Possibly the finest headline this week:

Balloon Pilot Blames Wind For Radio Tower Crash
I don't know why, but it just struck me as funny, given that hot air balloons travel by wind...
It was from a report on the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta which ended with a bang as the "Smokey the Bear" balloon got wrapped around the top of a 670ft AM radio tower. The 4 passengers in the gondola were safely retrieved but they had to climb about 500ft down to meet the rescue crew coming up the other way.
