Overheard at the Gathering of the Juggalos 2014: The Best Quotations


  • Nate "Igor" Smith

Another Gathering of the Juggalos has come and gone, and with it, thousands of face-painted, fun-loving freaks and misfits to and from the event's first year in Thornville, Ohio. While the move from the deep wilderness of Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, to this year's decidedly more inhabited location did make the experience seem less like being on another planet, there was still an overabundance of hilarious and strange things happening at all times.

Here are the best overheard quotations from the 2014 edition of the Gathering of the Juggalos.

Mike Busey, in the camouflage vest. - NATE "IGOR" SMITH
