Rocket City Rednecks: Slingshot Into Orbit

Some people think that slingshots could be used to launch things into space. The Rednecks experiment with the physics of slingshots and trebuchets, then rig a "Super-treb" with a pulley system and weather balloons... It looks more like a massive slingshot than a launch vehicle. Will it have enough force to fire a missile?
