AP - Have you seen this sponge? Police are looking for 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.”

[How much do you want to bet this is a stunt by BK ad agency CPB? Note in the article, the ransom notes are signed by Plankton. — tim]
