The day I met Sponge Bob

by Terence

I’m tired and sleepy and I have to get up early tomorrow morning but I couldn’t resist blogging about this…

I met Sponge Bob Square Pants today at Nickelodeon’s presentation on the latest merchandising and licensing opportunities.

Personally, I think I was just there to satisfy my cousin’s craving to see Sponge Bob, and he’s older than me by the way ;p But I suppose he can take comfort in the fact that demographically, a large proportion of Sponge Bob’s fans are adults, so much so that they are even launching an adult range of Sponge Bob apparel and merchandise!

As some of you would know, I watch very little tv, and I don’t have cable. Before today, I’d never heard of this oddball character, nor imagined that he was such a big thing… I wonder what else I’ve been missing out on by not watching tv??

Anyway, we figured out that the eye holes for the guy wearing the Patrick Starfish outfit were at the eyebrows, but for the life of us we couldn’t see how the guy in the Sponge Bob outfit saw anything at all… and even if he did, he must be very short… look at the picture and you’ll see what I mean (Sponge Bob is the yellow thing on the left). But I’m sure the guy had trouble seeing and hearing… the photographer tried to get everyone in the pic to move closer and Sponge Bob didn’t move and refused to budge even after the woman tried pulling him closer… guess he may be a sponge, but he’s got ATTITUDE! Sponge Bob moves for no one!!! 😉
