While Juggalos Were Destroying Downtown, SNL Was Mocking Them

It was a strange night to be downtown on Saturday as Insane Clown Posse and their truckloads of Faygo terrorized the Rialto Theatre. I happened to be in the Hotel Congress lobby to see a stream of heavily intoxicated Juggalos with remnants of face-paint try to get past the club's security, with one particularly upset individual attempting to throw a potted plant at an employee. [Update: the plant thrower was just a jerk apparently, not a Juggalo.] Plus, there was this addition to a fountain at the new Centro Garage:

Meanwhile, on Saturday Night Live, their running gag of mocking ICP continued with this tribute to the group's YouTube based marketing campaign. It's unfortunate that Columbus Day Assblast is a fictitious event, because it sounds like a pretty good time:
