This isn't even a subtle joke, it's just straight-up visual inappropriateness. A fish's private parts are pretty clearly visual, which maybe the animators assumed nobody would be looking for, but nothing gets past the Internet.

Spongebob once had fish character named "The Tickler" who happened to be French. Perhaps unsurprisingly, a French tickler is a highly inappropriate item.

 According to a helpful Urban Dictionary definition, a French tickler is, "A sexual device in the form of a type of condom containing a massaging accessory at the tip. Used for sexual pleasure. Used by those who play guitar and suck toes, and do both incredibly."

Squidward says that he hopes Mr. Krabs's "whole wiener thing” will “blow right up in his face." It doesn’t take a particularly dirty mind to interpret this inappropriately, just one that’s been exposed to the adult world.

The Joke About “Insertion”
Ranker Video
Video: YouTube
Spongebob is instructed to be "assertive," to which he responds by sticking his finger in and out of a pocket. The sponge misunderstands to therm, understanding "assert" only as "insert," leading to a perfectly juvenile visual intercourse gag that only really registers for viewers over, say, 11 years old.
