Torture by Sponge

Here are two of my children standing with my arch nemesis of the summer.

My kids earn some TV time when they get their work done and their show of choice most often is unfortunately “Spongebob Squarepants.”

I have actually watched a couple of episodes upon my children’s insistence, and I admit it can be clever and funny at times, but the characters’ voices are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

It’s like a writer and a producer were watching the movie Dumb and Dumber and heard “the most annoying sound in the world” and said, “Hey, let’s make a TV show out of that noise.”

The nautical nonsense cast screeches in fast monotone pitches that sit on my very last nerve as the show plays like a torturous soundtrack in the background of my house.

Like a recent study proved, I’m pretty sure we’re getting dumb and dumber over here at our house this summer.
