The Man on the Moon was aware of all the people who lived on Earth. The Man on the Moon is an astronaut who used to fly around the Earth.  


The alderman responded that Norwich was a wonderful place, and it was celebrated for its pleasant porridge, and after saying that, he disappeared.

He also used red-hot fire coals to cool the water in a pitcher. He continued his journey to the ground as he sat by his ice-cold fire, and at last, he concluded that the only way to get there was to slide down a moonbeam. 


He then went to the moon's edge and started looking for a good, powerful moonbeam.  He swung himself over the edge of the moon, wrapped his arms tightly around the moonbeam, and then went down.


As a result, just before he reached the ground, he fell into a river.  


The Man in the Moon asked a farmer if he could help him find his way to Norwich. He decided to follow the alderman's advice and go to Norwich so that he might taste some of the porridge.


The Man responded that he would like to have a cold plate of porridge. He then had a spoonful of chilly porridge in his mouth as he was very hungry. That porridge was cold to people on earth.

The magistrate asked the Man in the Moon his name.  Then the magistrate said him that he might be a man but he wasn’t on the moon. He was in Norwich. Then the man said that the food burned his mouth when a woman gave him some chilly porridge.  


The magistrate gave him a startled look and said to take him to the asylum. The Man had told him that hot on Earth was cold on the moon, and vice versa.


I don't like this earth of yours at all, so I'd prefer to return to the Moon, the Man told him. It gets too warm at night, and it's too cold in the middle of the day, said the magistrate. A judge asked an astronomer how to get the Man from the Moon back to Earth.
