*** Worth noting that Squidward's question in "Band Geeks" was, "How many of you have played musical instruments before?" We joke about Patrick ''thinking'' that mayonnaise is an instrument all the time, but it's easy to forget that (considering the wording of Squidward's question) Patrick has also ''played'' mayonnaise (and horseradish...which [[NoodleIncident Squidward already knew about]]) as an instrument. ...Use your imagination on this one.

Added DiffLines:

* Some have noted that, in the underwater world that the show depicts, "barnacle" is a euphemism similar to "shit" ("This is a load of barnacles...", "Aw, barnacles!", etc), so Barnacle Boy's name doesn't make much sense. However, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy (being human) probably did not realize this until after they chose their names. It would also explain why no one underwater takes Barnacle Boy seriously-- imagine a hero named "Shit Lad". People would probably make a ButtMonkey out of him, too.

*** Not hard to see why, but however, there are many episodes out there that are counteractive to this, as well as the fact that he literally walks of a construction site a second later. The problem is if Patrick WAS a sociopath, he wouldn't need to do that stuff. So, if Patrick DOES know he's stupid, why does he act it? Well, there are a couple things in motion. Firstly, notice that his friends with certainty are Spongebob, Sandy...that's it. Meanwhile, Spongebob's friendly enough to befriend a neighbor hood and a half, as well as been Patricks friend for life since infancy. And plus, there is also the line in ''New Student Starfish''...

Added DiffLines:

* Upon first watch, it doesn't seem to make sense that the thing that causes Spongebob to leave Bikini Bottom in "Whobob Whatpants" is being yelled at by Mr. Krabs as opposed to Patrick, since in this kind of plot what's supposed to be the last straw is being told off by your best friend. But remember, according to "Welcome to the Chum Bucket", Mr. Krabs has always served as a semi-father figure to Spongebob, and being rejected by a father is much, MUCH more upsetting than being rejected by a friend.

** Forget the Krusty Krab for a moment. What about its rival business, the Chum Bucket? Chum is made out of ''dead fish''! Considering that most of the citizens of Bikini Bottom ''are'' fish and Plankton needs to get the ingredients for his food from ''somewhere''...

** There's also the fact that the characters live in salt water, whereas goldfish are freshwater fish.

* In "Suds", [=SpongeBob=] gets the suds and is cured via the "sponge treatment". The [=SpongeBob=] [[TheWikiRule wiki]] says that the suds are caused by a buildup of soap and bubbles within the sponge, and the treatment involves washing out the excess soap. Remember, [=SpongeBob=] is a sea sponge, not a kitchen sponge. And kitchen sponges, after being used to wash dishes, go unused until the dishes have to be washed again. So in the meantime, kitchen sponges get the suds! Therefore, they get the suds more often than sea sponges!

* The police of Bikini Bottom seem to be pretty dumb, and knowing that the lives of the citizens of Bikini Bottom depend on these idiots, just gives a bad feeling.

Added DiffLines:

* In the episode "Suds", [=SpongeBob=] comes down with the titular condition after he leaves his refrigerator/freezer open overnight, and his entire house freezes as a result. Obviously, that's not how it works-- if someone were to have his freezer open all night, the items inside would just spoil, and ''maybe'' the temperature of the room might drop a few degrees, but it wouldn't turn one's entire house into an ice cube. But maybe it's different in the [=SpongeBob=] universe because it's underwater.

* The episode "Hooky" is about drug addiction. Think about it: Patrick warns [=SpongeBob=] not to get too 'too high' on the hooks, what Mr. Krabs says about 'what happens when you don't float back down' is a metaphor for dying of an overdose (you get 'too high' and don't come back down, because you're dead). By the end of the episode, [=SpongeBob=] gives into his temptation to the hooks and exclaims he's 'hooked!' (addicted) and finds it impossible to become unhooked, a metaphor for how difficult it is to overcome an addiction once it's set in. He cannot get unhooked without the help of his friends (intervention). This episode was basically teaching kids a really valuable lesson about drug addiction in a subtle way which kids couldn't possibly understand until they were older.
