Balloon Boy's Bubble Pops





So Balloon Boy says they did it for the show. Color me shocked.

You know what needs to happen here?

Dad needs acting lessons. Wolf Blitzer needs a set of balls. Parents need to pay back the state of Colorado. Everyone involved needs their parenting and journalism licenses permanently revoked.

That poor kid.

These people are SERIOUSLY pissing me off. They're just STUPID!

P.S. Did you see the interview where that Falcom kid puked on camera this morning, lol? (I really shouldn't laugh at that.)

Did you see this family on Wife Swap?? What a bunch!!

I do think the whole thing smells fishy.

Am I dumb here? They WERE on a show, past tense. They're not on a show NOW are they? I don't get it. Why would the kid's parents tell him to do something so stupid "for the show?" There's GOT to be something more to it. Somebody needs to dig a little deeper here.

Personally, I vote that they are the first family to get sent to the moon. Permanently.

Tara, the dad has some science-based web show he'd like developed. I'd link to it, but I don't want the bastard to get the publicity.

Oh, and I did see the kid puke--he did twice today, once on camera for the today show and once off camera for MSNBC. So wrong, this poor little guy all stressed out over his asshat parents. (However, I did LOL. I know, I'm going to hell.)

And LceeL, that's an awesome idea. So fitting, too.

re: the child puking---doesn't it make you wonder what was/is going on between dad and kid? Kind of creeps me out the way the dad explained to Blitzer how Falcon hides when he thinks he's in trouble. Wonder what he's hiding from and why the mention of his talking about "the show" makes him sick? the whole thing feels very strange, and sad.

I think he's barfing everywhere because his parents freaked the fuck out the second they were all alone and he knows he screwed everything up big time. His parents couldn't hide their horror even through the video.

Dad mentioned the lagging behind thing because he wanted to sell his kid out as the naughty weakling who can't keep up since he couldn't think fast enough to answer the question as to why he would've said that.

It's revolting.

Couple of things: Mom and dad met at acting class; clearly they didn't learn how to act. And I live in Colorado, and at some point I think the stupid balloon actually went over my house, and they should most definitely pay our state back! How unfair for my taxes to be spent on this crap!! Also, I would like an apology. I was a MESS all day as I watched the ENTIRE thing unfold on tv. I hate them.
