According to Moonalice legend, the tribe has participated in every presidential election since the very first one, when noted hemp farmer George Washington was elected. The tribe has learned many things over the years, including this: pit bulls with lipstick make lousy vice presidents.
According to Moonalice legend, Redwood City was home to a Special Judicial Branch of the Moonalice tribe. True to the Tribe’s Confusionist principles, the Special Judicial Branch didn’t know anything about the law, but they knew a lot about baked goods. Formed in 1967 to bring brownies and other comestables to Ken Kesey while he was in the San Mateo County Jail, the Special Judicial Branch returned in 1976 to provide tasty treats to Patty Hearst during her incarceration. For the next 30 years, they had no one to care for, so they ate the brownies themselves. The Special Judicial Branch disbanded when Scott Peterson came to town.
According to Moonalice legend, the tribe doesn’t need help to figure out that Redwood City has a fantastic climate. In a very early demonstration of earmark spending, the US and German governments did a global climate test prior to World War I. The test determined that Redwood City was tied for Best Climate with the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean coast of North Africa. Redwood City jumped on this with its slogan: Climate Best By Government Test. No one is asking us, but the tribe would like to see a similar test for hemp. Hemp Best By Government Test would motivate everyone to get through the current economic struggle. If you agree, please provide samples.
