Proof That ‘Balloon Boy’ Was a Hoax For Sale

Anybody who cares about the “balloon boy” story this much deserves to be separated from their money.

From the Business Insider:

There is allegedly proof that the story of balloon boy Falcon Heene was a stunt to help pitch a television show.

But the purported proof will cost you thousands of dollars to get.

Today, we spoke with a Denver-area student who claims to have worked with Falcon’s father, Richard Heene, on a reality show proposal for ABC.

The student wants to sell the infomation and says the National Enquirer is considering buying it for between $5,000 and $8,000.

Won’t it be funny if somebody pays the money and the “student” turns out to be someone named… Richard Heene? It wouldn’t be surprising — He seems like a fairly enterprising oddball.
