Sleeping Squidward, also known as Squidward's Open Eyes, refers to a photoset featuring two images of the SpongeBob SquarePants character Squidward opening and closing his eyes. Online, it is frequently used as a reaction image to convey feelings of shock upon remembering an assigned task that has not been completed.


The images of Squidward's eyes originate from a scene in the episode "Home Sweet Pineapple", in which Squidward wakes up in shock after realizing SpongeBob is sleeping next to him (shown below).

On July 2nd, 2010, Facepunch forum user Liquid Sausage submitted a thread contest featuring the image.[1]


On November 15th, 2015, a post of the image of Squidward with his eyes closed accompanied by the words "When you're about to go to sleep and you remember you have homework" was posted to the subreddit /r/squidwardIRL.[4] The post has since gained over 20 upvotes in four months.
