Blow Up

Oh man, this guy is an official candidate for the Darwin Awards with this dumb stunt. Lefkos Hajji, 28, of London, decided he wanted to propose to his girlfriend, Leanne, by putting a £6,000 diamond engagement ring in a helium balloon. You can guess what happened from there. Yeah, the balloons flew away. "I thought I would give Leanne a pin so I could literally pop the question," Lefkos tried to explain. "I couldn't believe it. I just watched as it went further and further into the air. I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me." HAHAHA PLONKER. According to the Telegraph, Leanne, "as [Lefkos] suspected, was apparently less than impressed." Aw, poor guy. Next time, just put it in a jewelery box, mkay? [Telegraph]
