"Audio stolen from The Onion" (italics mine) Tells you all you need to know.

I dunno...that's what I would have said if I landed on the Moon!

That was a funny headline. The audio clip is not at all what I imagined it as, though. They're trying to sound like actual astronauts, which the tone of the article clearly isn't. They should sound like raving maniacs in the audio clip.

The Onion is a satiracal "news" site, for those that don't know. :wink:

I still think screaming and cutting his mike would have been the funniest.

Wasn't it Gordon Cooper who during a test pretended to go panic having to climb up the booster and into the Mercury capsule? Something like holding to the door of the transport bus and shouting "Don't put me in there. I don't wanna die!" or something like that. IIRC, Deke Slayton wasn't amused about that stunt.

Yep. Guenter Wendt describes this very incident in his book. At first, Guenter didn't want to go along, but Gordo pushed his buttons and off they went. You are correct, NASA management was NOT happy.
