In his dream sequence all the other characters find extremely dumb humor ([[FartsOnFire lighting a fart]], throwing food in someone's face) hilarious. That being the case, I suspect the whole joke actually made no sense and would in reality result in the crowd just uttering a FlatWhat. (alternatively, it could make sense but be a really lame joke only a 5 year old would laugh at in reality.)

Nicholas Andre held Bobby for ransom because he either owed a large sum of money to a drug dealer or a shark loaner and needed the money to meet their demands. Despite the fact he seemely wanted the money for himself he actually owed the respective person money pretty much like in Oliver and Company where Fagin owed money to Sykes and decided to ransom Oliver but had a change of heart when the owner was just a little girl named Jenny. It makes sense Nicholas owed money because at some points in the film his voice sounds frightened or nervous and when he was on the phone twice to Mental he again sounded like he was panicking especially at the burger bar. We also see him bum a smoke and drink something again signs of him panicking and takes them to calm down. His voice cracks when he sees that the money is all gone and in a state of paranoia holds Lloyd, Harry and Mary hostage at gun point. We finally see him on the phone booking a one way ticket to Europe implying he realises he has to escape as far away as possible from the person he owed money to otherwise he would get killed for not meeting their demands. So we can assume Nicholas at some point before the film either did drugs or borrowed a huge wad of money and could not afford to pay it back plus interest so he kidnapped Bobby to get the money and when that failed it he had no choice but to escape and save his own skin.

He was just a stalker that succeeded in playing "soulmate" to Harry. Eventually he found a new stalking victim in Mary. After getting tired of both Harry, Mary and playing stupid, he wanted new adventures. So he moved to another town and got a job as a [[Film/TheCableGuy cable guy]]. Hey, all he used was various aliases to hide his true identity.

** It could also be that he was never robbed and just made that up so he'd have another excuse to convince Harry to go to Aspen.

And the strange thing was... he wasn't even insane, he was faking insanity for the sake of a joke to pull on Harry!

[[WMG: Lloyd and Harry helped write the script for Dumb And Dumberer]]
Unfortunately, Lloyd can't read and Harry wasn't really paying attention so they ended up getting a lot of things wrong.
