"good Luck, Mr. Gorsky!"

FORCES - The Humorous


When Apollo mission astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, henot only gave his famous "one small step for man, one large leap formankind" statement, but he followed it by several remarks, usually comtraffic between himself, the other astronauts, and Mission Control.Justbefore he reentered the lunar module, however, he made the enigmatic remark, "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rivalSoviet cosmonaut.However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in eitherthe Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many peoplequestioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck, mr. Gorsky" statementmeant, but Armstrong always just smiled.

Just last year (on 5 July 1995 in Tampa Bay, FL) while answering questionsfollowing a speech, a reporter brought up the 26-year old question.Thistime, Armstrong finally responded.Mr. Gorsky had finally died and soArmstrong 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 that landed in front of his neighbour'sbedroom windows.His neighbours were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky.As he leaneddown to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting atMr. Gorsky, "Oral sex"You want oral sex"You'll get oral sex when thekid next door walks on the moon."
