SpongeBob SquarePants

A leader of a special interest group uses her political ties to shut down the Krabby Patty where SpongeBob works. To get around the closure, and to start selling his food again, Mr. Krab decides to illegally sell patties out of SpongeBob’s house. This is a nice example of how markets respond to disruptions in supply.
