To commemorate the achievement of landing someone on the moon, remove Neil Armstrongs foot just above the ankle and sell it to the highest bidder.

       Selling replicas of the spaceboot as umbrella stands wouldn't be such a bad idea. But not such a good one, either.

       Seems like a plaster imprint would sell, though.

       Wastepaper basket, UB? What a.. waste. We used ours for keeping brollies and cromags in.

       use it to make cute little footprints in the neighbour's wet cement.

       //Seems like a plaster imprint would sell, though.// But the cost of shipping the water and Plaster of Paris to the moon and back would be, well frankly, astronomical. Did the boots come back, or were the suits left in the LEM?
Judging by the video of Apollo 17's return blast-off, I'd guess the original imprints were obliterated anyway.

       UB, do you annotate wet cement too?
po, Mar 31 2005
  

       If in consultation with Dr Armstring (privacy reasons) the entire foot does not seem feasibly removable in lieu of an enormous cash settlement, a toe or two may well suffice.   

       Ornamentally speaking it may hang about the neck sutured at the bloody space stump and attached to a leather or metal chain - dare I suggest the second toe to accompany? Yes.   

       Perhaps a decorative five toe spread may decorate sir's moustache area, dangling on thin wire and resting about the chin area - oh yes sir, very becoming of someone of your stature.   

       Perhaps I could interest you in this fine pair of celebrity buttocks - recently deceased. No sir? Yes sir. I'll wrap the toes at once.

       That would be a perfect umbrella stand to go with my gorilla hand ashtray

       Isn't Neil Armstrong dead?

       i dont think so. i saw him advertising some ab workout machinery just recently.
benfrost, Mar 31 2005
  

       Well, there you go. Dunt need his feet for that, does he?
squeak, Mar 31 2005
  

       Naaaah!. Its a fake.

       Much better idea to preserve his first footprint on the moon. or did Buzz already mess it up with all that lunar bouncing?

       Would like a shrunken version of this instead of the replica beans and toast I have on the end of my keyring. +

       //Kinda like Napoleon's Penis? (see link//
No, silly, from what I've heard of Josephine, Napoleon's penis never went where no man had gone before.

       I think I missed this the first time. A spacey + from me for the laugh alone.
