The Balloon Boy Is Everywhere!!!

No matter where you’re at, you’ve probably heard the news about the boy in the balloon today. Our sales team at work was hearing about it from our clients over the phone, people were getting emails about it and it was all over Twitter. This was a story that couldn’t be avoided.

Have you seen Google Hot Trends lately? This story has taken up almost every single spot in the list of top 40 searches. At one point it had taken up every single spot except for the very last entry which was “garth brooks out of retirement,” except I wasn’t able to get a screenshot of that one.

Check out the screenshot I WAS able to get. I put arrows next to the searches that weren’t related to the balloon boy/attic boy story.
