Someone has got some explaining to do.

A giant U.S. surveillance blimp came untethered today around noon and is now floating 16,000 feet over Pennsylvania. Oh, and two F-16s have been deployed to monitor the situation.

The blimp is part of the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Netted Sensor System (JLENS), a radar system used to pick up aerial threats.

But now it has become a threat itself to the good people of Pennsylvania, who are being advised to call 911 if they spot the monstrosity.

And because people on the Internet are horrible, they made some dumb jokes about the blimp.

You can't make this up -- an "America Needs Romney" blimp crash-landed Sunday in a heavily Democratic area of Florida.

Rumor has it that all it needed was more hot air.
