"Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."
With the recent 50th anniversary of the moon landing, you might have heard the rehashing of this story. "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" might have been the first line uttered by Neal Armstrong on the moon, but "Mr. Gorsky" supposedly followed.
As the story goes, when Armstrong was a kid, he was playing baseball and the ball landed in his neighbor's backyard. When he went to get it, he overheard his Jewish neighbor, Mrs. Gorsky, shout at her husband: "Oral sex? Oral sex you want? You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!" Scene.
Well, not exactly. Mr. Gorsky is a tall tale (sometime he is Mr. Leibowitz, sometimes he is Mr. Klein). No Jewy name appears in Armstrong's transcripts. In fact, he himself said that he first heard it in 1995... as delivered by comedian Buddy Hackett.
Buddy Hackett: a real Jew. Mr. Gorsky: Jew, but not real...
