So, we all know about the Insane Clown Posse, yeah?
Just in case you're not privy to the goings on of ICP and the subculture of their fans, here's what you need to know. The Insane Clown Posse is a musical act comprised of two members, "Violent J" and "Shaggy 2 Dope." Yes, really.
Check out one of their videos here. <---(The language is NSFW.)
They have a relatively large following of extremely loyal fans called Juggalos, who paint their faces for concerts, attend an annual festival known as the Gathering of the Juggalos, and typically participate in the relatively unmonitored exchange of sex and drugs in public.
These folks are also looking for love, though, and someone has curated a collection of Juggalo profiles from OkCupid. The resulting OkCupid Juggalos Tumblr is as wonderful as you might imagine and features quotes like:
- "I'm the downest Juggalo ever"
- "Politically active Juggalo, seeking same"
- "i'm amazing when it comes to sex."
- "I'm super eclectic (thanks to my boy Steve for teaching me that word lol)"
If you're interested in learning more about the Juggalo culture, I suggest you check out Emma Carmichael's wonderful undercover examination of the Gathering of the Juggalos. Carmichael—who recently took over at The Hairpin (congrats!)—attended the annual meeting of the ICP fans for Deadspin back in 2011. Her piece will explain to you in great detail the function of the drug bridge, the purpose of the Lost Ninja Clan, and the use of face paint as a defense mechanism and/or means of expediting the acclimation process.
