That's right, as many of us know from driving past Burger King establishments around the US there are giant SpongeBob SquarePants inflatables on the roofs. Well, it appears that people are stealing them and holding them ransom. The reward for giving a useful tip so one of these may be returned: Free Whoppers for a year!

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Burger King really wants its SpongeBob inflatables back, and the burger chain is even willing to offer a one-year's supply of free Whoppers, salads or any other item on its menu as a reward for information leading to their safe return.

Miami-based Burger King has been inflicted with a spate of "Spongenappings" that began Nov. 11 in which vandals made off with several gigantic blow-up SpongeBob Squarepants figures that were perched on rooftops of different restaurants across the country.

"As to the motives behind these apparent 'Spongenappings,' we can only speculate. We did receive one ransom note related to an inflatable SpongeBob disappearance in Minnesota," Russ Klein, Burger King's chief marketing officer, said in a statement Friday.


Ah, I can see the SpongeBob picture on the milk cartons now...

That reminds me of the episode where Spongebob was hiding from Sandy and she tore up the town looking for him.

I shudder to think anyone would pay a ransom for one of those things. What has the world come to?

Ya, but have you watched that stuff lately? Once in a while it is on the cartoon channel and I wonder why I was ever amused with that dry bread. I'm not claiming that I was not into it at the time, but now I look back and wonder what I ever saw in that blatently obvious goody-goody brainwashing garbage.

ITA! My daughter, who is 3.5 loves that show, but she is not allowed to watch it here. My MIL always lets her watch it there. That show has nothing educational about it, and it's so darn annoying. I can't believe someone would steal those big pieces of crap and demand ransom. Hopefully no one is stupid enough to pay them!
