So I'm watching an episode of Spongebob right now called "Spongebob Lawyerpants". Plankton slipped on some water in the Krusty Krab and is bringing a lawsuit against Mr. Krabs who is being represented by Spongebob. Mr Krabs just admitted under oath that he does not own a wet floor sign. "I had to make some tough business decisions... and the wet floor sign seemed superflous".

Why is Mr. Krab's daughter a whale?

Sweet! Nice track workout. Are you trying to make sense out of spongebob?

Too wide open for me to comment, especially on a "family friendly" forum. LOL..

Dude - I'm thinking we need to grab a couple more guys and run a 4X200 or 4X400 in Albuquerque!! Nice work. And ya gotta love the word superfluous showing up in a cartoon - I knew I loved Spongebob for some reason.
