Spongebob is Missing!

This just in: There’s been a rash of kidnappings of the giant inflatable SpongeBob Squarepants figures that have been placed atop Burger King outlets to promote the genial sea creature’s movie. Some of the balloons have even shown up on eBay.

Personally, if I were to pilfer any figure from a fast-food joint (which I wouldn’t), it would be a Big Boy or possibly a Jollibee…but those guys aren’t cartoon characters.
