Rickyisms is the term devised by the fans of Trailer Park Boys for Ricky's malapropisms. They are often used due to poor education, extensive drug and alcohol use, and situations where he may not be thinking clearly. Bubbles will sometimes point out to Ricky if he has used a word, or a saying that is either incorrect, or does not exist. This can also apply to words that Ricky may simply mispronounce, again through poor education, drug use, or a simple misunderstanding in the pronunciation of a word.  In linguistics, Rickyism's are identified as malapropisms and eggcorns.

== Ricky's Best EpisodesAtoadaso


The use of "fuck off" with "make like a tree and..." is likely intentional, as Ricky is known to use "fuck off" in order to get people to go away and/or leave him alone.

"Zesty Mordant" is a linguistic error that's not exactly a mistake, relating to the fact that Sunnyvale is in Canada, where products are sold with both English and French labels. What happened is this particular bag of Doritos was sold with the English word "zesty" (meaning "spicy" or "full of life") and the French word "mordant" (which translates to "biting") in large text with the rest of the label in small text. So the English way of saying the name of these chips is "Zesty Cheese" and the French reads "Fromage Mordant", or "Biting Cheese".  I would bet Ricky would not have been the first to make this error!
