SpongeBob traveling the world in drag is now a meme and, honestly, it's iconic...
SpongeBob memes are going viral again and this time the internet has turned SpongeBob into an international drag queen.
It's no secret that SpongeBob SquarePants has inspired some of the greatest memes of all time. Not a day goes by without the beloved cartoon being at the centre of some sort of hilarious viral content. From the SpongeBob out of breath meme to the evil Patrick meme, SpongeBob never ceases to entertain us. However, the internet has just created a new SpongeBob meme (involving lipstick, a purse and a dress) and we think that it may be the best SpongeBob meme yet.
Check out the funniest international SpongeBob memes below.
The meme all started with popular Twitter users @DIXIENORMOUS and @fadisborn. On June 1st, @DIXIENORMOUS posted a photo of SpongeBob edited to look like a stereotypical, french woman. They then transformed the image into a video with music and @fadisborn began editing the video to cater to multiple, different, national stereotypes. Naturally, it wasn't long before the internet caught on and a meme was born.
The tweets which started it all.

Everyone from Beyoncé to Spider-Man has been referenced and the memes keep on coming. With that in mind, we've scoured the internet and gathered the 31 funniest international SpongeBob memes all in one place.
