About the Chronicles of Rico


Most of you are probably capable of figuring out this website’s “shtick,” but oddly enough, many visitors have arrived and managed to completely misinterpret what in the hell is going on.  With that said, I will utilize the contents of this page to explain what this site is, the events that led to it being developed, the website’s “shtick,” etc.

In a nutshell, I am Rico Swaff. I am a rural Iowan, Generation Y-guy equipped with an arsenal of true yet unbelievable stories reflected with warped and quirky, yet subconsciously common thoughts and observations pertaining to the shit-storms I encounter. I tend to encounter these shit-storms at an alarmingly higher than average rate, or maybe it just seems that way because I choose to write about them, but nevertheless, every story I have written and posted, unless specified otherwise, is true. Many of the stories and mullet man pictures tend to rely heavily on crude, vulgar and or cringe-inducing humor.

The mullet man picture stories are fictional, but that should be obvious. Rick “The Mullet Man” Suave is basically my website’s mascot. I incorporated the mullet man with intentions of appealing to a wider audience which consists of; a.) those who like to read funny stories, b.) those who like to look at funny pictures are c.) people who like to both, read funny stories and look at funny pictures.  You can read more about who the mullet man is by clicking on the “Who is this Disgusting Mullet Man” page, but in a nutshell, Rick “The Mullet Man” Suave is a superhero with a unique super-power of being incomprehensibly sub-human. He represents the epitome of idiocy.  I try to tie him in to every story I write, with the most ridiculous subplot imaginable in terms of what is going on in his life and how it relates to the story.

I created this blog in 2008 and it is actually derived from my old Myspace and Xanga blog posts.  The first blog I ever created was a Xanga blog.  I dabbled with that in 2003-2005 or so.  These entries tended to be more personal and serious opposed to being exclusively geared towards being humorous, but every once in a while, I posted humorous stories.  A couple of them are included in this blog. I began posting blog entries on Myspace in 2005 or so and that is when I made the decision to keep my serious, personal thoughts to myself and to exclusively disclose the amusing and/or funny thoughts and stories.  Many of my early entries posted on this site are revised versions of Myspace posts.

My intent isn’t to be a brilliant “writer” as much as it is to be an amusing and/or entertaining “story teller.” So don’t get confused…I realize that what I post is not literary genius. However, if you tend to have a silly or crude/vulgar sense of humor, I hope you enjoy your time reading some of my post.
