If there’s one thing I’m going to miss about 2008, it probably won’t be my positive 401k balance or even those late-night text messages from Barack Obama. Nope. I’m pretty sure it is going to be one thing and one thing only: the endless hours of balloon-themed entertainment!Yes, 2008 was a year that spanned the inflatable gamut, from weird hot air balloons to people trapping themselves in balloons! From certified balloonologists to balloon-slinging mobs! Are you so excited you could pop? Okay really, enough puns — on to the good stuff! Here are the year’s Top 14 Balloons of the Web!
