24 Of The Funniest Caveman Spongebob Memes On The Internet

A few weeks ago, I was innocently scrolling through Tumblr at  one AM when I came across an image of Spongebob Squarepants with a weird mouth, looking combative and angry. I made a face and kept scrolling, but I guess I should have known in that moment that Caveman Spongebob would become the next *big* meme. The image of Spongebob as a caveman (AKA SpongeGar) is just weird enough to be funny, but also strangely relatable enough to be applied to situations we’ve all found ourselves in. And so, in case you haven’t already noticed, Caveman Spongebob has spent the last week taking over Twitter, Tumblr, and even Instagram.

What is Caveman Spongebob? Know Your Meme (which I learned about from our resident meme expert Sara Hendricks) has a long and oddly complicated history of the meme – it’s like, I never knew there was so much to know about memes – which is apparently also known as SpongeGar. SpongeGar appeared on Spongebob Squarepants years ago and is not new at all, but it’s new to the Internet meme culture, which is really all that matters.

Caveman Spongebob is basically an image of Spongebob looking alarmed, angry, and very defensive. It’s been used to describe people who are caught in vulnerable situations where they need to be on guard, or people who are in a frantic rush for something, or people who just realized something horrible, or… well, I mean, I could keep describing it, or I could just show you. I choose to show you. Here are 24 of the funniest Caveman Spongebob memes on the Internet:
