The show opens with a painting of Squidward next to a speech bubble that features the name of the show (shown below).

Spread

Over the next few years, the meme continued to grow as people replaced the words in the speech bubble. For example, on September 20th, 2017, iFunny [3] user Doonge replaced the text with "if you watch anime your opinion doesn't count" (shown below, left).

The post, which features the text "Fun facts with squidward: An inheritance is just your relatives dropping their look when they die," received more than 66,000 points (92% upvoted) and 275 comments in less than two weeks (shown below, center).

That day, Redditor[5] owfuckyeet shared a variation with the caption "If ass isn't meant to be ate, why is it between 2 buns." The post received more than 21,000 points (94% upvoted) and 115 comments in less than two weeks (shown below, right).
