Some of you are busy arguing about whether Jay and Beyonce are on the rocks. Some of you are up in arms about whether Nicki Minaj’s thong is going to end up getting your daughter pregnant. Some of you are mad at Childish Gambino for acting like a rapper by trash talking the competition during his rap concert. I’m mad that folks are so busy being mad at Stephen A. Smith for saying some really dumb shxt about women “provoking” domestic violence…that they’re distracted from the larger issue, that the NFL punished Ray Rice less for knocking out his (then) fiancee than if he had been caught smoking weed or selling his autograph before going pro.

According to the Riverfront Times (via MTV’s David Dean), the husky fellow killin’ it at the Gathering Of the Juggalos is named Big LA, and he’s part of an Orlando-based “party organization” run by Gary Busey’s nephew. Makes sense, sure.
Even Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul, a man who has probably seen many strange things, seemed impressed. I wonder if he ever saw that incredible 2009 SNL Juggalo spoof before accepting this gig.
I’m sorry. And you’re welcome.
If you’re still here, and okay, there was some more fascinating man-on-the-scene reports from the Gathering over at the St. Louis-based Riverfront Times.

“Bring me a poop dollar. It don’t gotta be your poop; there is poop all over these grounds. Go find some.”
Amazing acts of reportage.
