MolyX-42 Entry in Elvia’s "Farm Animal" Moly

I’m happy to report, I’ve completed my entry in Elvia’s Moly for MolyX-42. It took me a while to commit to my idea for this moly because the very first idea that popped into my head had nothing to do with animals…sort of. Finally I couldn’t help but move forward because the original idea would not be dislodged from my brain.

As I was working along, a light bulb went off above my head (it’s very startling when that happens). So I took a break and made an ATC for the back pocket. I felt better that I’d fulfilled (in a way) her request for farm animals.

The text reads:

“Where are the farm animals?” you ask. Don’t you see them—as plain as the nose on your face?

I’m talking about the mugwhomps, of course. Actually, it’s a small squad of military mugwhomps in a split and stagger formation.

My dad told me all about mugwhomps when I was only 6 or 7 years old, and frankly, I’m surprised your dad didn’t tell you.

Mugwhomps are the police/military corps of the farm yard/field. They protect and organize the farm animals. You’ll frequently
see cows reporting to the mugwhomps when they go out for exercise. And you’ll often see animals taking shelter near the mugwhomp formation.

My dad didn’t tell me this specifically, but I suspect they do a great deal of training with the Buckingham Palace Guards—they are similarly unflappable in their duty.

I had a very entertaining childhood…slightly confusing…but very entertaining. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. During the same trip I also learned about rockwart. You know, the wallpaper \”they\” put up on the hillsides along the highways in Pennsylvania. Rockwart looks a lot like real rock, but don\’t you be fooled.:-D
