ACCORDING TO THE INSANE CLOWN POSSE, “Juggalos come from all walks of life – from poverty, from rich, from all religions, all colours. It doesn’t matter if you’re born with a silver spoon in your mouth, or a crack rock in your mouth.”
Or they’re former members of the House of Representatives.
Spotted this week in the deserts of Nevada, mining magnate and retired senator Clive Palmer was spotted at the annual Burning Man Festival dressed as a Juggalo – while trying his hardest to not melt in the August heat.
“Since retiring from politics, I’ve had more time to pursue my genuine interests like horrorcore rap and the Juggalo lifestyle,” he said.
“Yeah, it’s definitely been turning heads around here, but I’ve had a pretty fun week out here at Black Rock City,”
“But fuck, it’s been hot, hotter than a cheap suit in Darwin. Been getting the job done, but. I ain’t as good as I once was, but I was good once as I ever was – which is why I’m probably going to give Field Day a miss this year,”
“But for some reason, people have been asking me if I’m selling OxyContin. It might be the makeup, or the fact that I’ve been so dehydrated this week that I’m having trouble stringing sentences together – I don’t know. Whatever, I’ve had a blast.”
Palmer is due to arrive home in Sanctuary Cove later this week.
