According to Moonalice legend, Henderson, Nevada was born in the nation’s defense to supply magnesium for the war effort in World War II. After the war, magnesium was no longer required, so the town all but disappeared. In 1947, the government actually put Henderson up for sale as military surplus. It was acquired by Casey Jones Moonalice, who had dreams of running a transcontinental railroad from the arctic circle in Canada to the equator. The goal of the railroad was to redistribute hemp throughout the north American continent. Unfortunately, Casey ran out of money and had to sell Henderson on dBay, which was a predecessor to eBay.
According to Moonalice legend, Henderson is a Place to Call Home. We tried this out before the show and they are right. If you need to call home, Henderson is the place to be.
According to Moonalice legend, April 10 is Henderson Appreciation Day. It’s a day to give thanks for the existence of Henderson, Nevada and all the beautiful who call this place home. For those of you who are uncertain about protocol, we recommend a ritual sacrifice of herbal cylinders.
According to Moonalice legend, on this day in 1912, the Titanic set sail from Southampton. On board that day was Angus McMoonalice, a ship’s carpenter who had helped to build the Titanic. Unfortunately, Angus got dosed at the pre-launch crew party and passed out in a closet. He came to just after the Titanic set sail from Southampton. Fortunately, the ship was due to stop in Queenstown, Ireland to pick up more passengers. Upon seeing the Irish coast, Angus yelled, “Abandon ship!”, lowered a lifeboat and got the heck out of there.
