"Good luck, Mr Gorsky!"
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 with several remarks, the usual 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. Just a few years ago, (on July 5, 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 flyball which landed in the front of his neighbor's bedroom window. His neighbors were Mr & Mrs Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, 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!"
Note: This is a confirmed true story.
