Mr. Gorsky and Astronaut Armstrong
Another hoax making it around the internet for many years ( it is a made up joke, but sounds so good, you hope it is real ):
When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" statement but followed it by several remarks, usual com traffic between him, the other astronauts and Mission Control.
Just before he re-entered the lander, however, 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 FL while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong.
This time he responded. Mr. Gorsky had finally died and so Neil felt he could answer the question.
When he was a kid, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit a fly ball which landed in front of his neighbor's bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky.
he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting
"Sex! You want sex?! You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"
