Can you believe it? As reported by Yahoo News, “A blow-up figure of SpongeBob SquarePants was swiped from a Minnesota Burger King.” And the kidnapper’s want a ransom. “The ransom note was signed by SpongeBob’s nemesis, Plankton. A postscript reads: “Patrick is next,” referring to the Bermuda shorts-wearing starfish that serves as SpongeBob’s sidekick.”
Now that’s quite a publicity stunt. Seems that the SpongeBob blow up’s have disappeared off the roof’s of 5 or 6 other Burger King’s across the country. At first glance, this is rather amusing, that someone wanted to impress a kid with having their very own SpongeBob Square pants blowup doll. And then, on second glance, by all of our snickering, and amusement, we’ve just made it alright to steal. What’s next, we decide its okay to kill people? Oh yeah, that already happened with O.J.
