Apollo 11's Customs Form From the Moon

Thought being an Apollo astronaut was all about exotic travels, ticker tape parades and dinners at the White House? Not even the crew from Apollo 11, the first men on the moon, could skip over the red tape of bureaucracy.  This customs form, signed by Armstrong, Aldrin & Collins upon their return to Earth, is definitely cooler than any customs form you've filled out. 

Flight Routing: Cape Kennedy -->  MOON --> Honolulu, Hawaii
Cargo Declaration: Moon rock & moon dust samples

[Side note: It was in fact all done in good humor, probably during their 21 days of required quarantine after the mission.]
