The splinter is a small piece of wood that SpongeBob accidentally gets stuck in his thumb after he tries to pull out his spatula from the ceiling and falls in the episode of the same name.


After a failed attempt to grab his spatula from the Krusty Krab ceiling causes him to fall on the ground and pressure a piece of wood from the restaurant's flooring into his thumb, the splinter immediately gives SpongeBob pain and it is hard for him to get it out. He tries removing it but fails, so he contacts Patrick for help, though he, being his dumb self, puts trash from a dumpster onto it, making it swollen and turn purple with green pus, thus worsening his condition. Squidward tells Mr. Krabs about the splinter, as he felt it would send SpongeBob back home. At the end of the episode, Krabs pulls it out, and it explodes into confetti and then into green pus at his dismay.
