Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I don't get SpongeBob

Norah recently discovered SpongeBob SquarePants, and she digs it a lot. Not to the point of obsession, but she still likes it. So I've been watching with her, mainly because I've been sitting in the same room. I know that a while back, SpongeBob was a bit hit with adults as well as kids (my brother-in-law, as far as I know, still likes it), but I just don't get it. SpongeBob is, in a word, annoying. In two words: REALLY ANNOYING. I mean, it's mildly amusing, but I can't imagine anyone over the age of 10 enjoying it for more than five minutes. After about five minutes I just get sick of it. It's not really that hilarious. I'd like to say that its popularity among older people is due to the fact that they watch while they're, you know, enjoying some natural consciousness-altering substances, but my brother-in-law certainly doesn't do that, so that can't be all of it. Can it?

Can someone explain it to me? I just don't get it. Frankly, Disney's Phineas and Ferb is much, MUCH better thant SpongeBob SquarePants, at least for adults. I think it's better for kids, too, but Norah digs the absorbant, yellow, and porous dude. There's just no accounting for taste!

I can't explain it. I mean I like it, usually in small doses. I suppose it's absurdist comedy with occasionally some fine songs.

Ah, go ask Fred Hembeck.

Spongebob is big in our house. Somehow, we all think it's funny, which I guess led to Spongebob trivia nights at the dinner table.

I agree - I find Spongebob to be silly and meaningless. I just was reading about the creator Stephen Hillenburg on Wikipedia and discovered he was a marine biologist before spongebob. But unfortunately there seems to be virtually nothing of educational significance in the show. Viewers basically learn nothing but sillyness and sarcasm. Wasted opportunity.
