If you thought (or hoped, depending) that public fascination with Insane Clown Posse had run its course, you would be gravely mistaken. Nevermind that strangely coincidental timing of Lou Reed/Metallica Lulu monstrosity somehow made Jack White’s collaboration with Insane Clown Posse far more palatable–at least the latter was meant to be funny–Saturday Night Live once again spoofed ICP’s infamous infomercials this past weekend. This time, writers Michael O’Brien and Colin Jost invented the Columbus Day ASSBLAST, another Gathering of the Juggalos-like festival with “preformances” (Psychopathic’s never been known for its excellent spelling) from fittingly named acts like Sploik, Baby Nutsack, MC Hammertoe. Planned activities include: Play Farmville with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed! “Show your little-ass boobs to an old guy”! And “get high and cry”!
Sorry guys, this meme isn’t going away anytime soon. Especially since Insane Clown Posse headline the Hammerstein Ballroom two weeks from tomorrow. Tickets still available here.
