Neil Armstrong Wishing A “Mr. Gorsky” Good Luck from the Moon-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, is quoted as saying, “Good luck, Mr. Gorsky” during his first lunar walk in 1969 on the Apollo 11 mission. Years later, Mr. Armstrong says that now that Mr. Gorsky is dead, he can tell the real story. He says that when he was a child, he overheard his neighbor, a Mr. Gorsky, being told by his wife that when the kid next door walks on the moon…that’s when Mr. Gorsky will get sex. Some versions say that’s when he’ll get oral sex.
It’s a nifty story, but not true.
Neil Armstrong denied it and NASA transcripts did not include any record that Neil Armstrong made a reference to a Mr. Gorsky during his lunar excursion.
NASA regards the story to as a joke.
