FORT COLLINS, Colorado - The Richie Heehaw family, aka The Balloon family has just placed what is probably the most famous hot air balloon in history on eBay.
"Balloon Papa" told a reporter for The Fort Collins Morning Mountaineer that he and his wife, "Balloon Mama" decided that the proceeds from the sale of the balloon will go to pay for college for the three "Balloon Boys," Eagle, Hawk, and Woodpecker.
"Balloon Mama" Maypole Heehaw, said that she also wants to buy that used Toyota Prius she has been wanting for the past two years.
Six-year-old Eagle said that he wants for his parents to use some of the money from the sale of the balloon and buy him some medicine so that he doesn't throw up every 45 minutes.
Hawk said that he wants his mom to buy him a brand new skateboard since it appears that a reporter stole his from the driveway.
Meanwhile Woodpecker says that all he wants is for his dad to buy him some friggin' NBA basketball cards.
Richie Heehaw was asked if he had been approached about starring in a reality show. He smiled and said that he had.
He said that the Nocturnal Network wants them to star in a reality show called The Most Friggin' Messed Up Dysfunctional Effen Family In America.
The Ole Ole Ole Network wants them to star in The Trailer Trash Balloon Family Minus The Trailer.
And Donald Trump's new network, The Hairdo Network wants the Heehaw's to star in a reality show called The Hick Heehaw's Move To Manhattan.
SIDENOTE: The Balloon family attorney Herbert Kranwinkle said that the family has agreed to turn over 100 percent of the money that they make from the sale of the hot air balloon to help pay for his legal fees. Kranwinkle said that meanwhile he has advanced the family $400 to buy everyday things like hot dogs, candy, NBA bubble gun cards, B B's, beer, and condoms.
