Apparently our tribe furnished the paper for exam books. Naturally it was hemp paper. The university liked the paper. They were less comfortable with the bag of hemp buds that came with it. According to Moonalice legend, today is the 27th anniversary of the Pine Tar Incident, wherein the great 3rd bassman George Brett hit a home run with a bat that was subsequently ruled to have excessive pine tar on it. On hearing the news, George threw one of the great hissy fits in the history of baseball. The whole thing could have been avoided had George only listened to our advice: use hash oil instead of pine tar. It works better and umpires can’t resist it. According to Moonalice legend, today is the 99th anniversary of Hiram Bingham’s rediscovery of Machu Pichu. M301 Listen to this show now at Moonalice.com.
