Petrified Wood on the Moon!

Because we all know the U. S. Ambassador wouldn't pass off a fake.

The Associated Press: 'Moon rock' in Dutch museum is just petrified wood: "The Dutch national museum says one of its prized possessions, a rock supposedly brought back from the moon by U.S. astronauts, is just a piece of petrified wood.

The museum acquired the rock after the death of a former prime minister, who received it in 1969 from the then-U.S. ambassador during a visit by the Apollo 11 astronauts."

Hat tip to Scott Cupp.
