* UnintentionallySympathetic: Squidward mutilating himself with the cash register at the end and ''still'' not getting the workers' compensation like he wanted. While he was being a jerk to [=SpongeBob=] earlier, his punishment just came off as way too harsh and felt more like the typical Squid torture than an actual karmic comeuppance. It doesn't help that only ''he'' gets "karma" for his actions and ''not'' [[KarmaHoudini Patrick]], who technically treated [=SpongeBob=] ''a lot'' worse than Squidward did.

to:

* TheScrappy: Patrick, for ignoring Spongebob's issue and thoughtlessly making the problem worse, combined with [[KarmaHoudini not getting fairly punished for his actions.]]
* UnintentionallySympathetic: Squidward mutilating himself with the cash register at the end and ''still'' not getting the workers' compensation like he wanted. While he was being a jerk to [=SpongeBob=] earlier, his punishment just came off as way too harsh extreme and felt more like the typical Squid torture than an actual karmic comeuppance. It doesn't help that only ''he'' gets "karma" for his actions and ''not'' [[KarmaHoudini Patrick]], who technically treated [=SpongeBob=] ''a lot'' worse than Squidward did.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In real life, splinters don't swell up like that and they especially don't spew pus when removed.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In real life, splinters don't swell up like that and they especially don't spew pus when removed. Of course, that may be due to Patrick further infecting the wound by ''putting a garbage "cold press" to ease the swelling''.

%%* * WhatAnIdiot: See TookALevelInJerkass[=/=][[TookALevelInDumbass Dumbass]].Seriously, how did Patrick think smashing the splinter with a hammer and covering it with garbage would be even ''remotely'' helpful?

* NeverLiveItDown: The entire premise, which has cemented it as one of the most despised episodes in the series.

* DudeNotFunny: Any scene involving [[TookALevelInJerkass Doc]][[TookALevelInDumbass tor]] [[WhatAnIdiot Pat]][[TheScrappy rick]].



* DudeNotFunny: When Squidward nearly dies as a result from a car crash (ItMakesSenseInContext), '''''the Bikini Bottomites cheer!'''''
** Also, [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick using their slide-whistles at injured patients at the very end of the episode.
-->'''[=MoBrosStudios=]''': Huh. Generally annoying people? [[FelonyMisdemeanor No, that's worthy of DEATH]]. Making fun of the sick and dying? [[{{Irony}} That's PERFECTLY okay!]]

* NauseaFuel / NightmareFuel / {{Squick}}: WHERE TO BEGIN?!?! This episode is certainly one that should not be watched by people with weak stomachs or are planning to eat. The icing on the cake is when Mr. Krabs pulls out the splinter, and is greeted by a stream of [[SubvertedTrope confetti]].......[[DoubleSubverted and then]] a ''long'' stream of pus. Anybody got any BrainBleach?
