Balloon Boy

What are little boys made of?
"Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That's what little boys are made of !"

What are little girls made of?
"Sugar and spice and all things nice
That's what little girls are made of!"

That having been said, I bet that Falcon Heene hadn't the faintest idea that he was the center of attention in today's biggest news story about a runaway helium balloon and a missing boy .... being that while the search was under way, Falcon was hiding in a cardboard box in the attic watching TV or something supposedly fearing for his fanny. They said that even Al-Jazeera followed the drama live. Use to be kids flew kites. I guess kites are so yesterday. At any rate, entrepreneurs are already busy cashing in on the phenomenon.

Dude. Did you see the kid barf all over his dad and himself on the Today Show this morning? He *clearly* has the flu and Good Lord if your child has the flu DO NOT PUT HIM ON NATIONAL TELEVISION FOR A LIVE INTERVIEW. There were 2 cameras for the interview - and after the barfing, neither could figure out where the real story was so, regrettably, we all saw barf, the other brother freaking out about the barf, and the dad trying to wipe the barf off of him while defending himself to Meredith Vierra. Again - flu=no live broadcast.

Ann- I missed that. Yeah, you shouldn't put a kid with flu on national tv.
