MOCKS-ee, n.
Having moxie means having enough cleverness, skill, creativity, fortitude and cajones to solve (or, at least, to get out of) a difficult and personally threatening situation.

Originally a Yiddish word, popularized by Moxie soda and the Kingdom of Loathing. The caffienated soda tried to add 'vigor and energy' to the idea of moxie; and KoL invented the adjective (moxious), and made 'moxie' also imply stylishness, accordion skills, and the ability to mix really good drinks.

(Having moxie doesn't always imply that you're the tricksy chutzpah who caused this situation in the first place, but the terms aren't mutually exclusive either.)
Think Anansi, Bre'r Rabbit, Robin Hood, etc.

"Sure, you'd like to burn off his hair in his sleep. But do you have the moxie to get away with it?"

The most brutal soda known to man kind, it has a taste resembling sweetened cough medicine. It is not for the weak, thats probably why only New Englanders get it.
After a tough night of messing up slow pokes in the pit, why not crack open a cool refreshing moxie.

Moxie (mok'see)n. Something or someone posessing the attribute of "coolness" or having "balls." The next word most likely to be stolen by Paris Hilton and then totally played out.

"Impromptu bra-rides in a convertable around Las Vegas are so totally moxie!"
