An Open Letter to the Parents of Balloon Boy

Dear Parents of Balloon Boy,

I can smell your stench of narcissism and dishonesty from here and let me just say that I would rather smell rotting fish guts on a 100 degree day.

Jocelyn Stott


  1. Aren't they something? I want to say my reporter's soul called this one during the flight, but I had no idea how absolutely despicable these two really are.

    But your blog today? I can't stop laughing! Thank you!

    Love You!

  2. OMG you are hilarious...totally agree. The dad is especially creepy for some reason...

  3. Bwah ha ha ha haaaaaaa!

    You are right on girlfriend.

    (And just wanted you to know- I have rented Coraline, complete with 3D glasses for my viewing pleasure this week after my kiddos go to bed... am I told old?)

  4. I totally agree! I watched a clip of one of the interviews, which was then analyzed by an expert on body language. The expert pointed out all the subtle things the father did that indicated deception. While I certainly see what the expert was talking about, I didn't need an expert to tell me there was deception -- all I needed to see was the way the sweet little boy behaved -- that child could not hold still. His two younger siblings sat perfectly still, but the six yr. old fidgeted and flopped around -- a nervous wreck. I feel so sorry for that little boy.

    Nothing gets me more riled up than seeing a child exploited, and that child most certainly was being exploited.

    Great letter, Jocelyn.

  5. can you believe I didnt have cable at the time and missed the whole story? I gotta go google it now!

  6. Seems like the parents had a really dumb idea that will now cost them money instead of making money like they were probably originally hoping for.

  7. I totally saw the Wife Swap or whatever that they were on. CRAZY!
