BoingBoing on Drunk Astronauts

My favorite website, BoingBoing, has made a big mistake by naming Homer Simpson “Drunk Astronaut Pioneer”. That is a big mistake, since the pioneer of them all is nobody except Captain Archibald Haddock.

Captain Haddock, drunk in space

In the Explorers on the Moon (On a marché sur la Lune) book of series The Adventures of Tintin, Captain Haddock sneaks some bottles of Whisky and gets drunk in space. Since this book was published in 1954, there would be no doubt that Homer Simpson is not even in the game.
