Where did the World’s Only Apollo Astronaut Buzz Aldrin show up this week? He was seen hanging out with his bro Shia LaBeouf at the Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiere last night. He was also seen gettin’ down with some blonde “news reporter” who was wearing blue suede stripper shoes (but they were probably really superior stripper shoes, not like the $12.99 ones you can buy at Burlington Coat Factory). From the heavens, an ethereal Jack Swigert shouted out from the window of his Eternal Corvette, “DON’T DO IT BUZZ.”
Meanwhile, Frank Borman was probably sitting somewhere reading this story on The Daily Mail online while lighting his cigars with $100 bills with a smug look on his face. Neil Armstrong and Mike Collins were not available for comment.
