] retells the story of the birth of {{Jesus}} with copies of Therapist as the ThreeWiseMen and a 3D render of a baby playing a guitar as Jesus.
-->'''Wise Men:''' "incredible. not even a day old and already shredding like a pro"
* 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.]]
-->'''Therapist:''' "tv will know how"
* DemBones: Well, obviously.
* TheFaceless: Ricesnot himself only communicates through text, not audio, and while he appears from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2OJNRgLH6w "BONES DAY OUT"]] onwards in person, it's always in cosplay as Bones.
* FanDisservice: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NW6AXNLFPOI episode 7, "Season Special One"]], Bones decides to end the season with a photoshoot of hot ladies, and then reveals that the hot ladies are [[spoiler: he and Therapist]].

-->'''Bones:''' "It would be an honor to help you. but I'm afraid the mystery wagon operates under a 'no girls allowed' policy. please submit your request via e-mail"
* HoneyTrap: [[spoiler:It turns out Nancy is one of these.]][[note]]In reality, the trap is a puddle of honey that sticks Therapist to the floor.[[/note]]
-->'''Detective:''' "see, you're stuck"
* MediumAwareness: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQOi5ahPFJc 2x05, "Truly Stackless:"]]
--> '''Therapist:''' What? no, he wants this vid flagged for copyright so nobody can see him like this.
* MediumBlending: Some videos, like "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F0_54OvJmE Ricesnot's Indispensable Halloween Instruction,]]" feature Ricesnot himself as Bones in live-action segments.
* NobodyPoops: Strangely averted by Bones himself in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh6s8tvD2tA Bones Takes a Dump.]]" The results are destructive:
-->'''Bones:''' "I '''shat out every one''' of my '''bones'''"
* NoirEpisode: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uufhN0V3Zsw episode 4, "The Dame (or The Broad)".]]
-->'''Therapist:''' "It started the way all tragedies do. with a dame. or a broad. both convey the same meaning"

-->'''Angry Cop:''' "this is a grave misuse of police resources"
* OverlyLongGag: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmjzhpthPfM "Several bones"]] is a loop of a skeleton dancing to a loop from "Devil's Den" by Music/{{Skrillex}} for 8 minutes.
* RunningGag: In the Ricestreams, two things are a frequent source of jokes: Ricesnot's obsession with [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Viennetta]], and a sound clip in his library called "[[ToiletHumor shart.mp3]]".
* ScheduleSlip: While there wasn't really one to begin with, the gap of time between episodes 6 and 7 of These are the Mysteries spanned from September 17th, to June 18th the ''following year''. It's even referenced in episode 7, "Season Special One".
-->'''Bones:''' "But you'll be gone for ''months''. No one should have to wait ''months'' for new mysteries"
* ShoutOut: [[VideoGame/PuyoPuyo Oshare Bones]] appears in several videos, such as "rattle oshare bones," and "bones III".
** [[{{VideoGame/Undertale}} Sans and Papyrus]] cameo in "ricesnot's indespensable halloween instruction" and "Ricesnot's Convention Hijinks 2". Ricesnot also made a remix of "Bonetrousle," Papyrus' [[spoiler: battle]] theme.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMS0vNrkRgQ "bones iii"]] is one long homage to ''{{Franchise/Lupin III}}''.
** [[{{Main/Electroswing}} Parov Stelar's]] "Catgroove" shows up in "bones iii", and he's also made a remix of "リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュ" by [[{{Main/Vaporwave}} MACINTOSH PLUS]].
* 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.
** His cover of ''[[{{VideoGame/Undertale}} Bonetrousle]]'' uses ''his own videos'' as a source.
* 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.
** After the original "bones iii" video was taken down for its use of the ''{{Franchise/Lupin III}}'' theme, the remastered version features a live-action version of Ricesnot playing the theme badly on a trumpet.
* SuicideAsComedy: In "therapist's adventure" Bones [[spoiler: shoots himself in the face with a shotgun.]]
-->'''Bones:''' "we could play ''''eat the gun''''"
-->'''Therapist:''' "but"
-->'''Bones:''' "i'll go first"
-->'''Therapist:''' "wait" [[spoiler: Bang.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: The Ricestreams revealed that Ricesnot has a thing for Viennetta, an ice cream dessert. He also has an obsession with hot dogs.
* {{Troll}}: Ricesnot periodically uploads videos of himself (such as "ricescribble" and "bones invades peaceful art realm") going into roleplay boards on iscribble and filling them with drawings of hot dogs and bones.
* WeirdnessCensor: In episode 7, "Season Special One", Officer Frank scans a piece of luggage with Bones hidden inside it.
-->'''Bones:''' "suitcases have skeletons"
-->'''Officer Frank:''' "oh OK"
* WeaponOfChoice: Therapist believes ShotgunsAreJustBetter, as well as frequently employing GoodOldFisticuffs.
-->'''Therapist:''' "bones, I don't have mad marksmanship skills that's why I use a shotgun"
* WouldHurtAChild: Therapist isn't above threatening children with a shotgun and/or his fists if they come to his doorstep on Halloween while dressed as fake skeletons.
-->'''Therapist:''' "A shotgun is an effective way to deter children"
