BIKINI BOTTOM – Same sex marriage passed another milestone yesterday when long time couple Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star became the first animated same sex couple to marry.
In a ceremony presided over by Rev. Squidworth, the couple exchanged their vows ‘to be Gooby Goobers, to go Jelly Fish hunting at the drop of a hat and some other third thing’.
The reception was held at the Krusty Krab where best Squirrel Sandy gave a moving speech and guests were treated to an especially expensive celebration menu. Animation expert and author of the groundbreaking ‘Liking Cartoons is a Serious Thing: Adventures in American Post-Realist Animation’, Chuckles McBucket said:
Why this should come as any kind of surprise is the only surprise. Cartoons have been pushing the boundary of sexual identity ever since Bugs Bunny dressed up in drag and duped Yosemite Sam into marrying him. I can only say how happy I am that now many other cartoon characters will break through the barriers and leave a silhouette hole of themselves behind.
The LGBT community applauded the couple and wished them well on their future, though some church groups have called for people to watch Family Guy instead.
