Book of Bubblestand

Questions for Contemplation

1. In this episode, SpongeBob sets up a bubblestand where you can blow bubbles for 25 cents. Squidward can not understand why anyone would spend money to blow bubbles. Why would anyone spend money to blow bubbles? Do you sometimes spend money to do things that are fun and lighthearted?

2. Although Squidward criticizes SpongeBob and Patrick for their bubble blowing, as soon as they are gone he tries it for himself. What does this say about Squidward's integrity? Are his words and actions in sync?

3. What could be more simple than blowing a stupid bubble?

4. Squidward has trouble blowing a bubble, and when he does manage one, it sinks. He finally decides to try SpongeBob's technique, the Simple Pleasures Sacrament. But he performs the sacrament without being committed to it. How is this lack of commitment evident in his final product?

5. After Squidward’s supposed success through the Simple Pleasures Sacrament, he claims all the glory for his bubble, saying SpongeBob never helped him. Have you ever tried to take all the credit for something you accomplished with the help of another? In the end, this backfired for Squidward. Did this backfire on you?
