Now if watch the show you know Squidward would rather SpongeBob fall off the face of the earth, Squidward is highly annoyed by SpongeBob and his buddy Patrick. He treats poor SpongeBob and Patrick like crap, he is very clear that he can’t stand those two and belittles them every chance he can get, Squidward is a big grumpy bully.
How do SpongeBob and Patrick handle this Bully? Ha! Now that’s the great part. They handle him with humor and wit…yeah I said it…Wit. It’s the best way to shut down a bully, bullying in school would be history, like a fart in a strong breeze, if kids these days would handle it more like these two. Seriously.
Think about it…some brat walks up to your kid in the hall and says something like…
“Hey Billy, you’re as dumb as a doorknob?”
And Billy says "Remember, licking doorknobs is illegal on other planets!" ~ SpongeBob
Don’t you agree that would stop that kid in his tracks…what can you say back to that?
Some examples of how SpongeBob and Patrick use their wit and humor to block verbal attracts.
Squidward: How dumb can you be Patrick?
Patrick: It varies.
Squidward: SpongeBob where you dropped on your head as a baby?
SpongeBob: How did you know!!
Sandy: Don't you have to be stupid somewhere else?
Patrick: Not until four.
I understand your kids are not going to have a writer to give them some good come backs, but SpongeBob can teach you kids how to use humor. See a bully can't make fun of you if you can make fun of yourself better. Its worked for my kids over the years, and so has SpongeBob.
Watching SpongeBob has benefited my kid in many ways, just the other day my uncle thought he would give my 12 year old some crap.
Uncle: Wow Avery your smelling a little ripe, ever heard of deodorant?
Avery: That’s my Manly pit smell *lifts arms and sniffs pits*, Why cover this up with deodorant? I like my man smell, don’t you.
Now that I think about it maybe that’s not the best example of a benefit.
Dumb people are always blissfully unaware of how dumb they really are...
