Well, that didn't take long, did it? Balloon Boy went from riveting story to Internet meme in no time at all -- and now it's reached the last, best level of all: video game. You, too, can waste taxpayer dollars in the fantasy realm, and your employer's time in real life (double bonus if your employer is the government and you are wasting tax dollars in-game AND in-life!), as you soar through the skies shooting birds, collecting time-extensions, dodging obstacles and otherwise acting like a Falcon Heene who actually got off the ground. As a game, it's only moderately entertaining, but as a yardstick for our cultural fascination with this story, it's pure awesome. Beats a TV movie-of-the-week
