Balloon Boy's Dad: I'll Scratch Your Back

10/24/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Balloon Boy's dad Richard Heene has hatched a new money making scheme that doesn't involve exploiting his kids -- and TMZ has learned it involves a giant back scratcher ... and a whole lot of yelling.

Sources tell us Richard has invented a contraption called the "Bear Scratch" -- basically an upright piece of wood you use to scratch your back ... you know, like a bear would.

TMZ got its mitts on a video of Richard practice-pitching the gadget -- and ... just a suggestion ... he should probably take it down a few decibels.

Billy Mays he's not.

Please tell us the profits from this stupid invention go directly to the state of Colorado for emergency services, police, and the FAA. Balloon boy Dad needs to pay.
