    I counted 11 fuck/fuckings, but my favourite was the chicken basket linked to some son of man stuff.

    FUCK: what a wonderful fuck fucking clip – ta

    I’m pretty sure this is fake and based on an old Onion article.

  4. schlocktober says:

    Somehow this parody audio really conveys the magnitude of this event. I am moved.

  5. Andrew Singleton says:

    Well who’d have fucking known huh?

  6. winkybb says:

    Yeah, it’s based on an old Onion article. Still as funny as the first time, though.

    Maybe there were more fucking beeps when I rushed home from school age eight to watch the landing on TV. That’s not the way I fucking remember it.

    I didn’t say the moon landing wasn’t real.  I am just saying that word for word, this audio is made from an old edition of The Onion.  Page 113 in the Book, “Our Dumb History” -

    I was about 14 when man landed on the moon.  After watching the coverage on television..past the “That’s one step…”… I went outside and gazed at the half moon and just marveled that there were humans there.

    This audio is obviously bogus…those guys were pros, it was the 60′s, saying fuckin’ this and fuckin’ that wasn’t as classy like it seems to be now.

    FUCKING LOVE IT!! <3 The Onion (& whoever put this together too)!

    Sophomoric.

    There’s a video series called “The Lonely Astronaut,” interviewing one of the astronauts we left on the moon back in 1972.  They’re each about 2 min: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svAQ6BCIgxg

    “Jesus H. Christ in a chicken basket”  

    I nearly pissed my pants.

    We ought discourage the publication of fake material such as this – unless the fact that it is a fake is clearly endorsed on the material for the viewer to see. Free speech may require that such material be permitted; but websites are free not to promote it.

    Giant steps are what you take
    On the fucking moon
    I hope my legs don’t break
    On the fucking moon
    We could walk forever
    On the fucking moon
    We could live together
    On the fucking, on the fucking moon

    There is, of course, the excellent Evolution Control Committee’s take on The Fucking Moon:

    Response to Petzl: Funny. The Jury is out only for people who don’t read, research or critically think correctly. I’ve heard some pretty amazing ideas on how we “faked” the landing, but none of the reasons were good enough to deny the other facts that we did. Sorry, we most likely really did land on it. Give me a crazy piece of evidence of why we didn’t and I’ll tell you the proper rebuttal.  You can’t always just look at two sides of an issue. you have to take the 2nd side’s issue and give it back  to the first side where they then tear it apart.

  23. JudeJackson says:

    What’s the original source of this video? The dialogue at least is from The Onion, and I’ve seen video posted recently on their website with this, but the first time I heard the audio was from Evolution Control Committee.

  24. Don Kaufman says:

    Yes, pretty bogus. Based on the very true statement “there are no atheists in foxholes” I do not believe these folks would have been behaving like this.

    Eagle:  “Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed, lol”
    Houston:  “LOL!”
    Eagle:  “ROTFLMFAO!”

  26. benher says:

    There is no fucking issue, and there is no fucking controversy. Cocking up any and all moon threads with the word “fake” is prohibited under penalty of fucking zero-gravity waterboarding. 

    I’m serious. If anyway ever tries to talk to me in person with one iota of seriousness about helmet reflections and flag wrinkles, I am going to punch them in the fucking throat… maybe once for every Apollo Astronaut.

    Houston, we are all out of F-Bombs.

      Thank you. :) I had the unfortunate “pleasure” of working with a gentleman who was (and still is) convinced that it was all a hoax. I eventually gave up trying to get him to realize he was being a tinfoil hat-wearing idiot.

    This type of post on BB is published periodically to flush all the idiots out into the open in the comments section.  After performing admirably, I think we are good now for another couple of weeks now.

    From Wikipedia (and also recounted, much more wittily, by Tom Wolfe): “The Ancient and Honorable Order of Turtles (“International Association of Turtles”, “Turtle Club”,[1] or similar title) started as an informal “drinking club” between World War II pilots… Once inducted, a member must reply to the question, “Are you a turtle?” with “You bet your sweet ass I am.” Otherwise, the member must buy the questioner a drink…

    During the Mercury-Atlas 8 mission (part of the United States space program), astronaut Wally Schirra was asked by a ground controller whether he was a turtle. Not wanting to use vulgar language while his communications were being broadcast worldwide, he temporarily stopped transmitting while he gave the required response.

    Deke Slayton, a mere 3 minutes into Sigma 7′s flight, came on the radio, which was open for everyone to hear, and asked, “Hey, Wally, are you a turtle?”. Schirra switched his mic from live to record and uttered the appropriate response. On the open line, he said, “Rog.”[4]”

  29. That dialog seems far more likely than the laid back banter that was on the official recordings.

    This is definitely my favorite bit from the Our Dumb Century audio book. “Jesus H. Christ in a chicken basket” has become a common exclamation around my house. 

    The “I Had A Really Weird Dream Last Night” speech from Martin Luther King Jr. is also hilarious.

    Just wanted to post this here, even though I’m a bit late to the party:

    A tip of the hat to not just the staff and crews of the Apollo missions, all of them, but to the a place and time, a people and a government, who thought that space exploration was and is a worthy human endeavor.

    Can’t wait for the anniversary celebration of the Apollo 13 mission. That was truly amazing.
