Containing Multitudes Since 2004
A lot of us first encountered "Moxie" in the pages of MAD, where it was ubiquitous for a while.
Yep, me too. And later in Harvard Lampoon's Bored of the Rings (where the hobbits Merry and Pippin were rechristened Moxie and Pepsi).In fact, the first Moxie reference I can recall seeing was in MAD's parody of The Sting, but I can also recall the logo popping up in (I think) Wally Wood's Joe Palooka parody, on the side of a boxing ring, which I saw in one of their '70s deluxe reprint issues.
Thanhks for the photo.I enjoy a great big, vibrant city full of horses and horseshit.Streetcars abound, but I see not one other motorized vehicle [although on the right-hand kerb of 10th street, someone's loading a vehicle that looks like a modern panel truck. Time travel? Methinks not. . .].The horses are gone, but the horseshit remains.Gahd I love that city -- then and now!
