Does anyone remember the picnics the neighborhood bars would have at West Point Park? Bus ride to the park (it seemed like the park was so far away) ride all day on the rides, drink birch beer from barrels, barbecued food, etc. The adults would be drunk on the way home on the bus. The bus ride home made for interesting entertainment.

True or False,u decide:

It seems when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous "One Step for Man", etc. statement, but followed it by several remarks. It ended with "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky." Over the years many people have questioned him as to what the "Mr. Gorsky" statement meant.

Two weeks ago, while answering questions following a speech, he finally responded, since Mr. Gorsky had finally died and so Armstrong felt he could answer. When he was a kid, he was playing ball. His brother hit a fly which landed in front of the Gorsky's bedroom window. As he leaned down to pick it up, he heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky:

"Oral sex, oral sex you want? You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"

Fairmount Prison,who knew:

1924 August 12

Pennsylvania Governor Gifford Pinchot allegedly sentenced Pep "The Cat-Murdering Dog" to a life sentence at Eastern State. Pep allegedly murdered the governorís wifeís cherished cat. Prison records reflect that Pep was assigned an inmate number (no. C2559), which is seen in his mug shot. However, the reason for Pepís incarceration remains a subject of some debate. A newspaper article reported that the governor donated his own dog to the prison to increase inmate morale.
