Someone on twitter has suggested the ground crew dress up as apes to welcome the Astronauts on their return.
"You ain't gonna get off down the trail a mile or two, and go missing your wife or something, like our last cook done, are you?"
"My wife is in hell, where I sent her. She could make good biscuits, but her behavior was terrible."

Guy on the radio was saying that they are shipping a year's worth of supplies to the ISS with this mission, because with the shuttles now retired and who knows what replacing them, Nasa has to use the Russians to get there for the foreseeable future. How the mighty have fallen. :(
