SpongeBob SquarePants is a Viacom-owned cartoon about a sentient sponge named SpongeBob doing random, repetitive, unfunny jokes that stretch longer than Kirk Johnson's anus, which in turn inspired thousands of equally unfunny YouTube Poops and compilation videos. The show is a notable lolcow for the fact that it's quite obvious that SpongeBob is gay. Why else would he need so many holes, cry in EVERY SINGLE FUCKING EPISODE, and on one occasion adopt a child in a same-sex partnership? Since day one, all of the episodes promote homosexuality and everyone who watches it has most likely turned gay in one way or another by now.
SpongeBob SquarePants: The main fag of the show. He acts like an AIDS infected fucktard who cries every time a baby is born in China and has a crush on Squidward in every single goddamn episode.
Squidward Tentacles: A penis nosed squid who bitches about everything. He considers himself a great clarinet player despite clearly sucking ass at it. Today, he has no role other than being tortured by SpongeBob and Patrick in every episode he appears in.
Expect him to commit suicide in the next episode. Turns out, the sick fucks at Nick made an entire episode, Are You Happy Now?, about trying to make fun of Squidward supposedly committing suicide. But, to avoid ratings dropping, they kept him alive, and his torture continues.
Pearl Krabs: The bitchy crybaby teen of the show that nobody likes. Her adopted father is a crab and her mother was hunted down by Chinese fishermen.
Sandy Cheeks: The show's main subject of Rule 34. Despite being Texan, she's actually the smartest character in the show, i.e. a Mary Sue, which is just enough to deserve her getting ran over by a truck or getting raped...or both.
Sheldon Plankton: The troll of the show and a very bad one at it. Despite being an evil genius with the technology to take over the world, he instead wastes it trying to attain a glass bottle from Mr. Krabs and run his own fast food chain. He's also a virgin, since he's married to a computer.
Patchy the Pirate: A perfect representation of the show's fanbase, a delusional manchild who has such a hard-on for SpongeBob that his entire life revolves around him.
The Flying Dutchman: A butt pirate of a ghost that scares everyone who looks like a pussy to begin with.
Back in 1992, Troy Walker scribbled up a comic about a sponge named "Bob Sponge" with a face scribbled on a kitchen sponge to go with it. These comics were distributed in northern California, which by total coincidence, is just where Stephen Hillenburg, SpongeBob's creator, met Joe Murray at a public toilet in an art convention who gave him a shot at cable TV by letting him work on his shitty show Rocko's Modern Life, of which the plot consisted of a Wallaby who lived with his pet, had a fat best friend, and worked a low wage job with a cheap boss. After it became obvious Murray's show sucked donkey balls, Nickelodeon canceled it and booted his ass out of there. Needing another cartoon to replace it, Nick gave Hillenburg a chance to shit out his own unique idea. Putting his incredible creativity and story telling abilities to the limit, Hillenburg took the two failed ideas, smashed them together, and the rest is now an Internet regular. Some light of this came around in 2006, when Troy Walker sued for $1 billion for copyright infringement, but the court said a cartoon sponge isn't a copy-writable idea and to GTFO!
