It's that time of the year again, the time in which Insane Clown Posse have released their homespun infomercial for the horrorcore duo's annual Gathering of the Juggalos, held this year from August 7 through the 11.
Last night on The Simpsons, four Moe's Tavern regulars won the Springfield Lottery, a $200,000 prize to be split among Homer, Lenny, Carl, and Moe—except that Carl disappeared with the winning ticket. As they searched Carlson's apartment for clues, Moe wished his former friend a particularly unlovely fate, which you can see in the above clip: death by urinal at the Gathering of the Juggalos.
A few years ago, a talented actress and musical genius named Tila Tequila was invited to a clown festival in the Midwestern woods, to perform with some Ringling Brothers gigolos.

The 13th annual Gathering of the Juggalos is underway in Cave-in-Rock, Ill., this weekend, and the ninjas are not fucking around this year: Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, the godfathers of the Juggalo movement and the duo that comprises the Insane Clown Posse, reportedly sat everyone down in the seminar tent this afternoon to announce that they're taking legal action against the FBI.
