(Excerpt) Read more at drudgereport.com ...
go to drudgerport.com for details...can’t post USA Today article info per terms - 10 am. press conference - doesn’t say which time zone
I think balloon dad should be ignored.
I think balloon dad is an alien.
Awesome. I hear the familys planning to invade canada.
I think balloon dad is an airhead.
Planning on writing a book?
That Balloon Dad is going to get a grown-up haircut?
Plays first base.
No, you're thinking about the POTUS
Announcement: Son Falcon is the first boy to become pregnant. (Hence the morning sickness on all the news shows yesterday.)
He had a new reality show planned. It has been cancelled.
He is going into drug rehab?
He is going into AA?
The kids are really aliens that landed in his yard in a space ship?
Book, movie, new rap song, pay for view telecast of the kids swearing, farting, throwing up.....all that and much much more!
Methinks a little publicity on a tv show has triggered a desire for much more camera time, thus the hoax on the balloon and now this “announcement”..
His 15 minutes will be up soon..
The more I hear about this, the more I think it was a hoax.
hmm...that tin foil hat looks a lot like the balloon he built
“.... I am selling these balloons and here is where you can buy one...”
I thought I heard something like that too. What was he talking about? There was nothing electrical in that contraption.....
But wait, there's more!
“I think he is going to announce that he has contracted to sell that balloon for $19.95 real soon. Everyone can have one and if you act now they will send you 2, that’s right 2 for the price of one.”
But wait, there’s more! If you act now, they will throw in a barfing kid for FREE!
NOW how much would you pay?
exactly...the fact that he wants everyone to tune in...”I’m having a press conference at 10 and ...it’s going to be big.” tells me it’s going to be stupid.
They’re reporting his youngest kid is missing again.....
Balloon Dad should be FINED out of his gourd! And maybe sleep a few weeks in the county jail.
” Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, I am here to announce that my three sons, Falcon, Owl, and Toad, are in fact reptilian aliens from Xaros, our home planet, which is 100 trillion light years from earth.!
Throw in some Ginzu knives and I’m there!
Dispatcher: Okay, where was the saucer? Was it in the backyard?
Richard Heene: Uh, hello?
Dispatcher: Yes, is this Richard?
Heene: Yes, it is.
Dispatcher: Okay, how long has the six year old been missing?
Heene: Just a few minutes, uh...
Dispatcher: Was the flying saucer in the backyard?
Dispatcher: Okay, it obviously has electronics, which he can know how to work it and he gets it up off the air? Off the ground?
Heene: (sobbing) No. He does not know how it operates.
Dispatcher: He does not know how to operate. So, and that's gone, though, too, right? So you are sure that he's in that.
Heene: We looked everywhere, and then my son just said, verify and he said, "Yeah, he went inside then (unintelligible) went off. Then we had it tethered, it wasn't supposed to take off.
Dispatcher: Okay, and was it running then?
Heene: Well, it doesn't run, its filled with helium, and it operates off a million volts to move left and right horizontal.
Heene: And uh, we were testing it to find out what effect we could get.
Dispatcher: Okay. So it was last seen 20 minutes ago?
Heene: Um, yeah, Im losing track of time. Probably - yeah.
Dispatcher: Okay. So there's no electronics on it, theres no tracking device, right?
Heene: No, no. Uh, I don't know if it's possible, if you guys could track the electricity that it emits? But every five minutes, it comes on for one minute, and it emits a million volts on the outer skin.
Heene: And uh, if he kicks it or touches it, he could be electrocuted.
Wow....Did anyone see that???
a million volts of electricity....yea, sure...
This guy comes out with a cardboard box, tells the news crews to put their questions into the box, then he walks back into the house with the box....
Who does he think he is...Ben Franklin??
He probably could sell it as a toy...my grandson has a couple of toy helicopters and they're pretty expensive for what probably equates to 50 cents worth of materials and 50 cents for chinese labor.
He has bammie’s birth certificate?
Dad: “Falcon was on board during the whole flight but the transporter worked perfectly and transported him to the box in the garage perfectly.”
This guy was known for running off at a moments notice to chase storms across the landscape....So why didn’t he chase the balloon his kid was supposed to be in?
Announcing his kids will be getting real names?
Naw. That’s too much to hope for.
We are accepting donations.
is that true? i read that same thing on another site but no one is reporting that
He was attempting to extend his already-expired 15 minutes of fame.
press conference: another hoax
Last night a blog I read said TLC has reconsidered and offered the Heene’s a contract for a reality show. This could replace the canceled John & Kate Plus 8. It would fit right in with their obsession with dysfunctional families.
I kid you not...This guy comes out with a cardboard box, tells the news crews to put their questions into the box, and it looked like he walked back into the house with the box....
The new crew guys are standing there with their jaws hanging down looking at the box...This is great comedy.
I saw the video of it lifting off and the fact that the camera was on and the dads reaction made me even more sure that this is a hoax.
