Choose wisely!

I ran across this news story a couple of days ago: http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080314/od_nm/engagement_dc

If the link fails to work at some point, know this: A man wanted to propose to his girlfriend. He wanted to "pop the question." So, he buys a ridiculously expensive ring, puts it in a balloon filled with helium, and plans to pop the balloon as he asks the questions. Then as he is walking out of the store, he loses his grip on the precious balloon and has to watch, helplessly, as a small fortune rises into the heavens. Needless to say, he never recovered it. His girlfriend was furious and demanded he buy her a new ring. Two observations.

1) DUMP HER!
2) Since he's not too bright anyway, she should probably dump him too.

Or, maybe I've got this all wrong, and they deserve each other...

Nice.

Yea, not the best proposal idea.

I don't even think it's worth the pun. I'm sure that's what his fiance wants, the sound of a bursting helium balloon associated with the moment she agreed to marry him.

Who knows, maybe exploding rubber shrapnel whizzing by your head says "I love you" in England. Brits have always been a litle off, you know? Two words prove my point: British Television.
