Mojo

前一段时间老看到或听到mojo这个词, 找房子时还看到一家公司叫这名字, 就是不知道啥意思.

今天搜了一下:

So what is a mojo? It is, in short, the staple amulet of African-American hoodoo practice, a flannel bag containing one or more magical items. The word is thought by some to be a corruption of the English word “magic” but it more likely is related to the West African word “mojuba,” meaning a prayer of praise and homage. It is a “prayer in a bag” — a spell you can carry.

原文请见这里.
