Role in seriesEdit

"Graveyard Shift"Edit

Squidward creates the character of the "hash-slinging slasher" in order to scare SpongeBob as a form of entertainment during their 24-hour night shift.

According to Squidward's story, the hash-slinging slasher was a former fry cook who worked at the Krusty Krab before SpongeBob and was more clumsier than him. One night, the slasher accidentally severed one of his hands by mistake while cutting Krabby Patty meat. He replaced his hand with a rusty spatula. 

Later, when he was going home, he was fatally run over by a bus and "fired" at his funeral. Out of vengeance, his ghost returns to the restaurant every Tuesday night via the bus that killed him and "gets" unsuspecting victims. However, his presence is announced by flickering lights, a phone call with nobody on the sending line, and the arrival of the bus that killed him, stopping just outside the Krusty Krab.

Squidward later confesses that he fabricated the story in response to SpongeBob's almost-frenetic-and-melodramatic screams of terror. Later that night, however, it seemed that the events of his story were coming true. Eventually, it is revealed that the hash-slinging slasher, or who they thought was him, actually came to apply for a job at the Krusty Krab. He was also revealed to be the cause of the latter two "signs" signalling the hash-slinging slasher's arrival, with Nosferatu switching the lights on and off.
