Take inspiration from the Heene family. When their taste of fame on Wife Swapwasn’t enough, they cooked up one of the most bizarre hoaxes of all time -- pretending their 6-year-old son Falcon was flying away in a runaway helium balloon. Too bad the little boy blew their cover when he admitted it was all "for the show" on CNN. Warning: If you try this tactic, be prepared to face the consequences. The Heenes could be looking at up to six years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
