You’d be hard pressed to find a more influential cartoon series in the last fifteen years or so than Spongebob Squarepants. That little sponge and his underwater buddies have already influenced generations of kids, with more on the way. Now some of these kids, and their parents, will get to dine on real life Krabby Patties. A real life Krusty Krab is set to open.
Located in the Palestinian town known as Ramallah, Krusty Krab is an almost perfect homage to Spongebob’s favorite fast food joint. In other words, the restauranteurs outdid themselves. It looks just like its cartoon counterpart, complete with boat-like cash register, the iconic tri-color tables and nautically-themed doors. About the only thing it does wrong is allow people to breathe without the use of gills.
The restaurant has already had its soft opening, so it could be opening its doors for good any day now. Word is it will actually be serving seafood. There has been no word on if they will actually employ octopuses, sponges and crabs.
