You must be wondering what different in this series that it is home for one of the best memes? Well, some weird creatures living in the deep sea, having crazy characters will produce some dark and occasional dark humor and memes lover jump onto that very quickly.
Also, being a cartoon series for kids, it doesn’t get surreal or offending as you can mold your memes as you want to. For example, the show is almost entirely underwater, and in nearly every scene, characters are sitting around a bone fire passing on witty jokes. What else could be the best meme material? The main character is seen wearing SquarePants and doesn’t even explain why a character has legs or arms. These are just a few of the absurd logic of the show that makes it both surreal and funny and the best meme material.
Growing up in the meme era
Spongebob square pants memes were one of the founders of the meme era generation of the 21st century. Meme makers grew up making its memes. Several old memes were used in replying as a joke to friends. Handsome squid dancing meme took over the internet very soon. Every funny You Tubers used it smartly in the videos, and it was fitted wisely too.
One of the reasons its memes has proved to be a cultural staying is that it is straightforward to put these memes n almost every situation, e.g., the F.U.N song is appropriate called as it is as the f.u.n song. This song is simple yet wholesome. F is for friends who don’t talk to you. This line took over the internet, and the “no-friends” generation of the internet loved it.

The “Dank” nature of memes
Some memes are not for everyone; people with a dark sense of humor enjoy dark memes or dank memes. These memes are edgy and somewhat mysterious. There is a particular template used for this type of memes, and a select group of memes enjoys it a lot. Because of its witty comedy and remarks in the show. It became one of the favorite places for dank meme generators to make memes on it. But despite being witty an absurd comedy series it also became one of the hubs for wholesome memes.
It’s interesting that even having a whole ton of memes produced we haven’t seen the memes falling into the wrong hands yet, i.e., memes are not politicized by crazy people. In contrast, the unfortunate Pepe meme, that became full of dank or political memes even the fell in the hands of wrong people or extremists. SpongeBob memes are yet far away from these types of memes, and we hope that I remain so. We should be thankful to the creator of the show Stephen Hillenburg that his produced series was in safe hands and didn’t become the victim of political memes.
Although some of them became political in the recent trump era, when mocking SpongeBob meme took over the internet, it was challenging to keep it away from the hands of politics. Mocking SpongeBob is arguably one of the best produced by the series. The best and surreal memes have emerged from it. Something seemingly unwitty became what the internet wanted it to be, and a whole lot ton of memes was based on Spongebob making a check-in face with the caption on it.
