The Moon: unreachable?

It was fifty years ago this week, that NASA sent a manned rocket to the Moon, or so they claimed. When Neil Armstrong stepped onto the lunar surface, he should have drowned in soft cheese. Instead, he calmly said the line, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for manchego."

Yet audiences were not so easily fooled. Viewers of Doctor Who noticed that the rocket used to land on the Moon was identical to that used in the episode "Invasion of the Daleks". Also, several Daleks could be observed in the background of the Moon, a problem NASA dismisses as "left over space junk".

Despite all the evidence, many still believe that NASA landed a man on the so-called Moon. Yet, how can man fly to the Moon when it doesn't exist. Recent studies at the Universite De Nile in Egypt have found that the Moon often doesn't appear in the sky, indicating that it doesn't really exist.

Spokesman Geoff Bollocks said, "The Moon doesn't exist, and even if it did, then it wouldn't be possible to land on it, because it's made of cheese. The Moon landings are obviously a hoax. And even if they're not, then they can't be true because I don't believe it."

Another reason to believe the Moon landings were faked is that the human body cannot survive in a vacuum. Bollocks continued, "The human anus will naturally felch out its contents in a vacuum. We did not see this happen on the Moon, giving further evidence that it didn't happen. The Moon set was actually built in Borehamwood, which also doesn't exist."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
