I'll take "Famous Juggalos" for $400, Alex

Last night at trivia, one of the questions I got right (but also lost cred for knowing the answer to in the first place) was "What is the real name of Vanilla Ice?"

(Hint: the category was "starts with v", and it's the last name)

I was curious to see what the wikipedia had to say about Mr. Ice , and got this gem, posted especially for das_prompt:

"On the album Vanilla Ice collaborated with many artists such as Wu-Tang Clan affiliate La The Darkman, Public Enemy, and Insane Clown Posse (which earned him the following of Insane Clown Posse's famously dedicated fan base known as Juggalos). Vanilla Ice & the Insane Clown Posse have supposedly remained great friends. Ice briefly appeared in the JCW, the Insane Clown Posse's wrestling federation, to replace Shaggy 2 Dope when he was injured."

Just in case you needed another reason to mock the Ice man.
Temple of the golden ass

Best jury duty ever!

Murderous gang of 400-pound armed Samoans on the loose in King County!

Seriously guys, it's time to panic, since there may be as many as
30 of them AND they hang out with two whites, a couple of blacks, one Native American and, a "transgendered individual", so no one is safe. Especially not your parents.

I know the Darwin Awards doesn't yet have a category for "Someone who deserves to go to prison, whether guilty or not, for having such a profoundly misinformed view of the American court system and the value of Public Defenders, most likely gained from watching too much TV", but I think we have a strong contender for a lifetime achivement in Mr. Phadnis.

I smell an "incompetent counsel" appeal in the years to come.
