JuggaloBook: Facebook for the Insane Clown Posse posse
Insane Clown Posse fans get their whoop whoops out on JuggaloBook, a social-networking site for Juggalos and Juggalettes.
Some people are scared of clowns. Some people want to date them. Those people are known as Juggalos, followers of hip-hop music group Insane Clown Posse.
Unless you go around in full-face Juggalo clown makeup all the time, it can be hard to determine who would make a good friend or potential date out in the real world. That's where JuggaloBook comes in.
JuggaloBook is an Insane Clown Posse riff on Facebook. It's all Juggalos (and Juggalettes), all the time.
Instead of friends, you have homies. Rather than liking a post, you get to "Whoop Whoop!" it. Visually, JuggaloBook looks a lot like Facebook, but with way more photos of people in black-and-white facepaint.
The site's total membership is nearing 15,000. As you might imagine, usernames tend to be a little more imaginative than on Facebook. You'll find folks such as "Serial Killa," "SonofSin," and "DarkCarny."
Lest you forget that we're dealing with a bunch of clowns here, you'll also find that political figures like Dick Cheney and Mitt Romney have their own faux profiles on the site. There's just something extra surreal about seeing "Toilet Clown" on Cheney's homies list.
I would like to see the JuggaloBook treatment applied to other music groups. I'm thinking TongueBook for Rolling Stones fans would be a good start. I would totally join up.
