No, I can't stand him. Several people I know like Spongebob, but I'm suspicious of his relationship with Patrick. I probably read into it too much (that's what everybody says) I also find him annoying, sorry I can't help you prove your friend wrong, but it's her opinion, like when my cousin's boyfriend dissed my paborito show. I didn't like his opinion (okay, I hated his opinion) just like you dislike your friend's opinion, but I did the polite thing and didn't slap him like I wanted to.
i liked it... until 2000, i think. can't stand it anymore. maybe it's his laugh that got to me. but whatever it was, i now find the ipakita so fricken annoying. it's not even funny. shoulda cancelled it after it's segundo or third year.
