The Characters in SpongeBob SquarePants Are the Result of Nuclear Testing

SpongeBob SquarePants is one of those classic, timeless ideas: It's about a talking sea sponge who lives in a pineapple at the bottom of the sea whose mascot is a meowing snail and who works in a restaurant owned by a crab. OK, sure, it sounds kind of bizarre when you put it like that, but what cartoon premise doesn't? Children's cartoons are metaphors; it's not like the creators were trying to say that these characters are literally mutants or something.

The Theory:

According to one strangely convincing theory posted on Reddit, the show is really about nuclear testing. SpongeBob and his friends look and act the way they do because of their exposure to the radiation from atomic bombs dropped in the area around Bikini Bottom, where the show is set.

Also, "bikini" is ancient Mongolian for "atomic chain reaction resulting in a massive explosion."

Why It's Not That Crazy:

First of all, the fact that a talking sponge lives in a place called Bikini Bottom isn't some roundabout reference to human contraception -- the show is set under a real place called Bikini Atoll, which is confirmed by the official Nickelodeon-written synopsis. And here's where it gets interesting: Back in 1946, the U.S. government detonated a couple of atomic bombs there, one of which was set off underwater. The resulting explosion looked like this:

SpongeBob fans might be familiar with this particular mushroom cloud, considering that similar explosions are used on the show whenever a character so much as drops a pin on the floor:

Suddenly, all the weirdness in this cartoon starts making sense: The characters were normal sea creatures until the radiation from the explosion mutated them into sentient freaks. Even the landscape changed, allowing giant pineapples to grow out of the ground. Not only does this theory make sense, but it also provides answers to a lot of previously unanswered questions that have baffled fans for years, such as "How the hell did Mr. Krabs father a goddamn whale?"

Two good introductions. The idea of helping out fellow expats is an interesting one which I would tentatively support. Could be a good idea although at the same time the lines become blurry very quickly. Many would rightfully not support helping out a convicted felon, but I known of people who regularly go to Prey Sah (the local prison) to give packages to friends inside. I think if the circumstances of the arrest are shady and people know the person personally, it changes everything. Interesting idea though I'm not sure it would pick up quickly unless the person in question was a member of CEO.

Apologies for posting before introducing myself, terribly rude of me :oops:
I'm from the UK and whilst never having having set foot in Cambodia i have lived, worked and travelled in Asia, Middle East, and Central America so have a general idea of the glories and pratfalls of expat life. Not to mention the necessity of understanding the culture and learning the language. Current plan is to be in PP September time and if it feels right whip me CELTA out and start accosting school admins. I will inevitably at some point start asking completely silly questions so be gentle :hattip:
Yes i was on 440 Huge prize to anyone who guesses my ID
