Slicing Warp Space with Occam’s Razor

by Catfish McDaris

Once upon a time people walked on the moon
they picked up some rocks they planted some
flags they drove a buggy around then came back
Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon

The United States grew so eager to defeat the
Soviets in the intensely competitive 1960s
space race they faked all 11 Apollo missions
it was all a hoax, the evidence is countless
42 years since last man ever "moonwalked”

Air bubbles coming out of space suits in "space"
let’s call it space giant underwater pool one
located in US and one in Russia use of blue
screen in NASA’s "broadcast" from space.
not a SINGLE photo contains a SINGLE star

When shot from the moon Earth scale compared
to the moon is wrong in all photos moon as smaller
body should look larger there is NO REAL image
taken of planet earth all are composite images

Astronauts bounce like magic or puppets an
astronaut has his finger exposed were in space
that will produce severe frost bite the landing
was recorded from a monitor to fuzzy up images

To hide cables or other mistakes during the staged
landing NASA is a large money laundering scam
why haven’ t we been back Porterhouse just
listened he had a UFO in his garage and a VW

Someday you hoaxers will do better research,
what about the phone call to Richard Nixon?
