Twitter is a funny place. It’s the President of the United States’ primary mode of communication, but more importantly, it’s a virtual playground where real-life humans and cartoon characters can interact.
On Sunday, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and SpongeBob SquarePants had a conversation and people were baffled and delighted in equal parts.
SpongeBob then returned with a joke, implementing The Rock’s catchphrase from his wrestling days (“Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?”). It turns out SpongeBob is cooking crabby patties – we should have guessed.
We earned one or two cool names ourselves back in boating school 😂.
P.S. Do you smell what the Bob is cooking? (It’s Krabby Patties btw)
Many Twitter users spotted this incredibly bizarre exchange, and had plenty to say about it. If nothing else, it provided some distraction from the barrage of bad news that tends to clog up our Twitter feeds – so we’re here for it.
