Some dude has some kind of earth-shattering confession about Balloon Boy's Dad

custom_1255772039835_FirefoxScreenSnapz006So Gawker has some huge exclusive thing on the Heene family paid for, presumably, by Lord Denton in order to slam the loud glare of truth on a family of fametards. I didn’t really read it but I skimmed it. It’s a Sunday morning. We all have better stuff to do.

I did find stuff like this in it:

But he was motivated by theories I thought were far-fetched. Like Reptilians — the idea there are alien beings that walk among us and are shape shifters, able to resemble human beings and running the upper echelon of our government.

And this:

Richard’s story doesn’t add up. He is saying he thought Falcon was in the balloon, and that Falcon ran and hid as a result of Richard yelling at him. I’ve spent a lot of time with them, and Falcon is, first of all, not afraid of his father. I’ve never once seen Richard’s children afraid of him — and I’ve definitely never seen Falcon go hide. He was one of the most social of the three children.

Also, someone found Heene positing about the existence of the Richard Geere Gerbil

Apparently his goal is to become an A-List celebrity by faking a UFO landing. Heck, if Orson Welles could do it, why not some dude outside of Denver who was on Wife Swap?

What we essentially learn that the whole thing was either a convoluted flight gone wrong (1. Dad yells during balloon test. 2. Kid hides. 3. Dad thinks kid is in balloon when he can’t find him. 4. Profit!) or a ham-handed attempt at gaining publicity (1. Balloon escapes/is let go. 2. Dad tells kid to hide. 3. World watches balloon race. 4. Profit!). Either way, this whole story stinks and I think we should stop encouraging this strange man and his family.
