This is a sea sponge, one of those things that both keeps the sea floor clean and keeps borrowing sand dollars from all the other fish. It's pretty bad with managing its income -- it used to live in a pineapple under the sea, but the bank foreclosed on it. Which, given how stupid the whole concept is, it's probably a blessing.
It sings its incredibly annoying theme song until you bang your head against a rock. Ouch! Ow! Oof!
It smacks you in the head. Don't ask why, don't ask why -- sixteen candles down the drain. Eek! Oof! Ooh!
It aggressively cleans your shoulder. And I mean aggresivelyUgh! Ugh! Argh!. Like, it takes a layer of skin off.
It smacks you with a piece of its pineapple house. Gah. Who lives in a pineapple under the sea, anyway? Ouch! Eek! Ugh!
A loan shark tries to break the sponge's knees to collect on a debt. But the sponge doesn't have knees, so the shark breaks yours instead. Now, how is that fair? Ow! Oof! Oof!
It sings its incredibly annoying theme song. You tune it out.
It asks if you've seen Mary, and if you have, please could you help her? You respond that you haven't seen her, but you'll keep an eye out.
It tries to smack you with a piece of its pineapple house, but forgot that its house got foreclosed.
It takes a break to try and mooch some food off of one of the other fish in this area of the ocean. (FUMBLE!)
