Neil Armstrong - Funny Story

Neil Armstrong - Funny Story

This is one of the funniest stories I've ever seen--and it's apparently
true.

ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL
ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON. HIS FIRST WORDS
AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT
LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.*BUT
JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK "GOOD
LUCK, MR. GORSKY." MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK
CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT. HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE
WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS .
OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE 'GOOD
LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED.
ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA , WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS
FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION ABOUT
Mr Gorsky TO ARMSTRONG. THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED BECAUSE MR.
GORSKY HAD DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE
QUESTION.
--
HERE IS THE ANSWER TO "WHO WAS MR GORSKY":
--
IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WESTERN TOWN , HE WAS PLAYING
BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD. HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH
LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW. HIS NEIGHBOURS
WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY. AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG
ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY, "SEX! YOU WANT SEX?!
YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"
--
It broke the place up.
NEIL ARMSTRONG'S FAMILY CONFIRMED THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

That was great! I wonder if

That was great!

I wonder if this is one of the fake Internet myths that circulate from time to time. Has anyone verified this to be true?

According to Snopes

this is a fake story. From their report, "Armstrong himself said in late 1995 that he first heard the anecdote delivered as a joke by comedian Buddy Hackett in California."

Still, it's pretty funny.

Very funny.

Thanks for posting.

Humor is no truer in the telling. Just seems so. Same for Apollo

Mr Armstrong was an actor in a Stanley Kubrick spectacular, Apollo. A $5 billion national budget buster. Released 1969.

Mr Armstrong nor any other Apollo actor even got a casting call for the much better film, "2001, A Space Odyssey" 1968.
