For the record… October 16, 2009

balloonI did not, for one second, believe that little boy was in the runaway balloon.  As soon as I heard the parents were ‘storm chasers’ and had been on the TV reality show ‘Wife Swap’ I said to myself – it is time to bring in child services and rescue those kids – not from a balloon- but from their parents. Gasp!

–  Millions of Americans Waste Entire Fucking Afternoon (from the incomparable Andy Borowitz) – Balloon Boy to America: Punk’d!

COLORADO (The Borowitz Report) – Moments after a little boy who was believed to be in his parents’ homemade helium balloon was found safe and sound, millions of Americans came to the realization that they had flushed the entire fucking afternoon down the fucking toilet.

“I watched the entire drama unfold and then it turned out that no drama had unfolded,” said Carol Foyler, 32, of Missoula, Montana.  “I can’t tell you how pissed I am at that fucking kid.”

At their Colorado home, the parents of six-year-old Falcon Heene said that they were relieved that their son was all right and that they were pushing forward with their plans to build a giant child-operated flame-throwing robot.

I didn’t know the backstory on these wife-swapping, storm (and publicity)-chasing lunatics until this morning. I feel so used.

Who doesn’t love Andy Borowitz? and I, too, had my doubts about the kid in the hot air balloon.

Plus, they named the kid FALCON. What’s up with that?
