The Heene's As "The Aristocrats"

The saga of "Balloon Boy" Falcon Heene and the Heene family echo's back to another famous family trying to break into show biz.

Here Keith Olbermann explains- aided by Gilbert Gottfried, George Carlin, Bob Saget, Lewis Black, Penn and Teller, and others telling the tale of The Aristocrats.

I have a policy of no profanity on the pages of this blog. But if you really "don't get" the analogy of the Heenes to the fictional "Aristocrats" here's a link to Bob Saget's version of the much told Aristocrats joke. Be warned, if you offend easily don't click on to the video....when you look up "raunchy" in your online dictionary, this video is probably embedded as Exhibit A (but you will laugh!).

Or check, or trusty old Wikepedia for "just the facts" behind The Aristocrats.

When the story of what the boyb said first came out, I was inclined to give the family the benefit of the doubt. OOPS!

TomCat- the Balloon Boy story had a real strange smell about it from the beginning. I think Jack Cafferty started calling it a hoax about an hour into it.

We had an interesting story from North Jersey today....WCBS had a helicopter and news crew following some guy who got stuck in mud up to his waist in a reservoir. For about a half an hour we watched as rescue workers extricated him, as the anchors in New York gave the audience commentary....

A natural follow up to Balloon Boy...

Today we had "Mud Man".

I don't blame you at all, Hugh. I usually try to give people the benefit of the doubt until they prove me wrong.
