Police are looking for a a blow-up figure of SpongeBob SquarePants swiped from a Minnesota Burger King. They've found a ransom note which starts off: "We have SpongeBob." It then demands, "Give us ten Crabby Patties, fries and milkshakes."

One was also stolen in Southern Maine last week. They actually put out a "missing persons" bulletin on some of the police radio channels. Hilarious listening to them describe a 6 foot tall yellow guy weighing 10 pounds.

Sham "6' 4" and lots more than 10 pounds!!" rock

The thing I find weird about it is that, just the other day as I was passing the local Burger King, a thought popped into my head about how it would be possible to steal the giant SpongeBob on top of it. It was just a passing thought but I find it odd that I would think that before I heard of the actual case of one being stolen.
If you just look at the thing, though, it somehow begs to be vandalised somehow, and apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so..

J. Thaddeus, I see you're from Oregon, where did you see that spongebob? I know a little girl that would help me swipe one in a heartbeat! Kidding, but what a prize for a fan.
