"What am i patrick?" A voice rang out on tv "uhhh stupid?" Patrick guessed "no! Im texas!" Spongebob laughed "whas the difference?" The tv shut off spongebob nd patrick stood still realizing something was wrong with the cartoons "spongebob i'm scared" patrick wailed a glow of purple burst in front of then a blocky figure with white eyes and a demonic voice charged at them spongebob kicked him but he had an orb glowig from his hand it was odd to see something so unearthly just then spongebob realized it was herobrine! That crazy thing in minecraft that had so many rumors he got up he stuck his face in herobrines and began to say something until he dissapeared spongebob still wondered what was going on? Squidward walked out of his house a peoce of paper floated in front of spongebob he screamed in horror "HEROBRINE IS GOING TO SHUT DOWN ALL CARTOONS!?!" spongebob fainted to be continued!
