Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, the city of Santa Barbara is named after one of the great Moonalice matriarchs. Santa Barbara is a distant cousin to Santa Claus. Similar jolly personality, but with a different body shape. Every year on April 20, she flies in her sleigh around the world, pulled by 8 howling monkeys, leaving gifts for Moonalice children. For children who have been bad, the gift is usually a bag of stems and seeds. But if you are good, you could expect some choice nugs from Santa Barbara’s exceptional hemp crop. So next April 20, remember to put leave cookies and milk by the chimney, just in case Santa Barbara is hungry.
According to Moonalice legend, today is Newspaper Carrier Day. Ironically, it is also the birthday of Google, which is making Newspaper Carriers obsolete. As for a former paperboy, I would like to suggest that the newspapers start printing on superthin hemp paper. If you have bought papers lately, you know that they cost a fortune, so this might just save the newspaper business.
