Christmas is around the corner and New Year's not too far behind! As 2009 comes to a close, I'm bringing you 12 Days of Christmas. And in typical Tool Time style, each day will feature one of the biggest tools of the past year. Whether their stupidity made us laugh or brought us to tears, they certainly made this year eventful!
1. Kicking off the list are the fools behind my favorite news story of the year - Richard and Mayumi Heene aka Balloon Boy's parents. I could think of 100 better things to do with tin foil, but these idiots decided to craft a UFO shaped balloon and plot one of the biggest hoaxes of the year.
Claiming that their 6-yr-old son was on the board, these bullshit artists tearfully expressed fears that their little Falcon could be inside. Surprise, surprise - the kid was hiding in the attic the whole time. In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Falcon revealed "You guys said we did this for the show." Props to Falcon for calling BS on his d-bag parents and their pathetic publicity stunt.
My favorite part of this story: Poor little Falcon vomiting in a tupperware container on national TV as his bros look on in disgust and his fame-whore parents continue with the interview. DYFS please???
