If you think people who are super smart and know a lot about science and astrophysics and all of that can’t also be funny, think again – because someone at NASA gave a guy who makes his living as a comedian a run for his money in the humor department.
Who knows whether comedian Alex Falcone really had a dream of working for NASA or whether he might have been looking for material for his act, but either way, he decided to apply for a job he was (like most of us) unqualified for.
A short while later, he received a rejection letter that really was one for the record books.
The letter began by telling Alex he was not being considered, but that they felt some of the questions raised in his application deserved a personal response.
Watching Master of the Universe does not, in fact, count as having a Master’s Degree.
In case you were wondering.
Also insulting your high school chemistry teacher is not the way to go when trying to get in good with a bunch of scientists.
Seriously, it’s not.
Are there applications for pirates?
Because I would be interested (and definitely more qualified for that life than astronaut life.
Were they good reasons, though?
You have to shoot your shot, I guess?
I feel this deep in my soul.
The food is the most important part of anywhere you’re going.
I really hope they’re serious about this.
It’s a gift to all of us, really.
Just covering the basics here!
I kind of like the suggested name change…
Yes, please do be safe out there.
Alex may not be qualified to be an astronaut, but this astronaut is totally qualified to be a comedian.
Seriously, when is his stand up special airing, because I’m definitely tuning in!
