Now Squidward has to sit next to SpongeBob in class all day long – and SpongeBob couldn't be happier! When Mr. Krabs notices that the citizens of Bikini Bottom love buying tabloid newspapers, he decides to begin another business venture – his own tabloid! He recruits SpongeBob as his writer, but SpongeBob doesn’t feel comfortable making up stories about other people because that would make him a liar.

SpongeBob discovers that making up stories about the people in Bikini Bottom is a lot of fun – but the people he's writing about don’t think so.
