NASA pulled off the caper of the century. But nothing escapes my intense research and this cartoon showing a missed first take of the moon landing is convensing that the moon landing did indeed take place on a Hollywood backlot. Working on a narrow budget, Armstrong had bragged that he could do the shot in one take. Obviously he screwed up his first line. It actually took 17 takes and at one point, Buzz Aldrin joked that it might have been easier to have actually gone to the moon.
Now if the moon landing was the caper of the century (that would be the 20th century), what is the caper of this century? An early front runner would have to be how Putin pulled off the 2016 US Presidential election against enormous odds. Obviously that was a yuge caper!
I've been doodling for 30+ years but only shared these with family until now, I've also managed to be a dad, a doctor, an engineer, and computer programmer in my grownup life.
