everybody is workin’ their mojo now, but when did the first mojo get worked? was it mojorison with the doors, or is this something even farther back than that?

Well, Cecil covered it here:

Personally I’ve been workin’ mine for quite some time.

Jimi Hendrix had some serious mojo, but i think Jim Morison brought it out into the light a lot. As with all cool things, it was African American Blues musicians that created it. They used it and white guys like us warped and stole it from tem. We’re good at that.

Only mojo I recall is stuff I’ve had in the Philippines. Wickedly strong drink which tastes like Kool-Aid.

As Cecil (with uncharacteristic awkwardness, IMO) notes:
Mojo = magic

A Mojo = a magic charm
Comes in handy if somebody tries to put a bad root on you.
