It’s been a while, but now that Game of Thrones has ended, SpongeBob SquarePants has returned to Twitter to reclaim his place as king of all memes.

The newest SpongeBob meme shows Mr. SquarePants traveling the globe and arriving at exotic destinations dressed in traditional (or more accurately cliche) versions the local garb. To add to the effect some people add stereotypical music from each culture, giving the whole thing a “clueless American tourist” vibe.

The meme seems to have started on May 31 when Twitter user @DlXlENORMOUS posted an image of a French SpongeBob in front of the Eiffel Tower along with the caption “#NewProfilePic”

Soon other people began creating their own versions.

A lot of people used the opportunity to mock cultural appropriation.

But don’t worry. Game of Thrones memes aren’t dead just yet. One of the funniest versions of the meme shows Ayra Stark discovering what’s “west of Westeros”.

And, of course, it wasn’t long before things started getting weird.

Turns out it’s a SpongeBob world after all.
