The Balloon Boy Joke Formula

Over at the Huffington Post, they have a list of “Balloon Boy Jokes.” I do not have to read any of them. I have created a formula whereby anyone can invent a perfect “balloon boy” joke.

Take an old joke. Tell the old joke, inserting “balloon boy” as the joke’s protagonist. When the punchline rolls around, just make a sort of scared screaming noise and a hand gesture that indicates that you are floating away.

For instance.

Knock Knock. Who’s there? Balloon Boy. Balloon Boy who? Auuuuuugh!

How many Balloon Boys does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Auuuuuugh!

So this Balloon Boy walks into a bar, and he says to the bartender, he says, “Auuuuuugh!”

Or even:

Hey. I fucked your dog. I shit in your purse. I’m out of here. Auuuuuugh!

Sure. It’s silly. But it’s not nearly as silly as the story itself.

Bonus Points: If you work in the sound of a child throwing up.
