A cemetery's decision to withdraw its approval for a pair of SpongeBob SquarePants headstones has sparked a controversy in Cincinnati. Sgt. Kimberly Walker was murdered by her boyfriend last Valentine's Day. Walker was an avid fan of SpongeBob SquarePants. The family decided to have two 6-foot-tall SpongeBob SquarePants headstones erected. The first, dressed in an Army uniform, would be for Kimberly. The second, dressed in Navy attire, would be for her twin sister, Kara, who currently serves. Each gravestone costs $13,000 and weighs 7,000-pounds. The gravestones were installed on October 10, but the family was asked to remove the headstones because they didn't fit cemetery guidelines. A spokesperson for the cemetery said they feel horrible about the misunderstanding and would be willing to pay for another monument that would fit the cemetery's guidelines. (Yahoo News)
