Fried oyster skins are a food item mentioned in the episode "Squidville."
They are not ever physically seen. However, they are known to cause very bad breath.
Role in episode
Patrick breathes into the speaker at Tentacle Acres gate, and the foul stench caused by the fried oyster skins knocks out the two guards, which allows SpongeBob and Patrick to have access to Tentacle Acres.
- This food item is the underwater version of "fried onion skins," since they both cause bad breath and they both seem to be marginally edible food.
- This food item could have also been based on "fried pork rinds."
- Similar to SpongeBob's sundae from "Something Smells," it is known to give a character extremely rancid-scented breath.
- Because Patrick doesn't have a nose, he wouldn't be able to know about the smell, unless someone told him.
