Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, one of the great innovations in Moonalice history did not occur right here in Madison. A graduate student by the name of High Noon Moonalice spent years trying to develop an energy drink that would keep you up for weeks. He conducted experiment after experiment, getting increasingly wired, and increasingly weird. But he never broke the code. In the end, High Noon gave up and became a monkey sheriff who married a Quaker and then killed the bad guys. Hollywood bigotry prevented monkeys from having roles in movies that did not include Ronald Reagan, so Gary Cooper played High Noon in the movie. Chris Shaw’s poster recreates the real story.
According to Moonalice legend, the band went to see the SPAM museum in Minnesota today. It was a religious experience . . . but it also led to a vision! While we were there, Big Steve figured out how to stop the Gulf oil spill! All we have to do is fill the hole with Spam and then cap it with a giant tin can!!!
