171b - InSPONGEiac
It is a very fine day in Bikini Bottom, and down at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob adds one percent too much mustard to the Krabby Patties. Mr. Krabs isn't happy with this as this gross excess would lead him to bankruptcy within the next four hundred years, however, he assumes SpongeBob is an insomniac (a disorder where a person has sleeping difficulties). So Mr. Krabs sends SpongeBob home to get more shut-eye.
SpongeBob has a hard time sleeping, so he goes to Patrick's house. Patrick tries to help SpongeBob asleep by reading a bedtime story. This doesn't work, since it is a "wake-up story" (The Land of Perpetual Excitement). Then Patrick sings SpongeBob his "lullaby," but it is really a wake-up song, since it has the lyrics, "Get up, be active! Get up, be active!" Then Patrick gives SpongeBob coffee, which makes SpongeBob even more awake.
SpongeBob starts running around, and starts hallucinating things, such as a talking glass of milk, a bunch of Squidwards, etc. Then he hallucinates Patrick eating him, thinking he's a spongecake. Inside Patrick, SpongeBob hallucinates a sunrise. He begs it to let him sleep for just five minutes, before he hallucinates Sir Cecil the sleep wizard. Sir Cecil puts sleepy dust (which is really litter from Gary's litter box) on SpongeBob, then he falls asleep. When SpongeBob wakes up in Gary's litter box, he snaps back to reality.
Realizing he's late for work, a very tired SpongeBob goes to Krusty Krab to sleep in a barrel of mustard. Mr. Krabs takes SpongeBob out of the barrel of ruined mustard, and wonders why SpongeBob couldn't sleep. The sponge confesses that his "insomnia" got the best of him. Then he starts crying tears made of mustard. He cries the perfect amount that is needed to be on the patties. Squidward is happy and claims that it's the best day of work ever, because he got to see SpongeBob being forced to cry mustard.
