Billy's Balloon Begets Bovine Brouhaha

CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KHKS (106.1 KISS-FM)/DALLAS APD/MD/night ace BILLY THE KIDD decided to have some fun with the recent "Balloon Kid" controversy by launching a gaggle of 32 silver colored balloons into the TEXAS sky with a cutout photo of himself attached ... and an offer of $1,000 to the person who found the photo.
As the hours went by with no response, BILLY was beginning to believe that perhaps the balloon promotion was a bust, so to speak, when he was summoned by the receptionist to field a call from an angry rancher. Seems that BILLY's balloon scared the crap out of the guy's cows when it landed on his ranch in STOCKPORT.
A quick GOOGLE search revealed that STOCKPORT, TX was approximately 100 miles from DALLAS, so BILLY attempted to appease the guy by inviting him down to pick up his check. The rancher, still angry, said it wasn't worth it ... turns out he's in STOCKPORT, IOWA, over 700 miles away!
Ever the good sport, BILLY's gonna mail the check.
