I remember the first time I saw SpongeBob Squarepantson TV at a friend's house when I was a little kid. I literally couldn't believe what I was seeing. 'What the heck?' I remember thinking, 'this is...incredible.' I'd seen plenty of surreal cartoons before—Ren & Stimpy, for example, but none with this kind of hyperactive energy. My tiny mind was blown. Fast-forward two decades and the internet is now brimming with SpongeBob memes that often make light of familiar scenarios that come with being an adult, like paying rent and doing taxes. Our generation grew up with SpongeBob's aquatic fantasy world, and now we're projecting our millennial problems into Bikini Bottom to create relatable memes. It's beautiful, if you think about it. Here's a bunch of relatable SpongeBob memes for anyone who's old enough to remember watching that first episode on Nickelodeon.
