Tickle Me, SpongeBob

Thanks to Redmond company Mobui, SpongeBob SquarePants, erstwhile target of the religious right, is now available for tickling on your iPhone.

Released on January 20th, SpongeBob Tickler "creates a virtual underwater iPhone buddy that lives in players' pockets and allows them to manipulate a virtual SpongeBob by shaking, poking and stretching the iPhone screen."

The app has now reached the top 10 in iPhone application sales. And the morality police can breathe easy: SpongeBob is asexual, so you don't have to worry about the tickling escalating into something more.
