The brain geniuses over at QVC (Quality, Value, Convenience) were displaying a line of weird ugly cardigans when host Shawn Killinger and designer Isaac Mizrahi got into a spirited scientific debate on that age old question - is the moon a star or a planet?
...yes. Seriously. These two grown adults argued whether the moon (which you may know is considered "a moon" or "a satellite") was a star (which it is obviously not) or a planet (which it is also obviously not), and kept going until a production assistant corrected them. Check it out:
If you still can't believe it, or if you want to really dig into the argument these two actual adult humans had, here's the transcript:
It almost kinda looks like what the Earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet Moon -
Yes, I just squinted at it.
From the planet, Moon. From THE Moon, looking back at the Earth.
Yes, from the planet, Moon.
Isn't the Moon a star?
No, the moon is a planet, darling.
The sun is a star - is the Moon really a planet?
The Moon is a planet, honey.
Don't look at me like that - the sun is a star!
It's a planet!
Is the sun not a star?
I don't know what the sun is.
The sun is a star.
We don't know what the sun is.
The sun IS a star....the moon is not a planet.
THE MOON IS A PLANET!
I knew it! You were trying to take me down that road - the moon is NOT a planet
Excuse me? Chunky - if you're listening to me, you have to Google the moon and-

The moon is such a planet, I can't even stand it.
The moon is NOT a planet.
What else is it if it's not a planet?
It's a MOON!
I believe it's a star, or it's something.
It's a MOON. It's a moon.
Didn't you do that thing in grade school where you had to name the planets, and there was Uranis, and there was Saturn, and the one with the rings, and the Earth....the moon is never in there, dude, it's not a planet!
Alright, here look - this is key lime.
I don't know. I don't know what it is beside - what is it - a baseball or something? What is it - cheese? C'mon, it's a planet!
I feel like sometimes - though I AM educated - I expose during the show that this "blonde" of mine....could be real.
Okay it's a satellite.
The moon is what?
A natural satellite.
The moon is a "natural satellite"? What does that mean?
But things live on it, that means it's a planet.
Is that what Google said? No, I don't like that. I don't even know what it means.
The best moments, in no particular order:
And now, to restore just a tiny bit of sanity to your life, here's a cool video of the Moon from NASA:
