American Horror Story Has Sparked A Hilarious New SpongeBob Meme

These are super dead-on

American Horror Story and SpongeBob SquarePants are on opposite ends of the TV spectrum, audience-wise, yet Tumblr has proven that they perfectly mash up — and it's a little unnerving. Fans have been memeing AHS using SpongeBob pics since Day 1, but a new trend developed on Reddit recently with the unveiling of Season 6's Roanoke.

Fans take an actor who's been on the show for several seasons — sorry, Lady Gaga — and choose a SpongeBob pic to illustrate each character on the anthology series, joking how their secret identity has been "confirmed." It's unclear exactly who started this trend, but we thank the internet (especially Reddit users theahsfan, funky-al, Jesus_Christa, and fistyday) for always keeping us laughing.

  1. The Murder House one is GOLD. Pure, unadulterated gold.

  2. The "Maaattt" part is a nice (and essential) touch. Seriously, how hasn't fake Shelby lost her voice yet from all her exaggerated hollering?

  3. You'd think the Coven pic would be hard, but then you remember that one episode of SpongeBob depicted a detached tongue, and all is set right.

  4. I'm honestly terrified to see what more ~fiery~ shenanigans the Butcher will get into on Roanoke.

  5. And since I don’t wanna leave Lady Gaga out, here’s my submission.

    Gaga and Cuba Gooding Jr. having sex in the woods will forever be engraved in my brain.
