Fools’ Gold: An Oral History of the Insane Clown Posse Parodies


I read this and felt totally exasperated because it went on for so many words without noting that any and all ICP-related humor going on right now - certainly including the bit I wrote myself - comes directly out of Tom Scharpling and Paul F. Tompkins riffing about the Gathering of the Juggalos 2009 infomercial in the July 21st 2009 episode of the Best Show on WFMU. Scharpling and Tompkins put this on the comedy map, and they should get the proper credit. [EDIT: The Times did the right thing and re-edited their post to give credit to Scharpling and Tompkins. Good guys win!]
