STOP EVERYTHING: Fan Proves SpongeBob Isn't Actually A Sea Sponge
SpongeBob SquarePants is everyone's favourite sea sponge. Right? WRONG.
He's everyone's favourite Roman God. According to one Redditor anyway.
Nickelodeon fan 'arbidymeindustries' reckons he never had his God status removed after it was given to him by King Neptune in Season 1! Whuuut?
In "Neptune's Spatula," Roman god King Neptune turns SpongeBob into a God so he can take him to Atlantis. We never actually see Neptune take it away again (even though SpongeBob's hot new gym bod ~does~ disappear). Can we prove it? Uh, hell yeah:
EXHIBIT A: The supernatural community look up to him
In the episode, Neptune (who once mocked SpongeBob as insignificant), cowers in his presence. AND he isn't scared of The Flying Dutchman, the scariest mofo in Bikini Bottom.
EXHIBIT B: He can CREATE LIFE
Remember SpongeBob's 'bubble buddy'? He totally made him. A sentient creature. Out of NOTHING. Another time, he makes a self-portrait come to *life* using only a pen (and the pen wasn't magic, because when other creatures used it, nothing happened).
EXHIBIT C: SpongeBob has complete command over others
EVERYONE LISTENS TO SPONGEBOB FOR NO APPARENT REASON.
In "Hall Monitor" he directs traffic and people follow him so closely they actually crash their cars. In "Christmas Who?" he gets *everyone* in Bikini Bottom hyped about Christmas ~a religious holiday celebrating God~ when NO ONE had heard of it before. In "Band Geeks" he gets a group of people who can't play instruments to practice so much they become professional overnight... and tons more.
The Redditor concluded: "I think that maybe while SpongeBob still has his godly powers that were imbued to him by Neptune, he may not be fully aware of it, explaining a lot of the shenanigans he still gets into".
AND WE'D BE INCLINED TO AGREE. Mind. Blown.
