The Nine Most Bizzare Moments In Juggalo History

Posted By on Wed, Aug 17, 2011 at 8:54 AM

Last week, as they do once a year, fans of Detroit hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse converged on Cave-in-Rock, Illinois (160 miles southeast of St. Louis) for the Gathering of the Juggalos. It's a time when fans of the band and their Psychopathic Records label mates convene for music, fellowship, enjoying nature, and ICPing it up.

Things tend to get a little out of hand. This year, the Juggalos were a bit rude (though not uncharacteristically so) to their master of ceremonies, Charlie Sheen, pelting him with crap. Which is pretty much what most of America has wanted to do since last spring. Bravo, Juggalos, for having the balls to do what everyone else hasn't had the guts to do. The Juggalo antics aren't always so cathartic, however.

9. A decade ago, they scared the fuck out of Bill O'Reilly by making some rather good points about child-rearing.

8. For the Juggalo who wants an athletic outlet for his anger, there's Juggalo Championship Wrestling. Which is totally real.

7. The parents and grandparents of the happy couple were so proud at this Juggalo wedding.

6. A preacher in Wichita, Kansas ministers to Juggalos, but doesn't explain how fucking magnets work. No word on if the three members of Westboro Baptist Church were picketing across the street.

5. Back in the good old days of really shitty talk shows, Jenny Jones explored the living conditions and hygiene habits of one Juggalo.
