As I was working on our blog’s new header layout, my wife came into the room and saw Sponge Bob on the screen. Quick came the inevitable question,
“What an earth is Sponge Bob doing there?”
– “Uh… he’s our blog’s mascot.”
“Why him?”, she asked.
-“Well, uh, er… we took a vote. Yes, Sponge Bob was democratically elected by some Cultura teachers as the ideal representative of hard work, joy and fun inherent to English Language Teaching. . .”
Of course she didn’t buy it:
– “Really!? How many teachers took part in this so-called election? And WHO were they?”
She had my back up against the wall. I had to come clean:
“Madam, for your information, Mr. Sponge Bob was UNANIMOUSLY elected by BOTH voters, Dyêgo Simpson and Fernando Flanders. Also, after the counting of votes, we both agreed that Sir Dave Mac Dilbert, another important member of the electoral body, would have entirely agreed with the result!”
She left the room.
So, now you know how Sponge Bob ended up on our blog header.
