Here\'s another example of our ignorance when it comes to our own history. A survey of 1009 people about the Apollo Space Program of the 60\'s and 70\'s asked which two men were the first to walk on the moon. 11 people said it was Buzz Lightyear. Not Buzz Aldrin but BUZZ LIGHTYEAR...the cartoon character from Toy Story
! Another 8 people said the very first man on the moon was Louis Armstrong. Come on, people! Everyone knows it was LANCE Armstrong, right?
Okay, it was Neil.
Here are some other confusions about history.
-Who wrote the Declaration of Independence? George Jefferson, of course.
-Who is the all time home run leader in Major League baseball? Bond...James Bond.
-Benjamin Button discovered electricity when lightning struck his kite.
-Duke Ellington defeated Napoleon Dynamite at the Battle of Waterloo.
-Joe DiMaggio was once married to Marilyn Manson.
-The most important leader in the civil rights movement of the 1960\'s was Rev. Martin Luther Earnhardt, Junior.
-And I think we all remember where we were when we heard that that Russian guy, Leon Trotsky shot John Lennon.
