Fancy Restaurant Offers Edible Helium Balloons

Seen here the exact moment he realizes they replaced the helium with nerve gas, a man huffs an edible dessert balloon at Alinea in Chicago. You know, because that's a real thing now. God, whatever happened to f***ing cake? First of all, a regular rubber balloon is also edible provided you don't mind blowing it up with your b-hole the day after and scaring yourself off the shitter when it explodes. Secondly, you remember those funny-smelling balloons you used to make with a little straw and the goo in the metal tube? I used to eat those all the time. But enough bragging, I have a voice so deep it would take a balloon the size of a Macy's Thanksgiving Day float to make me sound like a regular man. 'God voice' they like to call me. "Nobody calls you that." Start now?

Hit the jump for a video of the balloon being made and consumed.

Thanks to Mih0, who's cool with a piece of apple cobbler.
