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."
The ransom note is signed by SpongeBob's nemesis, Plankton. A postscript reads: "Patrick is next," referring to SpongeBob's cartoon friend.
At a southeast Utah Burger King, vandals made off with a six-by-ten-foot balloon of Spongebob.
Employees are handing out "Missing" fliers with a full description of the popular cartoon figure -- featured in a new movie.
