Ok, so bare with me... it was right about the second month that the PS3 was out. I was playing Rainbow Six
Vegas online when I started chatting it up with some lad from Michigan. We were talking about our previous games and how we were doing that night, when he tells me "well, I've had a rough night because people know I'm a Juggalo and keep making fun of me for it." At first I just go with the flow and respond "oh, that's messed up." I had no idea what Juggalo meant, but I wanted to make my new pal feel better. Soon, curiosity gets the best of me and I finally, nonchalantly, ask "what's a Juggalo, again? It's slipping my mind. I can't really figure out why those guys would make fun of you"

He responds, "I'm a Juggalo because I like - " and then his mic cut out. I was like what?! you like what?! His mic cuts back in and he's like "I think it's a dumb reason to make fun of someone, but whatever. I can deal with it."

So for about a year and a half I thought anyone who was referred to as a Juggalo was gay. :lol :lol Don't ask me why that was the first thing I assumed...

A thread on here actually opened my eyes as to what a juggalo is [juggalo reunion thread or something like that. tits for a dollar, i think?] :D so now I know what juggalo means, but I'll never forget what I thought it meant, haha.

What misconceptions did you have, Gaffers?

You meant gigolo - which, while it does not denote or connote homosexuality, does refer to one who fucks a great deal.

I thought awry was pronounced to rhyme with gory.

No, I knew what a gigolo was. I had seen the movie by that time. The mic cut outs and how sad the kid sounded... idk. It all just came together like the perfect storm. :lol

A gigolo is a male prostitute.

They mean to disguise the fact that they are the festering, genetically degraded sediment of humanity - having sunk to that position - by acting like they always meant to be that way.

This girl in highschool had, for some reasons, the meanings of orgy and riots mixed. She truely believed that when the news talked about 'Cops breaking down riots in Greece', it really meant that the cops were arresting hundreds of people having giant spectacles of public sex in front of people, people running around naked, etc.

She later explained that it came from when she was a kid; she was watching the news with her grandparents and some sex club had been closed down for hosting orgies and etc and when she asked them what it means, they said it was like 'riots'

Ahhh highschool.

When I was a kid, I thought that the music playing in McDonald's came from bands hanging out in the attic. On top of this, it wasn't just one band up there all the time, but in fact many bands just biding their time until it was their turn to perform. :lol
