Good morning everyone out there in Half-Baked land, and welcome to the latest in the world of cartoon conspiracy theories. That's right, Half-Baked Conspiracies is back. For those that don't know, this is where we look into some of your favorite cartoons theories, and we here at the HBCL break it down, and see if it is true or not. This one takes us down to Bikini Bottom.
Were SpongeBob and his friends created from nuclear fallout? Here is the theory.
We all know Bikini Bottom as the home of Spongebob and the gang, but did you know that it lays beneath a nuclear testing site? The theory goes Bikini Bottom is on the ocean floor underneath the real Bikini Atoll. This was a nuclear testing site used by the US government in the 1940s and 50's. After over 20 bomb test, the area became uninhabitable for humans, and the residents were relocated. Unfortunately, the animals in the area were affected by all the radiation and were mutated into the creatures we know on Spongebob SquarePants. Now that we know what the theory is, let's see what the HBCL staff thinks.
Let's, for a moment-- consider what radiation actually is, shall we?
When an unstable isotope of an element...well..exists.. it sheds particles; bits of itself off in all directions, at super charged levels. Doing so, it decays into other elements until it finds itself a nice little stable place to rest.
Now, what if these super charged particles; travelling damn near the speed of light, come smashing into your cellular structure-- or even our DNA?! ...Melt down.
With that aside, let's consider the probability that such bizarre mutations could arise from nuclear fallout.... Blah blah blah.
Probably not realistically-- but it's a cartoon after-all. Sooooo as a basis for the bizarre happenings at the bottom of this briny beachhead?
I'll buy it!
This isn't one of my favorite theories, but it is a fun one to entertain. Looking at it overall, the show was created by a very imaginative marine biologist which shockingly took the world by storm. To this day I still love to binge watch Spongebob Squarepants.
Who knows maybe the creator imagined himself as Sandy Cheeks exploring Bikini Atoll, but fell apon a civilization known as Bikini Bottom. Created a dome to survive in and study the creatures, befriending all of them and making it a permanent home.
I really do believe that this was a very well thought out show, created by intelligent humor. Using what he loved most to make entertainment for children and adults. Still the theory can make you think...
Oh yeah, I think that this theory is definitely true! SpongeBob is not one of my favorite cartoons out there, due to the fact that I find him and Patrick annoying. Guess I relate to Squidward. Anyway, look at all the things we know radiation can do to living creatures. So, why can't it create an upbeat version of Fallout? Just so everyone knows, I rather watch this show over playing Fallout 76.
