In the year 2016, SpongeBob SquarePants is no longer just a Nickelodeon TV show.
It's also the inspiration for literally all of the memes on the internet.
(OK, fine, not all of the memes...but maybe?)
But guess what? You're not the only one who loves those memes — we found out at Comic-Con that Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, totally loves them as much as we do.
"There really seems to be a never-ending stream of SpongeBob memes that are coming out now," Kenny told BuzzFeed. "I kind of dig it because I’m a big recycler, I’m all about using all parts of the buffalo."
"It used to be, you make the episode, you put it out there, you watch it a million times…and that’s your relationship with it. But now people kind of cut and paste and repurpose it and mash it up in ways that are really creative and interesting, I think it’s really fun."
"Really, it’s like, anything that’s taken out of context from the show functions as a meme... Some of them just come in handy any time — like any time somebody is taking too long to do something, like hogging the bathroom or whatever, [it reads,] “Two hours later."
And although he hasn't seen them all, he is very aware when one comes out because, well, people tend to come up to tell him about the new SpongeBob meme of the day.
But who can blame them? SpongeBob memes are never not funny.
