Wicked clowns and Nature Boys don't seem to mix.
The "stylin', profilin', limousine ridin', jet flyin', kiss-stealin', wheelin' and dealin' son of a gun" was set to host the Gathering of the Juggalos this past Friday (August 10).
For those of you unlucky enough to not know about the Gathering, allow me to enlighten you...
The Insane Clown Posse - a rap duo from Detroit, MI - host a nearly week-long festival for their fans, known as Juggalos, where music, wrestling and Faygo drinking is the norm.
What are some good things to bring to the Gathering?
A Juggalo in the wild should be prepared. Some things you can pack that might help you out during the weekend include:
*Camping gear (tent, flashlights, sleeping bags, rain gear, etc.)
*Cameras and Video Recorders
*Backpacks and travel bags to carry stuff in
*Bug spray and bug torches
*Cell phones and communicators
*Water bottles and canteens
*Ninja suits, costumes of any kind
You might have heard about it a couple of years back when MySpace star(?) Tila Tequila - seriously, what IS she famous for? - was pelted with all manner of debris by the fans after coming out on stage.
It seems Juggalos care as little for Ric Flair as they do tiny alien-looking women.
"The Nature Boy" was performing his hosting duties - which is insane just to begin with - when a water bottle from the crowd connected with his relatively smooth - at least compared to his rival Dusty Rhodes - forehead.
Flair bounced and refused to take the stage after that.
I guess the silver lining is this article might make it into the dictionary under the word "surreal."
