Squidward is exactely the type of guy evola warned us about, he doesn't live live like a kid and enjoy all its aspect, he only revel in things he deem able to do and lack any social awarness for simple joy toward his life. He only ever focus inward without ever reaching out to other selflessly, like you said in bandgeeks he isn't ashamed to take credit from spongebob miraculous work.
He id very jewish in that aspect and make him quite despicable. That being said he is very important for the cartoon because all his flaw reflect so well in comparaidon to the due spongebob and patrick.
Talking about patrick i hate what they did with him in the latter season. They made him a literal retard, in the first seasons he was merely pretrending and proved numerous time to understang pretty complex joke and even keep going at it ad nauseam, he swim in absurdity and that's what i like.
Thanks for your thread anons thatd mean a lot for me to know the board have some interest to some anon.
