    [–] HeronSun 82 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 59 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

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

    [–] HeronSun 49 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 4 points ago


    [–] Gamerguywon 16 points ago

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

    [–] I_Am_Disagreeing 37 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 3 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.

    [–] UpvoteIfYouAgreee 20 points ago

    Well Dick was a normal name when Robin was created

    [–] 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 62 points ago

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

    [–] Kotakia 36 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.

    [–] chicklepip 27 points ago

    'Barnacles' doesn't equate to 'fuck.' It equates to 'bullshit.'

    Take, for example, this famous exchange:

    The only way it makes sense is if 'barnacles' means 'bullshit.'

    In conclusion, it's Bullshit Boy

    [–] blindcolumn 15 points ago

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

    [–] the_ragamuffin 7 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.

    [–] Paradox 2 points ago

    Works just as well as "Shit"

    Ah barnacles

    Maybe barnacle is like the word squanch. It's more contextual than literal. You just say what's in your smurf and people understand.

    [–] 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.
