Steampunk Sam resorts to pedaling after his balloons were confiscated by local authorities.
Party City Stores Raided
FBI agents raided more than 700 Party City stores across the USA on Friday after the Biden Administration learned that most of the balloons sold at Party City Stores are made in China. “It has come to our attention that Party City sells Chinese ‘SPY’ balloons.” Said Karine Jean-Pierre in a press conference. “That makes Party City a threat to national security and possibly guilty of espionage.” Party City officials were not available for comment at press time. However, an anonymous source close to the issue said, “How ridiculous! Party City sells ‘PARTY’ balloons not ‘SPY’ balloons! Besides they buy balloons from non-Communits countries, also.”
An FBI agent was overheard saying, “Too bad Chick-Fil-A, and Mike Lindell don’t sell Chinese spy balloons so we could take them down, also!” Henrietta Haberdasher was walking away from the checkout stand with balloons she purchased for her granddaughter’s birthday party when the FBI used flashbang grenades to break the glass in the doors before storming the store. Ms. Haberdasher commented, “They put on quite a show for much of nothing. Those doors had signs that read ‘Doors to remain unlocked during business hours.’ They took all the balloons I had just purchased. It’s just a stupid excuse for those government sourpusses to keep ‘we the people,” especially kids, from having fun. Now only criminals and law enforcement will have balloons!”
At press time there was a rumor that President Biden was signing an executive order outlawing the possession of balloons, forcing Ronald McDonald, Bozo and Krusty to go into hiding. Sources close to the President said, “We’ll get you clowns!”
They’re coming to get you clowns!
Vincent is a perfect spy balloon.

I laughed! 🙂))))))) Thanks.
I read it out loud to Laurie before posting it, and Søren started laughing and laughing when I was about halfway through. Søren gets satire. Thanks, Susan.
I’m happy you got a laugh out of it.
These photos must have been from the balloon festival? I love the tricycle. That is one fancy rig!
But remember, just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. 😉
No paranoia needed. They are out to get everyone. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Oh Lordy, Tim! Satire is funny when it’s… never mind… This has all ballooned so far out of proportion, it’s beyond ironic.
It’s all about the balloons. Thanks, Dale.
That it is 🙂
Thanks, Cindy. We all need a laugh.
Such is the state of the world right now, it would have been no surprise to discover this wasn’t satire…. Really brilliant satire at that too.
Thanks, Shey. That’s a problem when satire becomes truth.
There’s days I think…nothing would surprise me.
It’s kind of sad when little can surprise us.
Such is the world today eh!
Oh my word, send in the clowns
Is this a news bulletin for real
I’ve been faraway from the news for some time.
Be happy about that. I don’t have a TV, but this stuff just seaps in through the cracks.
A ha ha ha haaaaaaaaa…… though reality isn’t that far off. I could just imagine Steampunk Sam’s balloons actually being confiscated by authorities. You’re lucky the Balloon fest took place before these … the “spy” balloons. Thank you for this, Tim. Smiles are so needed, especially now with humor in danger.
Too many sourpusses in the world these days. Thanks, Marina.
…too many! 😉
Excellent satire! America used to be a fun place to live. Not anymore.
So true. Thanks, Dawn.
🙂 Good stuff, Tim! 🙂
Thanks, Mary Jo.
NOOOOO! Not Krusty! xo
Yep. Poor old Krusty. Them sourpusses are shameless. Thanks, Resa
Funniest clown, ever. Beats Bozo big time!
Yeah. I never liked clowns. Even the happy ones are creepy to me.
You are hilarious, thanks for the laugh Tim! 😂 🎈
You are welcome, Tiffany. We all need a good laugh no and then.
Hi Timothy, I honesty wondered if this might be true for a moment. The world is so weird at the moment almost anything could be believable.
Thanks, Roberta. That’s why I title the satire posts as such. So many bizarre things going on these days, that the most far-fetched satire could be true.
just wait for your hot air balloon event… all hell might break loose.. 🤣
You might be right. Thanks, Cindy.
Let’s hope not! 🎈
good one, made me laugh… almost as much as what is now coming out on the real story. Brother bet me they would call off the search for debris so they wouldn’t have to admit it .. I lost ha.
It’s ared to do satire these days because it’s are d top the bizarre workings of the world these days. Thanks, Brian.
