Sometimes we wonder WTF the people are thinking. Insane Clown Posse is a group of heavy metal rappers. It’s not the kind of stuff the blue hairs (with their blue license plates) like to listen to. As a matter of fact, ICP’s music is EXACTLY what you’d play if you wanted to cheese-off anyone over the age of, say 30.
But every generation had their own music to scare skidmarks into the adult population. Remember the devil’s Jazz music back in the ‘20’s?
How ‘bout Elvis & his pelvis in the ‘50’s?
The Beatles anyone?
Remember the 70’s when THESE guys were scary?
Here at PTB we believe that music is a lot like ice cream. Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry are o.k. but every once in a while we crave a spinach, onion skin and broccoli sorbet. That’s what ICP would be if they were a sorbet. But it’s just music.
Well, here we go again. It seems that the RenoPoPo have labeled ICP, their music and their artwork…get this…gang affiliated! Say it ain’t so! Gang-bangers listen to Heavy metal rap music? No wonder they run when we crank up our Hawkshaw Hawkins tunes!
ANYWAY…up steps Meadowood Mall security. They’re enforcing a new rule that states you cannot wear ICP attire inside the mall. If you do…you’ll get the bum’s rush.
WTF are these people thinking? Someone from Meadowood suggested that ICP garb is “intimidating.” Thanks Captain Obvious. What’s next? Banning halter tops and short skirts ‘cause some geeky nerds are intimidated by girl-flesh?
What about banning cowboy hats and boots if some PETA-wipe is intimidated by the sight of a dogie-puncher?
How ‘bout banning McQueen football players from wearing their letter jackets ‘cause it scares the bejeezus out of the rest of the 775’s 4A high school footballers?
The crux of our biscuit is simple…maybe as simple as the minds who thought up this ludicrous policy. If you’re intimidated by the clothes someone is wearing…you’d be better off moving to China or North Korea where they all wear the same drab, boring shit. If you’re intimidated by a heavy metal rap group…just wait a few years. The next generation’s gonna have their own kids and their “Elvis” is gonna be even scarier!
