As you probably already know, the Insane Clown Posse’s “Miracles” video turned into a meme for lyrics like, “F*ckin’ magnets, how do they work? And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist. Y’all motherf*ckas lyin’ and gettin’ me pissed.” To help gap this bridge between Juggalos and science, a group of Noisebridgers donned clown makeup and went to an ICP show in San Francisco with helpful signs like “F*cking magnets, how do they work?” and “Ask me about muthaf*king eclipses” (pics and video below), then offered scientific explanations to any interested Juggalos (ICP fans). The Juggalos themselves were having fun with it, but the band’s crew seemed to have a problem:
By several accounts, the Noisebridge members were actually getting along with the Juggalo crowd as they waited outside of the venue, up until a few members of ICP’s roadcrew came out and said the band was none to happy about anyone trying to teach science to their fans. SFSlim tweeted that the group was physically threatened by ICP’s crew and Violent J, one half of the Insane Clown Posse [Ed.- the fat one], even bragged about it on his twitterhole [Ed.- “Corp, Dougie & Sugar Slam ran those scientist haters off”]. A clown with no sense of humor . . . who’d a thunk it? [LaughingSquid]
I think one of the Juggalos summed this whole thing up the best when he said: “I’m drunk. I don’t know what’s going on.”
Wise words, my fine Juggalo.*
