We're sure most of you already keep abreast of the latest Juggalo news, so you don't need us to tell you, but for those of you not in the know, here goes: The Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI. Or at least they've announced plans to sue the FBI. What's tracking their wacky clown makeup with such litigious tears? Turns out the feds keep a state-by-state database of known gangs and, for some reason, the Juggalos made the list.
For some reason.
Seeing fans of a band whose trademark fashion statement is clown makeup on a list of known gangs was definitely a surprise, but the fun doesn't end there.
The entire reason this came to light is because the FBI's list hit the front page of Reddit after it was made public. So, for once, it wasn't just the Juggalos doing all the reading. We got to check it out, too, and we couldn't help but notice something surprising.
There are a lot of things street gangs are great at: inventing dances that play as well in crime-ridden neighborhoods as they do at Wimbledon, for example. But when it comes to picking an appropriately menacing moniker for their group, things don't always pan out so well.
