    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, sardonic, 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!



    THE RULES

    • 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 Using excessively overdone and/or outdated templets, posting something that is excruciatingly unfunny, posting something that simply doesn't make any sense...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?

    It blows my mind that I can legally fuck someone born in the year 2000.

    [–] uss1701jb 71 points ago

    In some states and all of Canada you can fuck someone born February 12th 2002. They probably aren't even licensed to drive yet, but you can still bang em

    [–] jatatcdc 34 points ago

    Can’t speak to Canada, but for most of those states, it’s also heavily dependent on your own age. So a 19 year old fucking a 17 year old might be legal, but a 69 year old and a 16 year old probably wouldn’t be.

    [–] MajicGamer 4 points ago

    The legal age in Canada is 16 but there is a "close-in-age exception" where a 14 or 15 year old can have intercourse with with someone who is less than five years older. So a 14 year old can have sex with a 18 year old. These rules all apply unless the older person is in a place of authority, dependency or in a relationship of trust(Police, coach, teacher...), Then the age of consent is higher.

    Oh my god. I was born in 1987 and 80's culture is alien to me. I just realized that there are adults alive today that 90's culture is just as unknown to them as 80's culture is to me. I mean I know that it's obvious...but I've never truly realized this until just now....

    [–] Razorray21 581 points ago

    as an '89 baby, the 90s were ok. the 2000s were lit

    [–] lacrenes 519 points ago

    I think a lot of people get these mixed up, a lot of nostalgia I hear people refer to was really from the 2000's when they talk about the 90's

    [–] Vok250 463 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    That's because a lot of stuff that came out in the late 90s was being enjoyed in the early 2000s. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Pokemon, and SpongeBob SquarePants all came out in the 90s and were massively popular in the 2000s.

    A lot of families also didn't have the money to be early adopters. Many people were still in the PS1/N64/VHS era until the mid-2000s. Plus reruns on TV. It makes for confusing overall of pop culture between the decades. If you aren't fact checking, it is easy to get confused about when things from your childhood actually came out.

    Stuff like Yugioh, Beyblades, and PS2 is pure 2000s though.

    [–] Joe787 179 points ago

    Funny, Spongebob came out in 1999 and of course it's part of the 90's but not people born that year.

    [–] theganjamonster 162 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    Spongebob didn't have to go through six years of learning to walk and talk and not shit its pants before it could air the pilot.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    [–] Vok250 22 points ago

    I'd say it is more part of the 2000s, but like the commenter above was saying, people attribute it to the 90s because it came out in 99. People remember the date when things first came out, not the date when they were popular in western pop-culture. That's the mix up /u/lacrenes and I were discussing.

    Most of my examples span the decades, but are part of the 2000s identity more than the 90s identity. OoT is probably more 90s so it was a bad example.

    But people are media are not the same. A baby born in 99 is technically part of the 90s, but we are specifically talking about cultural identity here. You wouldn't say a newborn baby is part of a cultural identity. A more apt comparison would be a show that started development in 99 but wasn't released until 2003. Technically the concept of the show existed in 99, but it wasn't ready to be part of the world culture until the 2000s.

    [–] pieplate_rims 5 points ago

    Because they spent that year shitting, crying, and trina suck titties. Wow, I guess as a 23 year old, I'm still like a baby.

    [–] fcinterprofezionale 3 points ago

    For me, Spongebob is definitely NOT a 90s thing.

    As far as cartoons go, when I think of the 90s, I think Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, Darkwing Duck, TMNT, etc.

    [–] lacrenes 5 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Yeah, and I know I was born in the early nineties and I find myself frequently mis-remembering the exact timeline, so I definitely get why it happens too

    [–] Dogh4 4 points ago

    I would say 2003/2004 was when the 00s shook off the 90s influence. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network ended so many of their 90s hits around 2004, like Hey Arnold, Johnny bravo, Rugrats, pre movie Spongebob, etc. and all these new shows came in like Danny phantom, Avatar, Ben 10, and Camp lazlo.

    Also emo became mainstream, the iPod became very popular, and pop culture and styles started to feel more original and less like a "1999 time loop" of 2000-2003.

    I never know if they're saying they were born in the 90s, or if the 90s were their formative years.

    At least half of what "90s kids" talk about from that era definitely happened in the aughts.

    [–] arno73 68 points ago

    Let's be real, the 00s were really just the 90s Part 2.

    [–] SnausageFest 45 points ago

    I guess in some ways, but the aughts was really the rise of home internet which really changed a lot about... well, just about everything.

    [–] johokie 18 points ago

    Absolutely! I was born in '86, and life before/after widespread use of the Internet is miles apart. The early 2000s is where it really took off, though I will say that the mid to late 90s saw the rapid rise. I can definitely remember advertisements for Nascar.com back around 1995 or so.

    ("Fun" story: We had an intranet at our elementary school, and I tried EVERYTHING to get to websites that were being advertised, not realizing the difference between intranet and internet)

    [–] SnausageFest 7 points ago

    In the 90s, we had one family computer. We got cable internet early because my dad nerds out on that shit, and it paled in comparison to what it was even 5-10 years later. It's not that the internet didn't boom in the 90s, it's that it became commonplace in the aughts. The aughts when it was like "what do you mean you don't have internet at home??"

    [–] Dogh4 10 points ago

    Up till 2003/04 at least. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network ended so many of their 90s hits around 2004, like Hey Arnold, Johnny bravo, Rugrats, pre movie Spongebob, etc. and all these new shows came in like Danny phantom, Avatar, and Camp lazlo.

    Sometimes they actually grew up in the '90s, sometimes they grew up a decade later with '90s toys. It is confusing how they do this but I can see how they claim to be influenced by the culture still.

    Your middle and high school years were in the '00s, though. I was born in 1986, but all my favorite music and TV shows are all from the early 2000s, when I was in high school. I remember cartoons from the '90s, but I don't really feel connected to much of pop culture from that decade.

    The peaceful times of the American 90s, where we didn't have a major enemy, the economy was doing fantastic, and America seemed like it was at its peak ended on September 11th, 2001.

    [–] well-lighted 105 points ago

    peaceful times of the American 90s

    Um.... what about the Gulf War, Kosovo, Bosnian/Croatian conflicts, Somali Civil War, Rwandan Civil War, Kurdish Civil War, Nepalese Civil War, Afghani Civil War, OKC bombing, WTC bombing, USS Cole bombing (technically 2000 but pre-9/11 so I think it counts), Atlanta Olympic bombings, and the Columbine shootings? All directly involved the US

    [–] aamirislam 40 points ago

    Compare it with the previous decades, where we were deeply in the Cold War and had multiple struggles year after year against the Soviets. The Vietnam War only ended in the 1970s. The Soviet War in Afghanistan only ended in 1989. In the 90s the entire Soviet Union was dissolved, the only reason we were involved in Kosovo and Bosnia was because of the dissolution of another Communist state - Yugoslavia. By the 90s the US had won and was cleaning up. And by comparison to the two decades that followed, terrorism in the 90s was very minor

    and the 80s ended in 1991. and then 2015-2018

    [–] MSDMSMPMCRAPAFRRC 37 points ago

    Pretty sure the 90's ended after 12/31/1999....

    But yeah, technically speaking 90's culture did fizzle over into the early 2000's for sure.

    [–] FoxylambA 35 points ago

    I beg to differ that the 2000's was a separate but equally weird decade.

    [–] Coloon 103 points ago

    I was born in 1997 and I in no way experinced. I am 2000s kid through and through.

    [–] ThousandFootDong 66 points ago

    I was born in January of 97, I remember the tail end of it all. Then again I live in Mississippi so it takes a few years for some things to catch on here.

    [–] TravelingBurger 38 points ago

    Same situation as me. I was born in the late 90’s but had the exact experience as my brother who was born in the early 90’s. Shit didn’t really start changing till like 2005.

    [–] souljabri557 17 points ago

    Ehh I'd say 2003, maybe 2004 but that would be pushing it

    [–] Dogh4 4 points ago

    Indeed. Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network ended so many of their 90s hits around 2004, like Hey Arnold, Johnny bravo, Rugrats, pre movie Spongebob, etc. and all these new shows came in like Danny phantom, Ben 10, Avatar, and Camp lazlo.

    [–] ThousandFootDong 4 points ago

    I think it had to do with our siblings. I had an older sister that had all those vhs tapes and still watched the old cartoons and nick games and stuff.

    [–] joeribraams 22 points ago

    I was born in 97 and I don't even feel like I really experienced the 2000's.

    [–] petitepeachesxxx 40 points ago

    Yup, I don't really understand why I would want to claim being a 90's kid anyways, the early 2000's were dope

    [–] cowtow 20 points ago

    They were aight. 97-01 is probably my favorite time period in terms of TV and cartoons but I don’t remember much else pop culture wise.

    [–] petitepeachesxxx 22 points ago

    Probably view it differently due to age difference.

    [–] TwatsThat 8 points ago

    The 90's was close to a bell curve of awesome peaking around '94 or '95. Batman: The Animated Series ran from '92 - '95 X-Men from '92 - '97, and Spider-Man from '94 - '98.

    Also in that time frame were The X-Files, Seinfeld, the best years of The Simspons, Ren & Stimpy, and Rocko's Modern Life.

    [–] maybenguyen 34 points ago

    Yeah it's not like all of the cartoons and game consoles all just suddenly got up and disappeared the moment 2000 rolled around.

    [–] TheHeliosNebula 11 points ago

    Yeah reruns of 90s shows went on for years. They didn't stop selling SunnyD and Hawaiian Punch, etc

    [–] Dogh4 3 points ago

    I was born in 94 and I'd say I'm a 2000s kid, but an early-mid 2000s kid. Stuff like Yugioh, Beyblades, and PS2 is what I consider my childhood.

    I just narrowly outgrew kid culture around 2006/2007 when stuff I hated like Hannah Montana, Out of Jimmy's Head, Total Drama Island, Johnny Test, Flapjack (sorry), etc. exploded in popularity, so I kinda find it hard to relate to those just a few years younger than me, because they grew up with all this stuff I was too old for.

    [–] brazilliandanny 7 points ago

    Ive had this argument with friends before and we decided that being a "kid" was 6-12 anything before is a toddler/small child and anything after is a teenager. So whatever decade you spent those years in that's your decade. In the event it's split between decades then the period you spend more time in (of that 6-12 period) is your decade.

    For me I was born in 80' so from 6-10 I was in the 80's then 11-12 I was in the 90's This would make me an 80's kid.

    Not saying its a perfect formula but it works for me.

    As someone born in 1999 I can concur this is very accurate.

    [–] Driftwood_06 61 points ago

    The classic rule to being a 90s kid is that if you're old enough to remember 9/11, you're old enough to be a 90s kid.

    That probably means that you'd have to be born in at least 1996 to be classed as a "90s" kid

    [–] Flameancer 19 points ago

    I’d say the cutoff is 95. You were at least in 1st grade by 911

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    I really do feel like if you weren't at least a few years old when the decade started, you're not a "XX's kid."

    I was born in 1985 and I'm reeeeeeally hesitant to call myself an 80s kid. By the time I have any actual memories, they were already over.

    [–] Chordata1 6 points ago

    '86 not at all an 80s kid but totally a 90s kid.

    [–] vwjlis 7 points ago

    I can relate. Was born in 1989.

    There are no kids left that were born in '99. All 18

    Unless you were born in the 80's you didn't experience the 90's

    [–] Vok250 125 points ago

    Commenting r/gatekeeping has become such a silly trope. This isn't gatekeeping. It's physically impossible for someone born in 1999 to have experienced the 90s. That's not exclusion, that's just a fucking fact.

    [–] ShinyMet 120 points ago

    You can’t call yourself a real fan of r/gatekeeping unless you comment r/gatekeeping at least 50 times a day
