First to space
Today is the 50th anniversary of the flight of the first man to space, Yuri Gagarin, sent there by the Soviet Union. He boldly flew... etc., etc.
To commemorate this, a few jokes:
Russians sent the first man to space. They also sent the first satellite to space, the first dog and the first hot-dog (when the first dog was on the way down).
Russians send the first man to space. A Ukrainian shepherd calls out to another Ukrainian shepherd:
— Russians flew to space!
— All of them?
— No, just one.
— So, why are you bothering me?
Americans spent millions of dollars and decades of research on developing a pen that would work in zero gravity. Russians use pencils.
All jokes aside, when Gagarin came back, he said: "The Earth is very beautiful. Treasure it."
