INTERNET TO BALLOON BOY: WE’VE GOT JOKES

By: 10.16.09  •  9 Comments

The “CSI: Miami” comic never gets old. Never.

In the aftermath of yesterday’s hysterical coverage of Falcon Heene’s “balloon boy” hoax, a wounded Internet has responded the only way it knows how: with TV jokes. Not only is there the always-delightful Horatio Caine pun above, but the most-cited pop culture reference yesterday was probably “Simpsons” episode 8F11 (“Radio Bart”), in which Bart tricks the town of Springfield into thinking that a little boy named Timmy O’Toole is trapped in a well. (One of the better tweets I saw yesterday predicted a charity single called “We’re Throwing Our Love Into the Sky.”)

And just for good measure, how about a facebook status and comments that rewrites the theme to “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” for Balloon Boy? Sure, why not?
