The Ugly Barnacle is a story told by Patrick in the season 2 episode “Something Smells”, of the popular TV show SpongeBob Squarepants. It became a source of humour in different parodies, and also a popular target of YouTube Poop videos. The most common usage of the video is to replace the word “Barnacle” with something else.
In the episode “Something Smells”, the inhabitants of the Bikini Bottom start avoiding SpongeBob. He starts thinking that they are avoiding him because he is ugly, and Patrick has to come to his aid. Patrick tells him the stroy of the “Ugly Barnacle”, in order to cheer him up, but he fails miserably, and only makes things worse.
“Once there was an Ugly Barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The End.”
The same episode also spawned another meme, called “Deuueaugh”.
