According to Moonalice legend, education has always been a high priority for the Moonalice tribe. The traditional tribal arts of playing bass and growing hemp require a certain intellectual rigor. Studies indicate that young tribe members typically struggle in primary and secondary education – quite possibly due to their preoccupation with tribal arts – but they excel at higher education. As a result, we do everything we can to support primary and secondary education, so that every Moonalice child has the opportunity to move on to higher grades.
According to Moonalice legend, today is Defender Day in the state of Maryland. During the War of 1812, the British attacked the city of Baltimore on this day. The locals defended the city effectively, while Francis Scott Key composed the Star Spangled Banner on a ship in the harbor. The legend says that the defenders won because of a massive smoke screen put up by the 420 Moonalice Quartermasters Brigade, whose annual fall barbecue got out of control. Apparently a strong wind blew some coals from the barbecue pit into the hemp warehouse, setting it ablaze. In the smoke and confusion, the British inhaled too deeply, passed out, and lost the battle.
