I'll take "Famous Juggalos" for $400, Alex [Oct. 7th, 2005|04:08 pm]
Just me.
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.

Drop the zero and get with a hero!


I actually heard that album. It wasn't all that. (GASP!) But the new version of Ice Ice Baby was funny once or twice.

Correction, it was Hard To Swallow that had the enw IIB version. I guess I'd better brush up on my Vanilla if I'm going to compete with your expertise.

I actually learned his name when Jim Carey mocked him on In Living Color:

"What's your name?"
"Why'd you change it?"
