Let me be the first to say:

2003-04-21 11:03:46 AM  
So in other words, it's just an aquarium with a lousy starfish, a sponge, a lobster and a crab in it. Big deal.

"However, the exhibit will not contain a live version of Sandy Squirrel, which is a squirrel that breathes underwater with the help of a spacesuit."

Yeah, leave out the only thing that would actually be interesting to see in real life.

They are recreating Fort Wayne, Indiana inside of a mall?
2003-04-21 11:07:12 AM  
"The exhibit titled SeaCrits of Bikini Bottom will house live aquatic versions of the characters from the cartoon show..."

I get the star, crab, and lobster. But where are they going to find SpongeBob??

/not hip to the Squarepants scene
2003-04-21 11:07:14 AM  
wow, I'm glad I checked this link....
2003-04-21 11:07:28 AM  
Hmm, you mean that there is this sponge that lives in a bikini bottom with crabs?
2003-04-21 11:07:30 AM  
Actually, Sandy's last name is Cheeks.

Pretty clever.
2003-04-21 11:08:00 AM  
that was a waste of 45 seconds of my life.

Mall Of America Builds `Bikini Bottom'

So, he lives in a chick's pants?

Should watch that show sometime.....
2003-04-21 11:09:11 AM

F is for fire that burns down the whole town
U's for uranium... bombs
N is for no suvivors when you.....

2003-04-21 11:09:22 AM  
hehe and then you wasted another 45 seconds posting about it.
2003-04-21 11:10:26 AM  
I bet they use no more than a 10 gallon tank and some pretty gravel

Kre8iv_gal: I get the star, crab, and lobster. But where are they going to find SpongeBob??

A small household cleaning sponge, I assume.

Oh boy - a sponge!

We're not ugly... WE STINK!
2003-04-21 11:12:15 AM  
Last Halloween, I was going to go as Spongebob No Pants.

2003-04-21 11:12:18 AM  
I. Don't. Care.
2003-04-21 11:13:07 AM  
Where they get the sponge Educationally NSFW
2003-04-21 11:15:04 AM  

This show is 100% pure genius:

Spongebob: Does this mean I get to make a Krabby Patty now?

Narrator: Oh you cant make a Krabby Patty without understanding the phrase: POOP. [the words show up on screen]

Spongebob: POOP?

Narrator: Once you understand POOP, youll understand your place at the Krusty Krab. But what is POOP mean? [Sponge shrugs his shoulders] Its actually a carefully organized code. Watch closely. [the rest of the word appears behind each letter] People Order Our Patties.

Spongebob: Oh, POOP! [Sponge looks content]

Narrator: Looks like Mr. Squarepants understands POOP! [cut to a guy walking up to the counter] Heres a typical customer. I wonder what he wants. Well, if we just remember POOP, we can figure it out.

2003-04-21 11:17:08 AM  
Spongebob is the stupidest show ever. If you like it i implore you to jump off the closest building you can find that is over 5 stories. Its scary how many of us Americans actually like watching that show! Stupid people scare me.
2003-04-21 11:18:22 AM  
Spongebob is cool. I started watching it with my kids and though it was kinda stupid, but then I actually decided to pay attention and thought it was actually pretty clever.

Patrick is my favorite
2003-04-21 11:20:16 AM  
Underwater Adventures, the aquarium that will build the exhibit, says kids will also get to pet some of the sea creatures.

Yeah, lobsters like being petted...

2003-04-21 11:22:29 AM  
My kids watch it but I refuse to just because of that friggin theme song. Stays in my head for days.
2003-04-21 11:22:39 AM  
That show sure as hell isn't for kids. During the stink breath episode he's looking for some peanuts, and where does he look? The damn bathroom.

I loved SpongeBob from the first time my kid turned it on. haven't seen it lately, if it's gone downhill. But if this exhibit doesn't have Sandy Cheeks in it, we are SO not there.

I've noticed that a lot of the kids' shows are much more sophisticated than they seem to be at first. It's like a bunch of geeks gets to go wild with the animation equipment.

Hansenator - you're a traitor to humanity and I hope your government locks you away for 101 years.

I thought Barney was bad.
2003-04-21 11:31:11 AM  
Freak, that's because the show is heavily laced with the homosexual innuendo. I think SpongeBob and Tinky-Winky get it on whenever they're not working.
2003-04-21 11:32:49 AM  
What? No Squidward?!

Whirljack, I'm not sure where you're from (and I notice you are studiously not telling us), but in this country we have a thing called "Freedom of Speech" in which a commoner is not thrown in the clink for expressing negative opinions about a television show. You're probably French aren't you?
2003-04-21 11:34:50 AM  
Funny,I call my johnson SpongeBob,'cause it gets thicker when wet.

j/k,bad joke. ;)
2003-04-21 11:35:44 AM  
Links like this make it hard to start flamewars between pinko hippie liberals and fascist war-mongering neoconservatives, dammit!
2003-04-21 11:36:46 AM  
Hey Dattaway, any info on that picture? The backdrop looks like downtown Ogden,UT. Is it? Just curious.
2003-04-21 11:37:52 AM  
I used to think SpongeBob was some sort of giant gay block of cheese. To this day I've never watched the show.
2003-04-21 11:39:03 AM  
Spongebob's pretty cool. He's got nothin' on Ren and Stimpy though.
2003-04-21 11:40:44 AM  
Ok the only adults that understand SpongeBob SquarePants are skivvy stoners.

Now lemme hit that damn thing........

SpongeBob Rules!
2003-04-21 11:42:01 AM  
Kids, here is where SpongeBob came from:

Here is the link to that spongebob picture from our farkers in Utah.
2003-04-21 11:49:48 AM  

...oh, and here's a picture of some weirdo riding a bike in a SpongeBob costume.

Huzzah for complementary journalism!

Can't get in to SploogeBob. I want Rocco back!
2003-04-21 11:51:08 AM  
They should give things a least 10 years before putting any money into flavor of the day stuff. You think anyone would go to Ninja Turtle land?
2003-04-21 11:51:39 AM  

There are gonna be some seriously wigged-out kids when they see just how fookin scary crustaceans look up close.

...and bored when they see just how exciting real sponges are.

2003-04-21 11:59:52 AM  
The King of Toast, I'm not sure where you're from (east of Denver is pretty vague), but in this country we have a thing called "facetiousness," which is sometimes used on a thing called "the Internet" to provocate responses from the low-IQ crowd. You're probably an idjit, aren't you?
2003-04-21 12:01:37 PM  
However, the exhibit will not contain a live version of Sandy Squirrel, which is a squirrel that breathes underwater with the help of a spacesuit.

If they're not going to put forth an effort, I'm not interested.

Ladies, why shop at Vicky's when you can look THIS hot?
