Sadly, it turns out balloon boy might be a hoax.
What self-respecting parent would get a small child to lie like that on national television?! Seasoned parents know the good liars are the teenagers. Little kids crack under pressure, but teens are like hardened criminals. They lie and lie and continue to lie even under the face of mounting evidence!
Learn a lesson, stupid attention whoring parents!
One person did point out that there's no way that balloon would have held the weight of a small child, even one Falcon's size. Oh, yeah, and who names their kid "Falcon"?!
In honor of this fiasco, I give you......
