I found this hilarious story on Boing Boing

A recent cartoon caper has hit home: A giant blow-up of SpongeBob SquarePants is missing from the roof of a Burger King in south-central Omaha.

The inflatable was atop the store at 5155 Center St. to promote the restaurant chain's toy giveaway in connection with the release of "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie."

The 10-foot inflatables, which cost $1,200 each, according to a police report, can be seen on the roofs of other Burger Kings.

Similar SpongeBobs have disappeared from Burger Kings in at least two other states, including Minnesota, where a "kidnapper" asked for ransom - 10 Crabby Patties, fries and milkshakes. The note was signed by SpongeBob's cartoon nemesis, Plankton.
