"Once, there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly that everyone died. The End."
The opening and ending lines

"The Ugly Barnacle" is a short story Within the Show of SpongeBob SquarePants. During the episode, one Patrick Star improvised "The Ugly Barnacle" in an attempt to cheer up his friend, a Mr. SpongeBob SquarePants, who was suffering from a case of the ugly at the time. Unfortunately and predictably, the story didn't help at all.
