Two individuals that could benefit from Galilei's controversial theory of heliocentrism are QVC channel host Shawn Killenger and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi.

Both were discovered arguing the finer points of celestial classification while selling what could be the worst-looking shirt this side of the Milky Way.

In the grand scheme of things, the Moon is not necessarily the most important object in the night sky. It is however, the most visible which begs the question: How can you not know?

The video is priceless, the transcript is even better.
