Pocket Ninja: Good. And I'm glad they threatened the wife with deportation, and I'm sorry that there probably won't be any jail time for the guy. They deserve far worse than is going to happen to them. And part of any sentence they receive should be that they can never, ever, in any way, shape, or form, earn any sort of money or other payment that in any tangible way relates to this entire thing. In fact, they should each have to lose a finger every single time they end up on camera. Throw them in the woods and let them live out their lives as hermits. That's how you punish attention whores.

What if they start using smoke signals?.

OMG, now he's fallen into the hands of the hands of the Illuminati Lizard people. There is no hope for the rest of us. He was the last man standing between us and the alien NWO government.

/or maybe he's setting a trap for them.

After reading the kind of posts you normally make on Fark, I think this one deserves the Irony tag.

Wasn't Heene a "stormchaser" as well, and wanted to take his kids to NOLA for Katrina?

Is it just me or are all stormchasers huge d-bags (judging from this Heene asshat and the Discovery show)?

There's another porn shock site in development as we speak. It involves a girl putting beans up her butt and then farting them into a balloon.

spartacus_prime: * The money wasted by the media in reporting this

Oh come on, the media loved this, hoax or not. For two hours every media outlet, Fark included, basked in the joy of relentless eyeballs or repeated refreshes. And to top it off Wolf Blitzer gets to be the Edward R. Murrow of the whole thing when his "relentless pursuit of the truth" caused the charade to be uncovered. He's probably lobbying for a Pulitzer right now.

Police and EMTs got to run around north central Colorado actually with a thought that they might be doing something interesting, rather than the mundane traffic stops and domestic violence calls that permeates their every day work. They were romping around, organizing search parties, riding ATVs...they love that crap.

Who the hell was harmed by this? Slap the parents on the wrist, give them a hefty, but not outrageous, fine and stop all the sanctimonious drivel.

Your time wasted? Please, you lead a worthless existence at a worthless job. This was the highlight of that day for you. Was completing your TPS cover letter really that much more important?

I truly don't understand all the hate for this family. So they're attention whores who want their own show. So?
We have no problem with dozens of other no talents who are EXACTLY the same (John and Kate, Kardashian family, The Hillz, etc.)
At the very least, these people pulled a great prank, one that fooled almost everybody, kept us all entertained for a couple hours, and gave us here at Fark one of the best threads ever.
That's way more entertainment than I've gotten from any of these other bullshiat reality show stars.
Amazing how butt-hurt people get just because they were fooled. No one got hurt, get your panties out of a wad.
Give 'em their own show. Then ignore them.

Sure, give Richard Heene his own show.

The reality tv version of Oz.

Episode 1, Heene and the other "Fish" arrive for their first day in prison, are brutally violated in the showers.

Episode 2-30, Heene re-thinks the whole "it sure would be great to pick an asian chick to be my wife, because they're all subservient and sh*t" theory as he's passed around like a bowl of yams at Thanksgiving.

That'll only make you work hard enough not to get fired.

Somedays, the whining, on Fark of all places, of the existence of the banal, the stupid and the waste of time is just a bit more cognitive dissonance than I can handle.
