Today Americans across America are celebrating the 50thanniversary of humanity’s alleged first footsteps on the Moon.

“We’re celebrating the 50thanniversary of perhaps the most historic event in my lifetime, the invention of special effects.” Alex Jones, Chairman of the Flat Earth Society, which has members all around the Globe, told The Rochdale Herald.

“Without the special effects Stanley Kubrik used to fake the moon landings we never would have had films like Star Wars, Aliens or Galaxy Quest.”

“You’ve got to remember too that they managed to do all of that without proper computers. Certainly less processing power than they used to make Toy Story. Amazing.” 

Buzz Aldrin was unavailable for comment.
