Icewagon Flu, where did this name come from?

Back in the days when the icebox was the best form of refrigeration, icemen would deliver large blocks ice in horse-drawn wagons. Chunks of ice were placed in the icebox which became the predecessor to the modern day refrigerator. The good-neighbored iceman would supply his frozen goods with a grin on his face and an outstretched hand. Often the unassuming civil servant, would receive an extra “tip” from lonely housewives. And the telltale sign of their secret tryst was a nasty case of “icewagon flu.”"Icewagon Flu plays fast and loose with the traditional songs of our culture, with marvelous results. Nancy Whiskey goes under the sonic knife as a boozy bar maid and emerges as a Riot Grrrl, thanks to crunchy alt-rock guitars and slurred vocal. Fields of Athenrysounds like something REM might chance---should we re-christen it 'Fields of Athens, GA?' Waxie's Darglehas a funky jam-band beat interspersed with pipes and flutes! Imagine that! Off the Wagon takes these beloved tunes into a back alley, roughs them up, and makes them into modern rock gems.
