Social Anxiety from the South

Spongebob and Marx

I love Spongebob.  Who with a toddler doesn’t?  I know many adults who find it to be annoying and the animation to be less than stellar.  But, the content.

Today, it’s raining and the G-man and I are kicking it lazy style, when everyone’s favorite yellow sponge comes on and low and behold it’s Bikini Bottom’s own Bolshevik Revolution.

In “Squid on Strike,” Squidward decides that Krabs underpays and overworks.  He then convinces Spongebob to strike with him.  They picket the Krusty Krab (ew) and instead of rousing up the support from the community they expect, the succeed in drumming up tons of business for the miser Krab.

Beautiful social commentary on the apathy of the American public.  Amidst the screams of the pair about the fate of the lowly, united workers, the public lines up for their prepackaged fast food; unable to be denied their daily comforts.

For your viewing pleasure (or horrific withdraw) I give you “Squid on Strike.”

  2. Now I understand why I hate this show. When it came on, my kids were no longer toddlers, so I was far enough removed from that stage of crippling mommy brain to fall victim to this insidiously evil spongey curse on mankind.

    I’m so glad you helped clear this up for me. (Thanks for the nod about the animation, too. I love having friends who GET me.)

    • LOL. And yet you encourage it with your handicrafted spongey trinkets.

      • It’s my version of prostituting myself.
