Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!


Goth Spike Collapse


Gothiness: 3 Sweatiness: 10
Here a poor teenage Goth has realised that playing softball with his friends in the height of summer has made the huge spike on the front of his head collapse. Never mind, Goth Jr! Once you've unfolded those arms, you can write a poem about it. Near that satellite dish.
(edit: yes, technically this is a Juggalo. It still counts)

This is not a goth. This is a juggalo, an infinitely more pathetic specimen.

A juggalo? I bow to your far superior knowledge, Jilder, for which I can only thank you. While bowing, I hear the magical creaking sound of the knees of my rubber trousers! Actually, it could just be my knees.

Methinks the Juggalo doth protest too much ...)

Not goth, but Insane Clown Posse fan. Far More suckage.

Juggalo worse than a goth? Are you insane?

This is the Super Moth! picture that was used in the Black Moth Super Rainbow video intro with Eric Wareheim (of Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!) for their tour. LOL

This kid is disturbing in ways I cannot wrap my mind around. And juggalos are the biggest waste of resources we have. If you need to shove a two liter bottle up a girls butt and spray her down with Tab... God, I don't know how to finish that sentence.

Juggalos are not goths. They are completely different subcultures, as Juggalos by definition are fans strictly of ICP.

Do your research and it might be funnier.

Hey this thread's getting good! I didn't know juggalos were such.... pedants. Can it be true that we've finally found a subculture that's completely devoid of humour? I've deleted most of the crap comments from people who just DON'T GET IT, but I'm going to leave this one running for those of you (mainly juggalos it appears) who really don't understand irony - flame away limp haired fiends!

The Steampunk said...

I know, like, fifty of them, and Juggalo's are EXACTLY hip-hop-goths. The End.
