I also wanted to know about the backyard-wrestling thing. Hellyn had quite the resume in this department. He told me he had been pile-driven through fire, body-slammed on thumbtacks, you name it.
There was so much other shit that I talked about with the Juggalos, there’s no way I could fit all of it in this article. But the interview started with me pounding a liter of Faygo courtesy of Den2e and that’s how I’m gonna end it, by pounding another liter that Den2e let me have for the road.
MMFCL Ninjas! Woop woop!
Like all subcultures in our society, Juggalos have their own brand of slang. With the help of GFC, Chaos and CJ, I have put together this loose Glossary. I’ll give the definition then use the word in a sentence.
Neden = Pussy: “I sure hope that neden doesn’t make me itch, this makeup is itchy enough.”
Woop! Woop! = “What’s up” greeting: “Woop! Woop! You want fries with that?” Fresh = Cool: “Woop! Woop! Fresh kicks, son!”
Stale = Lame: “That neden was totally stale, just like this Radiohead CD.” Scrubbin’ = Dirty, ghetto: “That fixed gear bike be scrubbin’, man.”
Ninja = Homie; popular greeting amongst Juggalos: “Stay up, Ninja.”
Killa = Another homie greeting, kind of like Ninja: “You’re tight, Killa.”
Shangri-La = ICP interpretation of heaven; has some spiritual meaning to some Juggalos but is open to interpretation: “All clowns go to Shangri-La, bro.”
Hell’s Pit = Opposite of Shangri-La: “All clowner-downers go to Hell’s Pit, bro.” Clowner-downer = I made this one up but you guys should use it for anyone who harshes on the ICP. “Why do you gotta be such a clowner-downer?”
JIT = Acronym for “Juggalo in Training”: “As soon as that kid turns eight I’ll quit calling him a JIT.”
Clown Love = Pretty much what it says: “Show some clown love, G.”
MMFCL = Much Mutha Fuckin’ Clown Love, an acronym for texting purposes, popular saying of affection between Juggalos. “MMFCL, BRB, LOL call me later.”
Wicked Shit = Musical classification of Juggalo-related bands: “I like Morrissey and all, but he’s no wicked shit.”
Chicken = Redneck: “Who’s goin’ chicken huntin’?”
Juggalette = Female Juggalo: “You’d make one fine Juggalette, sweet-tits.”
Hatchet Man = The Psychopathic Record label logo, worn on chain necklaces and such, helps Juggalos distinguish each other and makes a popular tattoo amongst Juggalos: “Sweet Hatchet Man! Can I borrow five dollars?”
Hatchet Gear = any clothing items related to ICP or the Hatchet Man logo: “You look fresh in your Hatchet Gear, kid!”
Horror-Core=Self-described music genre of the Psychopathic Record label that the ICP and other bands belong to: “Goin’ to the horror-core show? Gonna be good, bro!”
