One moment: The balloon goodbye

We interrupt the steady drumbeat of depressing news for this message: It’s not all bad out there.

Lucas Jatoba, an advertising executive, was leaving fond memories behind when he moved from Barcelona to Australia, so he sent seven balloons aloft with tickets to a play. Then, when a business heard about it, it donated 250 more and he repeated the stunt.

The event was reported by the blog, mUmBrella, which also featured one of the funniest comments reacting to the story:

“That’s nice. When I left London, I went out and got absolutely wankered, vomitted in a cab, then again on Battersea Bridge. Not really the same is it?”
