Davy Jones' locker is a locker full of smelly gym socks. It is associated with the Flying Dutchman and appears in the episodes "Born Again Krabs," "SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One," and "The Curse of Bikini Bottom." It is the underwater equivalent of the afterlife.

Description

Davy Jones' locker is a rusty gym locker that is filled with smelly socks. In the episodes, it seems to have green goo at the bottom of it. The purpose of it is to torture whoever is in it.

Folklore

The legend of "Davy Jones' locker" has existed in nautical folklore for many years, the first record being in 1726. In actual folklore, "Davy Jones' locker" is a phrase meant to refer to the bottom of the sea, where drowned sailors and wrecked ships end up. The name "Davy Jones" is likely a reference to the ghost of Jonah, the biblical figure who was swallowed by a giant fish, and was released by God after praying to be rescued. However, SpongeBob takes a different route, and uses the Monkees singer of the same name.
