Walter Deemer's Best Joke Of 1995

When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, there was a lot of radio traffic besides his famous "That's one small step for a man -- but a giant leap for mankind" remark. Most of it was routine traffic, barely understandable to those outside NASA, but one of Armstrong's comments proved particularly enigmatic. Just before reentering the lander, he remarked "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

At first, people at NASA thought Armstrong's comment was directed to a fellow Russian cosmonaut. Upon checking, however, they discovered that there was no one named Gorsky in either the Russian or the American space programs. Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong about the puzzling remark, but he would only smile faintly and change the subject.

Recently, in Tampa, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question again. This time, Armstrong replied that Mr. Gorsky had just died, and that he felt that the question could finally be answered.

When Armstrong was a kid, he was playing baseball with his older brother. The ball landed in his neighbor's yard, under their bedroom window. His neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky. As Armstrong leaned down to retrieve the ball, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky: "Oral sex? It's oral sex you want? You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
