Headline from The Onion
compendium (Our Dumb Century
), concerning the Moon landing
Also memorable for the (not really) Neil Armstrong quote :
Holy Living Fuck!
Which is, I feel, much better than all that "giant leap for man" stuff. It's short, simple, and more importantly it captures the spirit of the moment.
Picture the scene - you've just set foot on the moon, the entire population of the Earth is hanging on your every word. Do you recite a poignant and memorable speech that The Man made you learn, or forget your professionalism and bellow "Holy living fuck!" at the top of your lungs, safe in the knowledge that billions of parents would disapprove?
You know it makes sense.
