They all survived the launch. Details are sketchy about the ensuing explosion and crash

Slow down, tubby! You're not on the moon yet!
 
2007-06-03 12:18:05 PM  
What you saw was Venus reflected off of some swamp gas and backlit by a streetlight.

2007-06-03 12:31:50 PM  
So where did they bury the survivors?
 
2007-06-03 12:32:27 PM  
Harder than ever before?

crazylegsbill: //War in Iraq is now: WAR IN SPACE!

Can we change the War on Terror to the War on Space? Space doesn't shoot back or rig home-made explosives.

tooll: "So where did they bury the survivors?"

Well they.....oh no you don't!!
I had to bury those darn survivors 4 times before they would stay in the hole!!!

Nuke 'em from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Oh yeah? Tell that to the dinosaurs.

No, no. It's Ben Dover and Phil McCracken.

solistus: Oh yeah? Tell that to the dinosaurs.

Blast, you're right. Space could kick our asses. What good are snub fighters going to be against that?

Looks like the arrival of our Astro-men will be delayed. Thank goodness the moon belongs to America.

The submitter and the original poster got it wrong. It seems to be some sort of massive anal probe device.

That was no moon... no wait, wrong reference...

This is but the first shot, in our glorious war of independence from the Federation!

We're whalers on the moon
We carry a harpoon
But there ain't no whales
So we tell tall tales
And sing the whaling tune

WayneBuckwheat: You people are screwed up. That was a death ray from Uranus.

1. FTFY.

2. You better get that out of your system before they change the name to Urrectum in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all.

Is that alien smoking a J?
