That SpongeBob SquarePants Penis Joke You've Seen For Years Is Totally Fake

That Spongebob Squarepants Penis Joke Youve Seen

Every few months, a 'new' listicle emerges on some website showcasing a plethora of dirty jokes in cartoons that went over your head as a kid. Mostly, these are the same 20-plus images recycled over and over, but one of them is an imposter that keeps sneaking its way onto lists.

SpongeBob SquarePants is no stranger to adult humor, but there's a certain penis joke that's actually not real; it's been photoshopped.


This joke, ostensibly heard in the Season 3's 'As Seen on TV,' looks like it'd fit right in on SpongeBob , but the bottom quote isn't the actual line from the episode. Mr. Krabs really says, 'Quit fooling and come on out. I need ya to be in the commercial.'

Mind = blown, right? Well, it shouldn't be, since Reddit user rjalh394 set the record straight two years ago after someone uploaded the pic: 'I must have missed this joke as a kid.' Nope, you didn't miss a thing, poopandpop42.

But since then, the 'joke' has popped up on list after list , including a recent one on BuzzFeed . In the post's comments section, Facebook user Marissa Harrington-Verb set the record straight — yet again — and explained how 'memory can play tricks on you,' since we've seen that image circulating around for years.

Still don't believe me? Rewatch the episode for yourself.
