Happy Friday, y’all!
Let’s jump right on in.
As I type, this bitch is watching the Balloon Family on ABC and NBC at the same time. Balloon Boy has just exited stage left on NBC…apparently he got ill mid-interview, but a bitch wouldn’t be surprised if Balloon Father didn’t jump up into the next segment and announce that Balloon Boy is now trapped on top of the Empire State Building with a giant primate.
The entire Balloon Family is still on ABC, though.
I missed most of Balloon Boy 2009 – The Non-flight of the Foolish…didn’t even know it was going down until someone sent an email asking for prayers and such. But apparently yesterday everyone and their dawg was watching live coverage of a flying saucer-esque balloon that allegedly had a young boy in it and was definitely flying across the sky at a very high altitude.
This bitch totally gets why this story got picked up.
A freakish and photogenic shiny silver balloon + a young child on board + and slow news day = no-brainer.
I get it!
What I’m currently fascinated by is the press…now doubtful ‘cause of something Balloon Boy said on Larry King last night about doing it because of a “show” (Lawd, have mercy!)…yeah, so now the press is attempting to find out if this entire thing was a stunt or if maybe the kids were pulling a stunt on their parents that got out of control or if this whole thing was really what it was reported to be and Balloon Boy really was hiding in the attic while the whole world was watching his balloon as if his ass was in it.
Observing the difficult time these morning anchors are having getting to the facts of the matter sure as shit is fascinating!
C’mon now, people…get your grill on or shut the fuck up ‘bout it!
Hell, a bitch suspects that all y’all aren’t really pissed at all.
I bet the ratings from yesterday’s festival of speculation-based viewage are HUGE.
So, if the Balloon Family didn’t do it all for a show…
…this bitch’ll bet some reality show producer will change that before the weekend is over.
