Balloon Boy's Dad Wastes Everyone's Time

10/17/2009 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In what was easily the dumbest press conference of all-time, Richard Heene's "big announcement" was that he was, to some extent, setting up a suggestion box. Say what?

Richard Heene -- play video

Heene only spoke for about a minute, telling reporters that he doesn't have cable so he doesn't know what people are saying about his family. So he's putting a box out in front of his house so people can ask questions and he'll come back later and answer them.

Here's a question: "What is wrong with you people!?!?!?!?"

Oh, he did say that the whole balloon stunt was absolutely not a hoax. Whatever.

While he may even be too dumb for a TLC show, he is doing a great job meeting the idiot loser requirement to get his own VH-1 reality show!

Someone needs to tell Richard that April 1st past already. This guy is a complete joke. Having the reporters put questions in a box only fuels speculation. I guess he wants time to study answers.

Richard = FAIL.

A suggestion box? What is this, kindergarten?

I have a question for Mr. Heene... which of his three kids farted during that Wolf Blitzer interview? It happened at around the 00:44 second mark just after Falcon said, "We did this for the show." Just take a listen.

Yet, all these "news" people stood around waiting for this guy and his "big" announcement, knowing full well this guy is a nut job. Guess he can con just about anyone. http://newsy1.wordpress.com
