A Monday Morning Post That Is Completely Balloon-Boy Free
*Sans Celebrities, Too
I don’t know about you, but I just feel icky. The Balloon Boy scandal was the straw the broke the camel’s back. I am so sick of all the tawdry pop culture stories that have dominated the news cycles as of late. We’ve had Roman Polanski, the Gosselins, Kanye West, David Letterman, and now the Balloon Boy. I plan on writing some commentary later in the week, but I can’t stomach it right now. Since I literally bath in the waters of celebrity gossip and other such events, I feel like I need to take a brillo pad and scrub my psyche free of all the harmful contaminants I have ingested over the last few weeks.
I pondered how I could possibly do this, but then I remembered what always cheers me up. Photos depicting failure, by either man or beast. There is no shortage of them online, and they always manage to get a chuckle out of me. After all, what better way to make yourself feel better than by celebrating the miserable failure of others?
Let’s get back to the basics of snarky fun, and comment on complete strangers for a change. These photos are gleaned from that wonderful old standby, failblog.org. Enjoy. Aren’t you glad you don’t have to read about the Heene family again?
