I.C.P. – Not Merely Insane, But Deeply Opposed To Science, Too

Posted in Free Expression at 4:58 pm by

As Insane Clown Posse continue their evolution from cult-level laughing stock to full scale mainstream meme/laughing stock, CSTB contributor David Roth considers the lineup for this summer’s Gathering Of The Juggalos (this time featuring CSTB commentary fave Gallagher) and concludes, “there is nothing to do about it. It simply is, and the fact of its existence is challenging enough.” Thankfully, that sort of defeatist attitude is not shared by the folks at SF tech/science think tank Nosebridge, who recently attended an area ICP gig in an attempt to tutor juggalos who might find basic science a bit confusing. Sadly, this noble effort did not guarantee a happy ending, as the following excerpted post from Laughing Squid.com details :

Armed with lab coats and poster-boards, these clown scientists were set to explain the science behind butterflies, Faygo, and, of course, motherfucking magnets. 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, even bragged about it on his twitterhole.
