Why is it not the least bit disturbing to see Spongebob Squarepants meet a variety of unfortunate fates? I’ll tell you why: because Spongebob perseveres.

Most recently, we saw Spongebob take a canister of pepper spray to the eyeball here.
Before that, he appeared facing a wall with his hands up, clearly the subject of a citizen’s arrest here.
