The Hash Slinging Slasher is a ghost made up by Squidward in the Spongebob episode "Graveyard Shift" to scare SpongeBob. The story later seemingly came true as the supposed ghost came and approach the horrified SpongeBob and Squidward. Fortunately, the Hash-Slinging Slasher was not real at all, as the figure whom they mistaken as Has-Slinging Slasher was actually a nerdy fish whim.
According to Squidward, he was once a fry cook at the Krusty Krab who was more clumsier than Spongebob. One night, when he was cutting some patties, he accidentally cut-off his left hand. He immediately replace the severed hand with a rusted spatula. He was the going hom when a bus immediately crashes and hits him, killing him. As he died, he was "fired" at his funeral, in which from Squidward's tone as he said this suggested that he was fired in the disrecpectful manner. In Bahasa Indonesia version however, Squidward said that instead killed by a bus crash and then fired in the disrespectful manner, he went mad not long after he and burned alive (possibly due to spontantenus combustion).
Either way, he died, and his soul became vengeful spirit.
Signs When He Came
There are three signs that he is coming:
- First the lights will flicker on and off.
- Next the phone will ring, but nobody there.
- Finally the bus that ran him over will appear and drop him off.
