    Another good answer! And funny, too! We all need a good laugh, I think!

    About NASA, we can't really contest their reports, so there probably IS such a thing as a "blue moon"! Interesting! So thank you Bobbie.

    Good answer! I'm glad you felt free to "kid"! This is Hubpages, where we can write what we feel and think (with respect). I had a good laugh! Thanks.

    What an interesting answer! I had not read about any of the two versions before (Kerdon and Garifalia).. Now we need some additional input to define the origin of the expression. So far, the two asnwers are convincing.
