When the news broke last week that a Chinese spy balloon was ominously hovering over the continental United States, I was a bit baffled. On one hand, it’s obviously bad when America’s enemies are obviously crossing boundaries they shouldn’t be. On the other, it was so ridiculous and incredibly stupid that it was more funny than anything.
The balloon is now dead in the water (literally) after it was shot down off the coast of Myrtle Beach. The Chinese government claims it was a civilian craft, which is… absurd.
Anyway, the adventures of Chinese Spy Balloon were short-lived, but entertaining nonetheless. I think I’m going to pitch this as a show to Netflix.
