The American intended to bring their first man to the moon.
An old Irelander was watching the live show of that event on television at a bar. There was also an English there, he told to the old Irelander: “The American is quite intelligent! The distance from the earth to the moon is very far”.
“Oh, that doesn’t matter’, the Irelander answered, “We are ven going to bring one man to the sun in a few coming months!” The English was surprised: “But the Sun is very hot.”
The Irelander laughed and answered: We are not stupid, you know! We won’t go in the day time, but in the night time, of course!
