Balloon Boy Dad Theatre: The Bear Scratch

Remember that whole balloon boy hoax, wherein a terrible man exploited his family to achieve fleeting notoriety through national panic before being fined and jailed? I try not too every day. But Richard Heene is back, scummier than ever.

Go away, Richard Heene! Take your horrible Bear Scratch with you, along with its horrible tagline and horrible bear-baiting logic. I like my crazies wacky-but-harmless, not loud-and-log-brandishing. [CrunchGear]
