Grow Up, News Boy

I was recording my afternoon newscast today and bad is it that I could barely get through this story because I was laughing?

THREE CHILDREN WERE INJURED SUNDAY WHEN AN INFLATED JUMPING BALLOON THEY WERE IN WAS PICKED UP BY A WHIRLWIND AND CARRIED AT LEAST TEN FEET IN THE AIR. The bounce house flew over a wall in El Paso before crashing into a backyard three houses away. The freak accident occurred while the children were playing during an Easter family gathering. Witnesses say a wind, described as a whirlwind or dust devil broke the jumping balloon off a tether. It blew the balloon through the air across the street where it snapped electrical lines, went over a wall and fell into a backyard, according to the El Paso Times."

Yep. I'm still laughing.

I can't tell you how many times I cracked up during my newscasts when it was completely inappropriate. I'm so glad there wasn't a blooper reel.
