According to Moonalice legend, the tribe had a slang term for anything that is pure in an old school sort of way. They called it, “ornithologically correct”. In the context of hemp, this meant reversing centuries of genetic engineering, working from heirloom seeds, and growing plants that are vintage, if not potent. The term “ornithologically correct” has also been applied to team mascots. The Legend suggests that Mr. Celery and the Philly Phanatic are “ornithologically correct,” while the plush version of the Oriole Bird is, well, you know, a cartoon character.
