Squidward, the only person who is really seen attempting music of any kind in Bikini Bottom, was rejected from the marching band that SpongeBob started. Here he is after his disastrous attempt, pinned to a wall, feeling miserable.

In an effort to get away from SpongeBob and Patrick's craziness, Squidward moved into a neighborhood of people just like him: sarcastic, arts-minded misanthropes. Turns out, he couldn't stand those people either, so it looks like he's doomed to never be happy no matter where he lives.

Trying to stay fit and active is an important part of Squidward's life. But in one episode, he goes for a bike ride, accidentally gets his tentacles wrapped up in the pedals (ouch) and rides his bike off a cliff, only to hit every bump on the way down. When he hits the bottom, his body explodes (double ouch).

Can anyone explain why Squidward always seems to explode when he hits the ground? Is his body made of dynamite? Because in yet another episode, he falls off a cliff and blows to pieces the moment he reaches the bottom. That's some rotten luck.
