UPDATE: The missus found another Masonic SpongeBob episode here.

UPDATE: From the Wiki:
The series is set in the Pacific Ocean, in the fictional city of Bikini Bottom and on the surrounding lagoon floor. The pilot episode first aired in the United States on Nickelodeon after the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on May 1, 1999. The "official" series premiere followed on July 17, 1999, with the second episode, "Bubblestand/Ripped Pants."
From the wiki on 17: "Seventeen is the 7th prime number. The next prime is nineteen, with which it forms a twin prime. 17 is the sum of the first four primes."

UPDATE II: Speaking of Wiki, this was on the front page today:

NOTE: The Memestream post will be back up later. I didn't mean to post it after the wild day we had.

UPDATE: Diederick reminds us of the SpongeBob movie, Atlantis Squarepantis, which features none other than David Bowie as Lord Royal Highness. In this clip, Squidward initiates SpongeBob and Patrick into the mysteries of Atlantis in what looks like a Masonic lodge.

UPDATE: Here's dialogue from the "Good Neighbors" episode:

Spongebob & Patrick: By the all seeing eye, ye are worthy. We are not.
Squidward: What are you two idiots doing?
Patrick: Secret ritual.
Spongebob: To inaugurate you as president.
Squidward: Me? President of Bikini Bottom? I knew the people would come to their senses.
Patrick: No, silly. Not the president of Bikini Bottom. Even better.
Squidward: Better?
Spongebob: You're the president of 'The Secret Royal Order of the Good Neighbor Lodge'.
