“MOUR-DE-ZENCLE” is from Alfred Jarry’s "The Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, Pataphysician," derived from the French language of the 16th century (think: Rabelais). “Mour” is “muzzle” or “horse muzzle”, or perhaps in modern terms, “automobile exhaust pipe”; “zencle” is “scythe”, that is: “capitalism”.
The wake of this ship is the desert called “Commonly Accepted Ideas”, unencumbered as it is by any intimation of thought or imagination.
