Don't look at the tabs, you will turn into stone.

Each of the main characters in Spongebob
Squarepants was inspired by one ofthe
seven deadly sins.
This surprising revelation was made in the
audio commentary included with the episode
Plankton!" on the DVD boxset of the show' s
first season. The disc does not establish
which characters match up with each sin, but
as an avid Spongebob fan, I believe the com-
paragons are fairly straightforward:
l. Greed (Mr. Krabs) - this is by far the most
obvious comparison that can be made. The
avarice of Eugene Krabs is made painfully
clear throughout the series. He is constantly
thinking of ways to turn a profit, even if it in-
valves taking advantage of his friends or put-
ting them in harmful situations! In one epi-
sode, he sings a song called "Ifl Could Talk to
Money"... and there' s even a wiki page divot-
ed to compiling all of his greedy plans!
2. Envy (Plankton) - another no brainer. With
all of Krabs' wealth and good fortune, there
has been an equal amount of hard luck and
failure for his , Sheldon Plankton.
Plankton owns a struggling restaurant called
The Chum Bucket" and is consumed with the
desire to achieve the success of his adversary.
His life' s goal is to steal the Krabby Patty for-
mula from his Krabs and drive his primary
competitor out of business.
3. Sloth (Patrick) - the guy lives under a rock
for crying out loud! If that isn' t enough to
convince you, in the episode "Big Pink Loser"
Patrick is given an award for 'doing absolute-
nothing longer than anyone else'. He then
proceeds go back under his rock to protect
his title.
4. Pride (Sandy) - the fact that Sandy Cheeks
is from Texas alone should almost suffice for
this one. She is a squirrel that is very proud of
her heritage, so much so that in one episode
she nearly moved back home! Sandy also
takes a great deal of satisfaction in being the
only land critter living down in Bikini Bottom
among all the fishy folk. Though generally a
individual, Sandy is quick to
spout off about the greatness ofthe Lone
Star state or to show off her athleticism in a
karate match or a weightlifting contest.
5. Wrath (Squidward) - Squidward Tentacles
has no qualms about expressing his negative
outlook on life, whether it be by describing
how much he hates assjob at the Krusty Krab
or through outward disdain for his two ob-
noxious neighbors. He is portrayed as a gen-
eral failure who refuses to acknowledge his
own personal flaws. This constant
manifests itself in a sarcastic sense of humor
and resentment toward the society that
doesn' t 'appreciate' his creativity and
clarinet... erm..." skiils".
6. Gluttony (Gary) - now this one' s a bit tricky-
er. Those who have watched a great deal of
the series will have noticed a number injokes
about Spongebob having to remember to
feed his pet snail. To be honest, Gary doesn' t
do a whole lot besides eating and meowing,
and the meowing is often due to the fact that
he is hungry. Once when Spongebob hadn' t
fed his pet, Gary is shown eating parts of their
couch! In another episode, Gary runs away
from home because Spongebob forgot to
feed him for a while. Another time when
Spongebob had amnesia, Gary ate a year' s
supply food and became morbidly
obese! This proves beyond a doubt that
when left to his own devices, Gary would
rather do nothing but eat.
7. Lust (Spongebob) - our final analogy is
probably the least apparent because we typi-
cally think of' lust' in a sexual sense. However,
the alternative definition for lust is simply "a
passionate desire for something". In this
sense ofthe word, it cannot be denied that
our absorbent yellow friend is an extremely
lustful creature. Spongebob has a lust for life
that is incomparable to most other cartoon
characters - he yearns for the affections of
both friend and foe alike, is eager to please,
and will often stop at nothing to complete a
