I was there with my brother... we both kinda looked at
each other and the people around us when he starting in
on the moon landing stuff. The audience was making a
huge effort _not_ to appear shocked... unfortunately
it wasn't working.

I didn't know what to make of it at first... I was hoping
it was some sort of lead-in for a joke... but it wasn't.

Oh well, we all go down hill eventually...

He even had a booklet! ;) We should have taken a picture of the audience
when he started doing that - I betcha everybody had a shocked look on
their faces with their mouths wide open.

When he stayed on topic he was interesting, but when he went off... he
really went off!
