Earlier this year, Twitter user @DIXIENORMOUS tweeted their new profile picture as SpongeBob wearing a dress and beret and holding a baguette in front of the Eiffel Tower. The day after it was posted, users began replicating the pic and putting Spongey in an assortment of different international locations. Why? WHY THE HELL NOT!

The Sleeping Squidward meme comes from a scene in the episode 'Home Sweet Pineapple' in which Squidward wakes up in shock after realising SpongeBob is sleeping next to him. It's another #relatable meme used to convey the shock and realisation of forgetting to get something done.
Happy birthday SpongeBob! May you live on forever in our mems, and our memes.
