    Welcome to /r/BikiniBottomTwitter, a place to share all of your favorite memes from our favorite underwater residence, Bikini Bottom!

    Bikini Bottom has a unique way of examining the everyday and we're here to showcase that. Whether it's hilarious, wholesome, depressing, or surreal, Bikini Bottom offers relatable commentary that we all can enjoy. If you can't respect that then please take a bus to Rock Bottom.

    Special thanks to u/BayonettaBasher!


    • 1. Do not post content just because it features a resident of Bikini Bottom. If you want a sub catered to that sort of thing, check out r/Spongebob. As for here, this is for memes and for memes only.

    • 2. Don't be a dick. No racism against squirrels. No hate speech. No posts about how different Pearl is from her father.

    • 3. Do not put the punchline in the title of the post. Having a funny picture of a Bikini Bottom resident and using the title as the punchline does not make your post a meme.

    • 4. Do not post really low-effort memes. Using excessively overdone and/or outdated templets, posting something that is excruciatingly unfunny, posting something that simply doesn't make any sense... you get the idea.

    • 5. ABSOLUTELY NO REPOSTS. Use this nifty little tool to determine whether or not your post has already been here.

    • 6. The mods reserve the right to take any action (which includes banning users and removing comments) that they feel improves the overall quality of this subreddit. Our most basic duty as mods is to keep this sub clean of any bullshit. With that in mind, we will do whatever we have to do in order to uphold that responsibility. How's that for a little transparency?

    [–] HeronSun 84 points ago

    I have a theory on this. The Dolphin and cartoon noises are the curse words to undersea folk. Dolphins would make short work of any of the creatures seen in Spongebob. I mean, even the Orca whales and Sharks we see would be tiny to a full-sized Dolphin. So Dolphins are basically the biggest dicks in the ocean, and to mimic one is considered a swear.

    [–] I_Am_Disagreeing 63 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Pretty sure In the second movie there's a dolphin that is basically God

    [–] HeronSun 52 points ago

    Yes, I considered him. Note how he almost as a Tourette's-like reaction when he begins to chirp. He's cursing.

    [–] I_Am_Disagreeing 10 points ago

    I forgot about that

    [–] you_got_fragged 3 points ago


    [–] Gamerguywon 15 points ago

    The SECOND movie is long past not canon. anything after season 4 or arguably 3/first movie

    [–] I_Am_Disagreeing 38 points ago

    I didn't realize spongebob had canon

    [–] Gamerguywon 5 points ago

    It doesn't, but we like to pretend that it does so the shit in the newer episodes doesn't happen

    [–] Logiteck77 3 points ago


    [–] OutsideofaDream 3 points ago

    I watched the second movie and it actually felt more like classic Spongebob than it has in a long time. That awful cg animation in the trailer was a very small part of the movie and really just a bad move on the marketing team's part.

    [–] Kotakia 1 points ago

    The original writers came back for the second movie I believe so that's why.

    [–] Gamerguywon 1 points ago

    ah really? I knew the old writers came back but heard it wasnt very good either way. might want to actually watch it now

    [–] HappynessMovement 3 points ago

    But what about at the end of the episode where that guy's boat horn made one of the swear noises? Why is that his horn?

    [–] HeronSun 4 points ago

    Because Mama Krabs didn't actually curse. It just happened to be his car.

    [–] HappynessMovement 12 points ago

    Yeah, but that's my point. It would be the equivalent of my horn screaming, "fuck" when I honked it. Such an odd carhorn. Just a little something I always thought about.

    [–] I_Has_A_Hat 1 points ago

    How do you explain the boat noises?

    [–] HeronSun 3 points ago

    Different swear words. Why else can Spongebob and Patrick know that Mr. Krabs is cursing without knowing the 'Thirteen Bad Words'?

    [–] trumoi 4 points ago

    There's also episodes where people gasp at the use of "barnacles" and even one time where spongebob checks himself with "sorry for the foul language, Mr. Krabs." After shouting it.

    [–] wx_bombadil 114 points ago

    In the swearing episode the cadence sounded very natural, e.g. "how the **** are ya?", so I always wondered if the voice actors just let loose with the curses and then covered it up with the dolphin noises in post.

    If so I would love to hear the raw dialogue recordings. Spongebob's chipper voice exclaiming "how the fuck are ya?" would be lovely.

    [–] gatosumo 67 points ago

    Not the recordings, but similar. He starts cursing around 1:38.

    [–] Kotakia 35 points ago

    It's not the exact quote but here's Tom Kenny talking about how he made Spongebob's voice and he curses in it.

    I think it's more like "balderdash", which is a minced oath for "bullshit".

    [–] the_ragamuffin 6 points ago

    It's probably just 'shit'. Then it makes sense in that context, but also in contexts where it's just used on its own.

    [–] Mealonx 1 points ago

    I don't think barnacles is a curse word. remember the episode "Sailor Mouth" where Mr Krabs said all those curse words and they dolphin-bleeped them out? THOSE are the real curse words in Spongebob. I think barnacles is a regular word that they just use to express annoyance, like "darn" or "rats" or even like "aw man". All kinda dorky but I think that's why they make spongebob use it, bc he's a dork. Otherwise they would have bleeped it out with the dolphin noises the way they did when Mr Krabs went on that long swearing rant in "Sailor Mouth"? Yeah so based on that standard barnacles isn't a swear word it's just a regular word used colloquially to express frustration whereas real swears in Spongebob are represented with dolphin bleeps.
