From the Obscure Store:

Politicos don't want city to be linked to SpongeBob
A radio personality's proposal to bring SpongeBob SquarePants to the sponge capital of the United States is getting a chilly reception. "I watched it, and I really don't want to be associated with it," says Tarpon Springs, Fla. Commissioner Karen Brayboy. Another politician says of the cartoon character: "I can't fathom why it's a square, synthetic sponge." (St. Petersburg Times)

Well, duh. If it was an organic sponge, then the square pants wouldn't fit.

Speaking of which, at dinner tonight, the little girl at the table next to mine was wearing SpongeBob SquarePants shoes. Slightly more interesting is that the little girl's father was US Representaive David Wu (D-OR).
