Balloon Boy's Dad -- Not Smart, Not Funny

11/1/2009 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We've already established Richard Heene is no scientist -- turns out he isn't a comedian either.

Richard Heene

TMZ has obtained a copy of a book Heene wrote back in 1994 called "The Official Offensive Driving Handbook." We know it's supposed to be funny because it's categorized as "humor" -- but that's the only clue. Mostly it just comes across as offensive.

In a chapter about the types of drivers to avoid, he refers to one group as "Jam'in Bro in His Cadillac," another as "Towelheads" and another as "Orientals." And the book is littered with photos with Heene dressed up as people from the various groups.

There are also photos of Heene on the toilet and one of him holding a water gun as if he were Rambo -- for reasons that aren't immediately clear.

I read somewhere that this loser of a father staged that balloon hoax in hopes of getting a reality tv show. Reality tv shows are the bottom of the barrel as far as entertainment goes, assuming they can even be called entertaintment, and they remind me of what it used be like years ago when friends and/or family forced you to sit and watch their god awful home movies.

It's all clear.
Certain folks can't drive, certain folks drive cars far too big for them, certain folks come with their own windshield wiping cloth, and some folks mistake a toilet seat for a driver's seat. Geez, if you d then idn't know all that you don't deserve an illegal alien's driver's license like they sell at Pico/Union in LA.

If I did hoax the whole balloon thing, which I didn't isn't that even more reason for me to get a reality TV show? Sorry you may not like reality TV but I am made for reality TV, did you see my episode of Swap?
