1 in 10 Kids Thinks Buzz Lightyear Was First Man On The Moon

Who was the first man to walk on the moon? Apparently, 1 out of 10 U.K. schoolchildren thought it was Toy Story‘s Buzz Lightyear, and not Neil Armstrong, who took that first one small step for man, The London Telegraph reported.

OK, so maybe their confusion makes a little sense. After all, the second man to walk on the moon was Buzz Aldrin.

Buzz Aldrin, Buzz Lightyear … easy to get them mixed up, right?

But that doesn’t explain the other answers given by 1,000 primary and secondary school children who had been tested in advance of National Science and Engineering Week. Other candidates given as possible moon men were Sir Richard Branson, cyclist Lance Armstrong and even Star Wars‘ Luke Skywalker.

I’m not going to lie, when first I read the title of this article I couldn’t figure out why Buzz Lightyear was the wrong answer. I just sat at my computer thinking, I’m pretty sure Buzz Lightyear was the first man on the moon. Not sure if I should be admitting that but then again I’m in the elite few, it’s the other 9 out of 10 that are a bunch of losers if you ask me.

I have a serious problem with this question though. First of all, you say Buzz and I think moon, total trick question. Second, Buzz Lightyear is like god to little kids. I dressed up as Buzz Lightyear for Halloween two years ago and I had little kids literally chasing me down Clark Street. I guess it makes sense, because 9 of them loved toy story and the tenth thought I had been on the moon. I just feel kind of bad for that last kid, he probably thinks all you have to do to be an astronaut is drink natty ice and smoke cigarettes, little did he know you also have to be able to take shots of whiskey and be a really good dancer.
