      Truly a lost basic element to humanity. Now, everyone seeks to find each and every flaw in another person, no matter how great they executed what they were aiming to execute. You seeing this says a lot about you. I want to know you as a person because it's very rare these days. Kudos!

    Tom Kenny virtually is Spongebob. I don’t think I’ve heard a single impression that was on par with Kenny’s performance, although there have been a few fairly accurate ones, too. But nobody has the exact same nasal timbre as his performance. If Tom Kenny left the show or died tomorrow, there would absolutely be no more Spongebob.
