Balloon Boy's Nutjob Dad Already Had a Theme Song
Well, it was bound to happen. Somebody was destined to take the mantle of "America's Most Hated Person" from the aptly named Spencer Pratt. It's an "NC State Beats Houston-Style" upset.

Richard Heene, the architect of one of the most asinine plots in pop culture history, just wanted to be a television personality. A make believe character like Bill Nye The Science Guy or Glenn Beck. So he crafted The Great Balloon Boy Hoax of 2009. Thinking that after the dust settled and your 6-year-old wouldn't possibly spill the beans on CNN, network execs would just hand him a television show. Of course that is what would happen, Richie. Every hoaxer is given a reality television show afterwards. Like the guys that crafted the Roswell Alien Autopsy or the hicks that had Bigfoot's corpse. Hours later Discovery Channel gave them shows on the telly.

Richie already had a theme song. Which he ... "sang."



Spelling the show Psyence Detective is just infuriating. How "hip" of you Richie. Moron...

C'mon, who doesn't have a theme song?

Sure, I have a few, but they are sung by Joey Ramone, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan.

'Up up and away in my beautiful balloon'

Note to people of the future reading this - this story won't make any sense to y'all cause it doesn't make any sense now.
