Christian metaphor designed by ICP's handlers as an excuse to justify their stupidity to parental watchdog groups that would otherwise ban their music and put a halt to their careers.
Handler 1: These shock-rockers are being blasted out of the charts by right-wing censorship groups. How can we put a stop to it?
Handler 2: I know! Let's tell them to pretend there's a religious message in their music! We'll call it the Dark Carnival - because you have to keep it 'mysterious' to keep the rebellious teenagers attracted to it!
Imbecile who accepts the message of the 'Dark Carnival', a Christian metaphor that absolutely opposes the drug-addled, sex-infused lifestyle most self-styled 'Juggalos' lead. Have probably not moved on to better 'shock rock' or glam acts that actually have a relevant message (i.e. David Bowie, Marilyn Manson). Tend to be the lowest rungs on the social ladder, and often laud their 'family' for want of a real family to comfort them. Are paradoxical in their dedication to wearing 'gawthic' clothing while listening to watered-down gangsta rap. Utter and absolute hypocrites of the lowest order.
Dude 1: Did you see that moron in the Tripp pants?
Dude 2: Yeah, he's such a juggalo.
Prophet of Celebritarianism, the study of postmodern idolatry of celebrity martyrdom.
Everything else Marilyn Manson has done is secondary to this message.
