apollo project

Discussion in 'Grasscity Forum Humor' started by chill out, Jan 21, 2004.

  1. When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project, it took the astronauts
    to a Navajo reservation in Arizona for training. One day, a Navajo
    elder and his son came across the space crew walking among the rocks.
    The elder, who spoke only Navajo, asked a question. His son translated
    for the NASA people: "What are these guys in the big suits doing?" One
    of the astronauts said that they were practicing for a trip to the moon.
    When his son relayed this comment, the Navajo elder got all excited and
    asked if it would be possible to give to the astronauts a message to
    deliver to the moon.
    Recognizing a promotional opportunity when he saw one, a NASA official
    accompanying the astronauts said, "Why certainly!" and told an
    underling to get a tape recorder. The Navajo elder's comments into the
    microphone were brief. The NASA official asked the son if he would
    translate what his father had said. The son, laughing uproariously,
    refused to.
    So the NASA people took the tape to a nearby Navajo village and played
    it for other members of the tribe. They too laughed long and loudly
    but also refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.
    Finally, an official government translator was summoned. After he
    finally stopped laughing the translator relayed the message
    "Watch out for these assholes - they have come to steal your land."
