to the moon


I love the little eyes poking over the main part of the capsule. I wonder if they were sad that they didn’t get to walk on the moon?


A bugg, wearing an antennae’d helmet against the lack of atmosphere but bizarrely lacking any other sort of protection from the vacuum of space, to say nothing of, oh, I don’t know, an oxygen tank or something, stands on the moon, having just planted a flag for buggkind. Small craters are visible in the foreground, while in the background, another bugg dances in the low gravity. A third bugg (Steve?) waits forlornly in the landing craft, which has antennae, as if there were any doubt.

The text reads: “Buggly 16, 1969: Buggollo 11, the first bugged mission to the moon is launched.”
