Heene Meenie Minie Moe…

…catch a Balloon Boy by the toe, if he hollers let him go ontevee and puke. Heene meenie minie moe.

I
have a confession to make: I’m enjoying this ridiculous story; particularly because it’s making the cable tevee nitwits
squirm because they fell for such a blatant hoax. Dumbasses.

The latest twist is that Richard Heene not only has Hugh Grant hair but he
wrote a theme song for the reality show he hoped the hoax would, uh,
launch before it crash landed:


Dig that crazy spelling
folks, Richard Heene Psyience Detective. And that tune: I guess they
thought it was Stray Cats/Dave Edmunds style rockabilly but it sounds
like crapabilly instead.

Then
there’s the *other* jingle, Richard Heene: Contractor. Apparently, he’s
not just an expert in blowing smoke up people’s ass, he knows how to
lay drywall. Pun very much intended.

    Wish I’d gotten a pic of the chalkboard in front of Henry’s Bar this past weekend: it was advertising free balloon rides with a pic of that spacey saucer on it.

    Didn’t catch the PSY spelling of science. Does that mean that he also intended to investigate the paranormal?

    God only knows. He gives me the Heene Jeebies.

    You know, the absurd thing about all this is how much CNN is playing up the idea that Blitzer’s questioning is what ended up unraveling the hoax. Bravo, Wolf! Way to pigeonhole a kid and make him squirm.
    Someone put this guy up for a Pulitzer . . .
    Seriously, am I the only one who wishes the media could dog important stories this hard?

    I agree but low hanging fruit like this clumsy hoax is hard to pass up. Investigative pieces are hard work and expensive.
