A quick Spongebob contest

I tried really, really hard to hate Spongebob Squarepants. I mean, he’s insipid. He’s inane. He lives in a pineapple under the sea!

But it was not to be. I find him hilarious, against all of my better judgment. Alas.

If you (and your kids) do, too, you might be interested to know that I have a copy of the Spongebob’s Pest of the West DVD sitting here, just waiting to go somewhere it’ll be properly appreciated. Could it be to you? Maybe!

For a chance to win this DVD, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 20th, 2008. One comment per person and all that jazz. Winner to be determined by random number generation and electric jellyfish.



  1. Oh my, could I be the first comment? ust so happens my beloved nephew has just arrived to NJ for a visit from AZ and he happens to be a Spongebob fan.

  2. Last contest I was in the 400’s…maybe less than 10 is lucky!!!

  3. It’s the best day ever! (If I win.)

  4. I’m with you—tried to hate it, but I ended up liking it. My 9-year-old got his little sister to like it. So funny to hear her singing the songs!

  5. Being #4 is definantly risky for a win. lol But then again I have been all other numbers and never won … ha ha!!

  41. me me me me me me

  42. Oh, I do hope I win this one. Sadly, I watch the show along with my kids and find myself entertained. Thanks!

  43. My daughter loves Spongebob!

  44. Um, is it wrong that I’m 25 and don’t have kids but still want this? 😉

  45. That’s one cartoon that doesn’t drive me crazy when the kids are watching it 🙂

  46. This would be cool!

  47. I am a huge Sandy fan!!

  48. Please pick me, oh pretty random number generator!

  49. Please pick me!!!

  50. We are watching SpongeBob RIGHT NOW. It’s actually quite clever – too bad it gets such a bad rap! Thanks for the contest, Mir.

  51. SpongeBob is a favorite in this house (well, with at least one of us)…

  52. I’m in. Why not. Can’t resist a sponge who is best friends with a squirrel.

  53. I have resisted the charms of Spongebob, but alas, my son has not.

  54. My kids love him, alas. I’d love to have it.

  55. My husband has made a very rational argument as to why SpongeBob is a good role model, as far as the choices go in the cartoon world:

    1. He is gainfully employed
    2. He does his very best each day at work.
    3. He has a pet he takes care of.
    4. He’s friendly to everyone, no matter how dumb or cranky they are.
    5. He does his best to have a good attitude each and every day.

    Dude’s got a point.

    So, anyway, we’d be over the moon to win the DVD! Thanks for the contest.

  56. My son loves Spongebob! I secretly enjoy the show as well, but don’t tell him that!

  57. Square Bob sponge pants. This is my sons favorite program.

  58. Daddy and the girls *love* SB. Mom . . . not so much 🙂

  59. Oh how the kidlings like their Squarepants!

  60. I’d love to win some peace and quiet…

  61. My boys LOVE SBSP and I do not. It has become their special thing to do with their Grandpa who is coming to visit in a few short weeks. They would be thrilled beyond belief if we won this dvd! thanks 😉

  78. My kids love Patrick more than I’m comfortable with. I’m a Sandy fan!

  79. He is pretty goofy, ol’ SquareBob Spongepants. (yes, I know, but it makes the grandkids laugh. And he is a square(ish) sponge in pants, so…)

    Anyway, the random number generator has not been kind to me (and after all I’ve done for it!) but I’ve always had a special affinity for electric jellyfish. They’re so pretty!

  80. How sad is it that I like him more than my son?!?!?

  81. Dig the electric jellysfish.

  83. We love Spongebob! Thanks for a chance to add this to our DVD library!

    Bum, bum, bum….

  123. I live in a house with 3 boys who adore Sponge Bob.It would surely be used with love here!

  124. I can sing the whole “Wish I was back in Texas” song and I’ve never watched it. That’s what three days in the car with a child who watched it over and over will do. Hey it kept her happy with the move.

  125. My daughter loves SBSP! She can quote whole episodes word for word! What does that say about me as a mother? Let’s not go there…I’m just doing the best I can! Just like SB everday at the Krusty Krab!

  126. Please, we have watched our other Spongebob DVD about a zillion times….

    Could be that’s why I love teaching Kindergarten…
