The week before a space launch, an astronaut tries to relax at an out-of-the-way pub. Unfortunately the bartender recognizes him and says, “You fellows at NASA think you’re something, going to the moon. But we’ve got a couple guys here who’ve been building their own spaceship out back.”
Reluctantly, the astronaut goes outside to look – the spaceship is a mess of beer bottles, cans and junk. “We’re planning to go to the sun,” boasts one of the spaceship builders.
“This thing will be incinerated before you can get close to the sun,” the astronaut warns.
“We got that all figured out – we’re going at night!”
