Death by a thousand cuts?

reasongonemad: AP has **7** reporters on Balloon Boy coverage. We're digging good journalism's grave with this nonsense, friends.

Yeah, maybe you're right, but Gawker's got a really interesting piece by a guy who said he helped Heene create this hoax.

Start spreading the news....

Ieatmykidzsnack: I can't wait for Balloon Boy the musical.

More joy....

willfullyblind: Balloon boy's family must be related to Octomom. Criminals charges for exploiting kids & being burden for tax payers. Thank you

Deja Vu?

Joseph68: FAA definitely will press charges against balloon boy's family, same happened to Lawn Chair Larry.

Hmmm.... Lawn Chair Larry? He was one of the original Darwin Award nominees. Here's his story...

ReminisceSmith: Was I the only one who didn't care about the boy being on a balloon?

Yeah, probably.

And our favorite tweet so far comes from a man who has no problems with self-awareness.

bevanhouston: I'm seriously considering buying this commemorative Balloon Boy t-shirt. Incidentally, I'm an idiot.

We don't think you're an idiot, Bevan. But don'tcha think someone could make a better t-shirt? It's only been three days though....

Anyway, Colorado officials will be holding another press conference tomorrow on the issue at 11am (Mountain Time). As long as the football games won't be interrupted, we're fine with that.

In the meantime, we could embed a video from today's press conference, but we'd rather go with this music video from the 80s.


Hey, we'll never file charges against you. But if we change our minds, we'll let you know on Twitter. So follow us!
