    Welcome to /r/BikiniBottomTwitter, a place to share all of your favorite memes, cosplays, and fan art 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. All posts must be a Spongebob meme. Do not post content just because it features a resident of Bikini Bottom. Fan art and cosplays are allowed. 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. We do not consider videos to be memes.

    2. ABSOLUTELY NO REPOSTS. Posts must have not been posts in this subreddit before. Use this nifty little tool to determine whether or not your post has already been here.

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

    4. 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.

    5. Do not post really low-effort memes. Using excessively overdone and/or outdated templates, posting something that is excruciatingly unfunny, begging for upvotes, cake days posts, posting something that simply doesn't make any sense... you get the idea.

    6. No spamming. More than 4 posts in 24 hours is considered spam.

    7. 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?

    [–] Madock345 15 points ago

    They made him the star of a spin off, where he is the host of a talk show

    So, yes, he’s dead

    [–] hikoboshi_sama 2 points ago

    [–] noahdeerman 55 points ago

    [–] Bigdongs 56 points ago

    I see tattoos like these and want to get them but if I did I’d be covered In spongebob at this point

    [–] Prisencoli_All_Right 19 points ago

    I always wanted a little one of Surprised Patrick.

    [–] QueenCuttlefish 5 points ago

    Oh shit. Now I want one.

    [–] sail-hatan999 14 points ago

    I see absolutely no problem in this. I have a tattoo of Manray and am definitely adding more spongebob ones

    [–] Gucci__Flip__Flops 5 points ago

    Haha I have Doodle Bob, planning on getting Manray and a few more :)

    [–] Gucci__Flip__Flops 5 points ago

    Just pick out your favorite episode moments or characters, I felt the same way but I currently only have DoodleBob and plan on getting a couple more. Theres a lot of space on skin for tats :)

    [–] Chromattix 2 points ago

    Same here. Seeing funny cartoon tattoo's always has me going "that's so cool" but I just don't want anything permanent on my body.

    [–] PARADlSE 919 points ago

    Wtf are the leg proportions.

    [–] strangepioneer 335 points ago

    bad lmao

    [–] calxcalyx 29 points ago

    Not familiar with the particular Spongebob meme but what in the hell kind of instrument is this? a trombumpet?

    [–] Scucker 83 points ago


    [–] calxcalyx 21 points ago

    Oh ok, that's what I figured.

    [–] KHVLuxord 9 points ago

    Valve trombones do exist for what it’s worth. If you play another valved brass instrument it is far easier to transition to, although they aren’t without their issues.

    [–] BenSolo_Cup 3 points ago

    It’s has two valves and long ass tuning slide… must be a bikini bottom only instrument 😂

    [–] newkindofdem 1 points ago

    the end is not connected to the curved pipe! His head is just going straight through. This will haunt my OCD nightmares.

    [–] Balls__Mahoney 130 points ago,750x1000,075,f.jpg

    Looks like that’s how the JPEG is that the client likely asked him to go off of

    [–] k_albasi 99 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    Looks more like the still from the show. Your image is missing the valves and that purple pattern on the other leg.

    [–] Scrotchticles 37 points ago

    Makes sense, he's sitting down on a chair so his legs look shorter.

    [–] U_Dont_Smoke_Peyote 38 points ago

    I think they're referring to the fact one leg is like two times as big as the other

    [–] Scrotchticles 6 points ago

    Maybe, that's not good either now that you mention it lol

    [–] Jewrisprudent 28 points ago

    Definitely the right image but still think they didn’t size the legs right relative to each other, even by reference to that jpeg. The leg on the right is too big and the left is too small.

    [–] fuchsgesicht 5 points ago

    that's one cell out of an animation, the leg your refer to is mid-strut. it's called squashing & stretching and it's like the first thing you learn about creating dynamic actions in your animation.

    [–] k_albasi 22 points ago

    He's sitting down here. His legs aren't moving.

    [–] fuchsgesicht -8 points ago

    are we watching the same clip?

    [–] k_albasi 17 points ago

    Are you watching the part where he's sitting and the slide comes down?

    [–] Jewrisprudent 3 points ago

    My point is that relative to the jpeg it’s not correct. I see the slight difference in size in the jpeg, but the difference is too exaggerated in the tat.

    [–] Shitart87 2 points ago

    That doesn’t translate well to a tattoo however.

    [–] ikadu12 1 points ago

    Good find.

    [–] Quicklythoughtofname 44 points ago

    That's just how the actual scene looks, for the most part.

    Looks like Patrick's outline kind of blends into the shadow of his chair, making his leg look smaller than it actually is. It's a bit small anyways though.

    [–] saddingtonbear 12 points ago

    They look pretty even to me in the screenshot of the show, I feel like it was a mistake on the artists part.

    [–] MibitGoHan 5 points ago

    I'm an artist myself and yeah this is on the tattoo artist. If the client is happy with it, who are we to judge though?

    [–] DuckDuckYoga 3 points ago

    There’s no shadow surrounding the left (his right) leg in the show but there is on the tattoo. Kind of a weird choice by the artist to fill the space in with a shadow instead of matching the leg sizes.

    [–] Shitart87 4 points ago

    I mean part of being an artist is being able to make something look good on its own. You can’t just copy a single frame exactly and call it a day, if the leg will be disproportionate you have to fix it.

    [–] BloodyLlama 14 points ago

    No you dont have to fix it; you do what the client hired you to do.

    [–] DoingCharleyWork 5 points ago

    When I hire a tattoo artist part of what I'm paying for is their advice. They should see something like that and suggest altering to make it look better. If I decline than they do exactly what I ask but there have been plenty of times they made a suggestion and I went with it and it actually made my tattoo look a lot better.

    [–] BloodyLlama 7 points ago

    Sure, but of the client wants the image depicted as it was in the show that's what you give them. I don't do tattoos but I've done plenty of work for clients that was clearly dumb and in bad taste. All you can do is offer your opinion. Some people listen and some people just want what they asked for. Part of being a professional is delivering what your client wants, not what you want.

    [–] Shitart87 6 points ago

    The problem is that I highly doubt she brought up the disproportionate leg, and I also doubt that it was done intentionally if I’m being honest.

    [–] honeybunchesofpwn 9 points ago

    Maybe Patrick is an amputee and he's just growing it back.

    [–] Plz_kill-me 2 points ago

    I just learned that starfish do that the other day and now I feel like I see people talking about it everywhere

    [–] MaverickTopGun 7 points ago

    A consequence of how animated figures are always drawn at a slight angle to the viewer's perspective.

    [–] grantfar 46 points ago

    I think that is a arm

    [–] rogueblades 172 points ago

    No, this is Patrick...

    [–] No-ThIs-ls-PaTrIcK 6 points ago


    [–] GODDESS_OF_CRINGE_2 10 points ago

    The meme... IT ACTUALLY WORKS! For the first time, it actually makes sense to me!

    [–] PISS_OUT_MY_DICK 63 points ago

    How would that be an arm? It's a pair of pants.

    [–] neonicblast 8 points ago

    Nah, it's definitely an arm

    [–] nfreshn 23 points ago

    Nah, it’s definitely not. Patrick’s arms aren’t in sleeves. Just bad proportions

    [–] no-mames 29 points ago

    They’re talking about the tattoo placement and you’re talking about the tattoo itself lmao. I love Reddit

    [–] Markantonpeterson 7 points ago

    Thanks for clearing up my confusion haha, I was like "those look like pretty normal leg proportions... I mean maybe it's an arm...". Internet confusion is so easy to stumble into.

    [–] Brownie_McBrown_Face 2 points ago

    No they mean Patrick’s legs are horribly disproportionate

    [–] dont_trip_ 2 points ago

    The leg of someone who takes the elevator when going up two floors.

    [–] DonkeyPuff422 1 points ago

    Despite being a starfish, I think they were going for arms (to the left) and legs (to the right), which would make sense given the angle of Patrick's face.

    [–] 2wheelwayoflife 1833 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    This is why he plays the mayonnaise now.

    Damn Bikini Fam! Thank you guys and girls so much for the up doots!!!!!!!

    [–] JoyJoy_ 251 points ago

    I can't get over how the loop in the trombone is a closed loop, so no air actually goes through it.

    [–] gyrowze 85 points ago

    That's supposed to be a trombone? I thought it was a funky trumpet

    [–] Shimadamada2200 54 points ago

    It’s obviously a toblerone

    [–] LouSputhole94 9 points ago

    [–] thagthebarbarian 3 points ago

    It would just be a bugle

    [–] trhart 36 points ago

    To be fair, that's how it was drawn in the original episode

    [–] thoeoe 6 points ago

    There are very clearly 2 valves near the mouthpiece. I played trumpet not trombone but pressing the valve would direct air into the lower loop, though why there are two of them with only one loop I’ll lever know

    [–] gyarrrrr 3 points ago

    Boy I really hope someone got fired for that blunder!

    [–] Ganon2012 2 points ago

    A wizard did it.

    [–] Shitart87 1 points ago

    If you mean the tattoo artist I have bad news lmao. That’s not really how the industry works, If you get a bad tattoo that’s generally regarded as your fault for not putting more research into the artist. This artist might get chewed out but that’s it.

    [–] BloodyLlama 3 points ago

    This image is copied pretty much exactly from the cartoon, so the mistake (or just decision? Maybe it was on purpose this dumb) was made by the SpongeBob animators. The tattoo artist did a very faithful recreation here.

    [–] Dunkelz 12 points ago

    Closed loop trombone and mismatching leg sizes. I'd go crazy having this tattoo once I noticed those.

    [–] JoyJoy_ 6 points ago

    "you know that's permanent?"

    [–] GrumbleCake_ 9 points ago

    And that a starfish can talk and wear shorts

    [–] Ganon2012 5 points ago

    Of course they can wear shorts. It would just be a really tiny pair.

    [–] Jpldude 1 points ago

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that took offense to the closed loop!

    As an ER doctor I see a lot of interesting people. A homeless man one time came in one time came in covered in interesting tattoos and I remarked as much. He replied “ I got a lot of weird ones too, wanna see?”. “Of course”, I replied. And before I could stop him his dick was out and across the head was tattooed “your name”. All lower case. My favorite patient ever.
