Race for Bikini Bottom President

Chapter 1: Krabs' Choice for President

The Krusty Krab restaurant was quite a wreck, and having quite a bad month to date. Inside the restaurant, there were no customers at all, and poor Squidward was sitting at his cashier station being quite bored literally to death, while Spongebob was his usual hyper self. Still trying to wait for a customer to come through those two doors.

"Hey Squidward, do you think a customer's going to come here now?" asked Spongebob as if it seemed like he was asking the same question, over and over again to poor Squidward.

"If I say yes, would you please go away?" asked Squidward, "Because you have been saying it all day, and we still haven't had a customer!"

"Hey, pipe down there!" cried Mr. Krabs whom barged in, "I was busy counting me money, when you screamed off my ear drums!"

"Well pardon me sir, but we haven't had a customer all month, and I'm just going to quit this job here and look for a new one" replied Squidward.

But before Squidward could literally take off his Krusty Krab hat and throw it on the ground, the invisible boat mobile driven by Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy parked right outside to which excited Spongebob.

"Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!" cried Spongebob, "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are here at the Krusty Krab, I can't hardly believe it!"

"Of course they're here, they always come here" replied Squidward.

"So what can I do for our best customers?" asked Mr. Krabs to Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy who entered the empty restaurant

"This is a restaurant?" asked Mermaid Man in his usual clueless attitude, "I thought it was a gas station for our invisible boat mobile."

"No, this is the Krusty Krab, not a gas station" replied Barnacle Boy.

"Well, I guess we can still take your case here in getting that gas and some Krabby Patties to go" replied Mr. Krabs.

"Mr. Krabs, we don't sell gas here" whispered Squidward.

"Oh, I hope you don't mind if I take in some gas from your boat, if you don't mind" said Mr. Krabs as he had a bucket with him along with a hose for the gas to flow through.

Mr. Krabs quickly exited the building to head toward Squidward's poor boat, meanwhile Spognebob came right up to his two great heroes of all time.

"Can I get your orders?" asked Spongebob.

"Yeah, just give us the usual" replied Barnacle Boy, "I'll pay since Mermaid Man sometimes forgets his wallet."

"In the mean time, you two can watch television" added Spongebob as he used the remote control to turn it on for his heroes.

The scene then changes to the television screen, where it seems like the current President of Bikini Bottom was stepping down from office where King Neptune was going to allow an election to occur.

"As you may have just heard if you just tuned in folks" said the fish reporter on television, "the current President of Bikini Bottom is stepping down due to corruption allegations. King Neptune had this to say about having new elections here in Bikini Bottom."

The scene on the television, then switches to King Neptune himself where the cameras then focused on.

"Ah yes, unfortunately the current President of Bikini Bottom who just stepped down was due to allege corruption charges" replied King Neptune to reporters, "as King of these seas, I declare a new election shall be hold to see who'll become the next President of Bikini Bottom. That is the law of the land, and my final word."

While that was going on television, Mr. Krabs came back into the scene. Mr. Krabs had managed to take quite a bit of Squidward's gas from his boat, and place it in a bucket.

"Here's your gas" said Mr. Krabs as he handed the bucket to Barnacle Boy to which he then handed him the hose, "you may need this to place the gas, into your boat mobile."

"Thanks for that" said Barnacle Boy as he handed Mr. Krabs twenty bucks.

"Twenty bucks, you expect to pay me this amount of lousy cash?" asked Mr. Krabs to Barnacle Boy.

"Well even with gas prices rising, it's rather cheap for us heroes to afford" replied Barnacle Boy.

"Here are your orders" said Spongebob who came into the scene giving the two heroes their burgers, which were all in mashed potato form so that they can digest properly.

"Thanks kid" said Mermaid Man as he took his burger.

As the two began to chow down, Mr. Krabs then began to read the news clips on the television screen of there being an election for Bikini Bottom President. He then hatched up an idea in his head, to which Mermaid Man had turned into a man featured on a hundred dollar bill, and the other Barnacle Boy as the man on the fifty dollar bill.

"Boys" said Mr. Krabs who interrupted the two from eating their meals, "how would you two like getting back to be famous again?"

"And what do you have in mind about that?" asked Barnacle Boy as he continued to eat his burger.

"How about if one of you decides to run for President of Bikini Bottom, you'll need some help in campaigning" replied Mr. Krabs.

"Hmm, let me think about this, me, President of Bikini Bottom" thought Mermaid Man as he continued to eat his burger, "I'll do it."

"Yeeppieee!" cried Spongebob who overheard their conversation, "I can't believe it, Mermaid Man as Mr. President of Bikini Bottom!"

"What?!" cried Squidward, "You're excited that some old guys are going to be in the race to replace the allege corrupt former President?!"

"Yeah sure, come on join the bandwagon Squidward" replied Mr. Krabs.

"I don't know about you, but I'm out of here for today" said Squidward as he marched right outside.

Squidward's commotion outside caught the attention of Plankton who was next door in the Cum Bucket. Through some binoculars, Plankton spotted Squidward who was quite upset of Mr. Krabs' decision to run Mermaid Man for President.

"Stupid Mr. Krabs, I can't believe he's having some fools run for office" grumbled Squidward.

This of course excited Plankton as he then raced back to the files of some of his future plans, which Karen helped him take out.

"I just can't believe that corrupt crook finally left office" said Plankton as he then laid the plan on the floor, "knowing that Mr. Krabs would be too greedy on his own to select his own puppet. I have decided to happily enter the race. But who would I choose to run against whoever Mr. Krabs selected?"
