Now that the much-maligned Rochester ferry has been ferried off to jumbo catamaran neverland, Torontonians may find it difficult to commit the grave Spongebob felonies that have gripped Burger King’s latest US film tie-in promotion. BK’s across the country have been given 10-ft inflatable Spongebobs to decorate their buildings. But, and this is a real shocker, people are stealing up to the fast food chain and making off with these Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade-size toys in broad daylight. How does one run down the street with a giant yellow Spongebob, Torontoist wonders. “Spongebob has departed,” said the manager in charge of the Rochester BK where the theft occured. So best.
And it only got more best when TOist performed a cursory search for related small town sponge thefts. Writers have been having a field day with ‘a famous actor has been kindnapped’ theft stories in Hornell, St. Cloud, and Brainerd. Where is Marge when you need her?
