This is a special Sunday post because this was too good to keep it to myself. I found this through a random friend-request via MySpace from a guy who was an unabashed Juggalo. This essay was written by his girlfriend who, as you will learn, is down with the clown 4 life. What is printed below is exactly how it was written. Nothing has been changed.
(Note: none of the photos reproduced here are of the person who wrote this. They were all easily found via the Interweb.)
What is a Juggalo? Many people often believe that Juggalos & Juggalettes are just another name for fans of Insane Clown Posse. Being a Juggalo is much more than liking the music; it is a way of life. A fan is someone who only likes the music either because it’s the fad right now, or because they want to conform. Fans don’t see the true message of the music, just the outer layer. Fans are quick to forget you as soon as the next big sensation comes along. They also will hound ICP for autographs and see them only as big famous stars. A Juggalo is one who lives their life by the hatchet. In other words, they believe in the true meaning behind ICP’s songs try to live by J and Shaggy’s preachings. Juggalos are down with the clown for life, and will never turn their back on ICP because they are said to be “uncool.” A Juggalo will always have another’s back, and speak their piece no matter how harsh. If a Juggalo ever came face to face with ICP, they’d see them as another Juggalo not something rare and famous. They wouldn’t instantly whip out the autograph collection, but treat them as one of their own. A Juggalo knows the Dark Carnival is about God. When it was revealed in the Shangri-La album, some Juggalos turned their back on ICP. Of course now that means, only the true Juggalos remain. They are dedicated to Psychopathic forever whats up my names mindy im a juggalette.illv been down for about six years.i gradually gotten into the dark carnival over the years,but still has always been down.ill be down with the clown for life nigga.hell yeay now thats what im talking about,ya dig.juggalette for life straight up.i currently have black hair, blue eyes, 5’3. im very easily inspired by music and art work. im a very nice but bitchy person who every body loves.lol. you know you do dont lie.
