Misspelling "SpongeBob" In The GIF Tab refers to a humorous internet axiom that states that no matter how badly one misspells "SpongeBob" in the GIF tab on Twitter, GIFs from the television show SpongeBob SquarePants will appear. After the oddity was pointed out by a Twitter user in early February of 2023, many Twitter users showcased their attempts at butchering the spelling of "SpongeBob," only to be delivered SpongeBob GIFs.


On February 3rd, 2023, Twitter user @whipaf[1] remarked, "u can spell spongebob as wrong as u want in the Gif tab n he still gon show up," gaining over 5,500 retweets, 7,400 quote-tweets, and 76,000 likes in four days (shown below, top). To prove their point, the user showed how SpongeBob GIFs appeared when they typed "sheogebuob" into Twitter's GIF tab (shown below, bottom).

The tweet quickly inspired people to see how badly they could misspell "SpongeBob" and still be served SpongeBob GIFs by Twitter. Absurd examples include a tweet from @2popeyebiscuit,[2] who proved the axiom true by typing "aoongbov" into the Twitter GIF tab and receiving SpongeBob GIFs, receiving over 180 retweets and 6,600 likes (shown below, left). User @bluithink[3] proved it by searching "dponbebib," gaining over 130 retweets and 7,400 likes (shown below, right).

Some users took the axiom as a challenge and worked to find spellings of "SpongeBob" so outlandish that SpongeBob wouldn't appear. User @LegoshiPecs[4] celebrated "defeating" the challenge with the term "spingledorp" (shown below, left). User @vhyrrusss[5] noted that the trick didn't work when removing all the vowels from "SpongeBob" (shown below, right).
