Remember a few years back when the world was turned upside down because some douchebag decided stage a stunt about his son being stuck in a mylar balloon?
Remember the next day? “Balloon Boy” was dinner table talk and his dad was a douche x ∞ when his kid let the cat out of the bag on national TV by indicating it was a stunt?
Oh, and do you remember that dad ended up going to jail because he staged said stunt?
It seems our douchey dad is back and feels his 15 minutes of fame are still at 7 minutes.
Richard Heene has a new product on the market that he thinks will revolutionize the “ketchup (or any thick substance) is stuck at the bottom of the bottle” industry. But it’s not without paying a hefty price for the product.
Heene is asking for nearly $200 bucks for a crank and a couple of bungee cords. It better be made of gold because I wouldn’t buy this thing if I knew that I could just plan ahead and turn my bottle upside down for a day.
So I guess the moral of the story is:
If you think you can convince half of America that your son is stuck in a balloon, you can convince them that getting the ketchup out of a jar in record time is worth the money.
Wait, that isn't a moral...
