And Thus The Internet Says Goodbye To The Insane Clown Posse

Over the weekend, the Insane Clown Posse released a music video for their latest single (sure, single, this thing is everywhere!), Juggalo Island. You can watch the video after the jump, but first, please join me in saying goodbye to the Insane Clown Posse. Goodbye! It has been quite a year, and a lot has happened since the Internet first met the Juggalos last July. We have raised our children, and made peace with the maggots. The Juggalos have appeared on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Law & Order, and been interviewed by Martin Bashir. The Insane Clown Posse launched the successful musical careers of new artists, made riveting feature films, and founded their own News Network. We have shared in highs and we have shared in lows. And now we say goodbye. Goodbye to all of that. The Juggalos want to go live on an island of their own, and dip their balls in the water, and I say that we should let them. BON VOYAGE!

It has been fun. Although let’s be honest: it hasn’t been THAT fun. Despite the clown make up and the seeming hunger to fuel the joke fire, it is important to remember that Juggalo culture is ultimately founded less on the “family” principles they so commonly espouse, and more on the principles of being terrible, violent, misogynistic, homophobic, racist assholes. Yuck. And boo. I give them all one month on Juggalo Island before everyone is dead. Oh well. R.I.P.
