- I thought Mojo was that little thing that Austin Powers toted around and showed off.
When people says i got my Mojo back, i'd think to myself, how did you lose it and why would you want that back for, it's short and funny looking..
I didn't know what a Mojo is
So i looked up the definition...
n. pl. mo·jos or mo·joes
1. A magic charm or spell.
2. An amulet, often a small flannel bag containing one or more magic items, worn by adherents of hoodoo or voodoo.
3. Personal magnetism; charm.
Also i found this about a Mojo Personality.. an example.. this is about his Mojo..
In addition to being a parody of James Bond, Austin Powers represents an archetype of 1960s Swinging London, with his constant advocacy for free love, his use of obscure impressions and his clothing style (including crushed velvet suits and Beatle boots, which is also a costume George Lazenby's Bond wore). With his flamboyant ways and never-changing dress-sense, he is deliberately made to stick out from his surroundings—though invariably escaping detection when disguised—particularly when he talks about things that would have had no place in the 1990s.
In the many instances he takes off his clothes, he is revealed to have a very hairy chest. Much of his attitude toward relationships could be a parody of Bond's lack of reflection with regard to the loss of a woman. For example, after partner Vanessa Kensington is revealed to be a fembot and explodes on their honeymoon, Austin mourns at first, then joyously exclaims, "Wait a tick. . . that means I'm single again! Oh, behave!" and proceeds to dance through the hotel in the nude. Some of his abilities include a kind of hypnosis he learned from a magician, "a chaste man, who died from a disease that had all the hallmarks of syphilis."
Interestingly, Austin does display a streak of morality dating from this period - he will not make love to a girl (such as Vanessa Kensington after a night in Las Vegas) when she 'is smashed...it's not right'. This morality is not completely ironic, since Austin does not consider other mind-altering drugs to fall under this limitation.
From the original film he lists only two things which scare him: one is nuclear war, the other are "carnies" or "circus folk".
One of the things Austin is best known for is his "mojo." His mojo is the physical representation of his sex drive. It is what gives Austin Powers his legendary sexual prowess and energy. However, without it, he would be rendered impotent.
Do we all have the same kind of Mojo? Is it only connected to sexual drive and/or luck?
Do women have a Mojo?
"Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."
