Throwback Thursday: Buzz Aldrin Delivers a Haymaker

I imagine it’s incredibly frustrating to walk on the moon and return home to a bunch of conspiracy theorist losers questioning whether or not your greatest accomplishment, and one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of mankind, even took place. Alas, one of the pains that comes with freedom: In America, fat dudes rocking the Jerry Seinfeld (white tennis shoes, jeans, t-shirt and jacket) can approach you on the street and call you “a coward, and a liar, and a thief.” It’s up to you to determine an appropriate response.

“Do you think you can get to heaven without repenting? Why don’t you swear on the bible that you walked on the moon?”

What is this guy, five years old? Swear on the bible you walked on the moon? Douche.

I think I speak for all real Americans in saying Buzz Aldrin handled this situation as well as anyone could have. He tried to walk away and give this Bart Sibrel character a chance to escape unscathed, but the fat geed repeatedly insisted Mr. Aldrin’s fist go on a date with his saggy face. So, Buzz did his duty as an American moonwalking badass, and delivered a 72-year-old right hand of justice right to his kisser.

Rewind the video to just before Buzz does the one-man fisticuffs dance and check out the reaction of Buzz’s lady friend in yellow. As the portly interviewer launches his verbal assault, she gets this look on her face like, “Uh oh, now you fucked up.” Then she ceases to restrain Mr. Aldrin and walks away. Priceless.
