Man on the Moon (by request)

A true story . . . .

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
reentered 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 have questioned him as to what the “Good luck
Mr Gorsky” statement meant.

A few months ago, (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 finally responded. Mr. Gorsky had finally died and so Neil
Armstrong 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 window.

His neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorksy. As he leaned down to pick it up,
young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky. “Oral sex! You
want oral sex?! You’ll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the
moon!”
