Has the Balloon Falcon story gone too far?
They would have gotten away with it if they actually put the kid in the balloon, but shame on them for not having the will to succeed. And I'm getting tired of people reusing that joke about how he shouldn't be called "Balloon Boy" since he was never in the balloon and should be called "Attic Boy" instead. I first heard it on SNL, but Seth Meyers may have stolen it from someone else, who knows? I'll attribute him with it even though it's not that good of a joke. Do they really expect the news to call him "Attic Boy"? People should know better than to expect anything from the news these days, much less logic.
