He doesn't know what is going on because he was sunbathing. Then the two start worrying and they notice Kelp statements are everywhere so they both try to steal a Kelp Shake and discover what it is made of. They go to a Kelp shop and they form a queue. Mr. Krabs pretends to cough and throws Plankton to the kitchen but he crashes on a door. That night they both try to enter but an alarm wakes up a guard worm who attacks them. The next day the both of them buy a Kelp Shake and go to the Chum Bucket to analyse what is made of. Karen starts analysing, but Plankton gets impatient and interrupts the progress of the analyser. That midday SpongeBob appears covered by light green kelp. Then all Kelp restaurants are closed because of being unhealthy. 2 Decontaminants revealed that it will take decades to get rid of the unhealthy toxic waste and they're sorry for whoever drank this. Then Mr. Krabs and Plankton gets light green hairy kelp all over their bodies. So Mr. Krabs gives Plankton a Krabby Patty and then actually chases him out of boredom.
