Balloon Boy: Up, Up And Away In My Beautiful Meme

Turn off the computer and the TV for a couple of hours and the whole place goes nuts. Of course reading about Balloon Boy after it had all passed make the whole incident seem like, well, hot air.

Some media-savvy folk's balloon got loose and a six-year-old kid was hiding in a box and for that nobody did any work this afternoon? At least we get a short-lived meme out of it.

Facebook page from Red Feet, via Urlesque, who has collected up 18 or so of them. Nice work, intertubes.

  1. I didn't hear about Balloon Boy until I got off work this evening, and then only after I'd been around the net. Needless to say, there were a few minutes where I was utterly puzzled!

  2. "Yo Balloon Boy, I'm a let you finish, but Anne Frank had the best attic hideout spot of all time."

    Yeah, it just came out of nowhere and will be gone just as quickly. Unless it turns out to be the publicity stunt it appears like.

  3. Only just yesterday, Bruce Willis was telling this story to his hostage psychiatrist.

  4. Well, he is from the future...
