  • I'm going to be sick

    I want to know who green lighted this episode of Spongebob in the first place. In this episode, Spongebob gets a splinter in his thumb and tries everything to remove it. I have to point out that splinters are not like that at all. I know this is a cartoon and logic is usually thrown out, but Spongebob pulled it and it wouldn't come out at all. Splinters can be removed by pulling it, but for the sake of the plot, it keeps going. Squidward was an absolute jerk in this episode, all he constantly does is make fun of Spongebob and lies to him about what would happen if the splinter isn't pulled out. Then when Patrick came to "help" he just does a series of unfunny and very gross stuff to remove the splinter, so he's has no purpose. As the splinter stays in Spongebob, the thumb gets bigger. Thumbs don't do that when they have a splinter in them and it comes off as being really gross. Mr. Krabs eventually finds out and pulls the splinter out, and all of this green pus comes out and floods the restaurant. It's just very disgusting and guaranteed to make anyone sick. To end it all, Squidward injures himself when his shift ended 2 minutes ago. I normally have no problem with gross stuff on a show, but this episode went overboard with crude humor and the ending was just sickening. I have a pretty strong stomach, but stuff like this does NOT belong in Spongebob at all. Whoever the creator of this episode was I hope that person is fired or never allowed to create another episode again. These writers need to avoid coming up with junk like this and start being creative. Stay far away from this episode
