Four and one-half years ago — January, 2015 to be precise — we learned from CNN in a breaking news report:
SpongeBob SquarePants lives in a pineapple under the sea, and is, indeed, gay.
At the time, at least two Christian activist groups say the innocent cartoon characters are being exploited to promote the acceptance of homosexuality.
But the creator of SpongeBob had addressed his sexuality in 2011, saying:
“SpongeBob is somewhat asexual."
But the questions persist. The evidence: His best friend is an "ebullient pink starfish" named Patrick; his neighbor Squidward takes bubble baths, listens to classical music, and "talks like Paul Lynde"; and SpongeBob and Patrick occasionally hold hands while watching a TV show called The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. "You do the math, folks,"
All this while he lives in a pineapple! Jeez!
Speaking of pineapple…starting today – July 23 to be exact – we are featuring two new cocktails on our menu. The Koko Head Chi Chi Cocktail and the Pineapple Upside Down Shot. Both feature Alizé Pineapple.– a tropical infusion of ripe pineapple and passion fruit delicately blended with premium French vodka. It‘s a full bodied liqueur that is smooth and favorably sweet on the palate.
Give them a try! If you’re not a pineapple person, then try one of our Tuesday Brewsday $3 pints. All tap beer is $3 today, and every Tuesday at Bacchus.
See you soon!
