Nebraska, a personable and modest 22-year-old dishwasher from Lincoln, Nebraska, takes a punch.
As our nation's culture and economy continues to deteriorate, more and more people are taking an interest in watching people beat the shit out of each other. While, under normal circumstances, these events are highly promoted and take place in giant arenas after two opponents carefully train, there is still a place where brawls remain brutal, honorable and organized.

Another Gathering of the Juggalos has come and gone, and with it thousands of face-painted, fun-loving freaks and misfits to and from the event's first year in Thornville, Ohio. While the move from the deep wilderness of Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, to this year's decidedly more inhabited location did make the experience seem less like being on another planet, there was still an overabundance of hilarious and strange things happening at all times.

Here are the best overheard quotations from the 2014 edition of the Gathering of the Juggalos.

Clearly, this man takes top honors
Juggalo fashion generally involves great big pants and T-shirts that were possibly purchased at truck stops. Hair is best when it is braided and aloft in the style of Coolio, and everything looks better coated in a thin layer of sticky-delicious Faygo, of course.

Singer Jumps Off Stage and Punches Fan at the Gathering of the Juggalos

While the Gathering of the Juggalos is generally known as a peaceful event filled with unity and togetherness, there are still occasional scuffles. One such incident took the form of a melee early Thursday morning when Hed PE rapper/singer Jared Gomes launched himself into the crowd to confront a rambunctious heckler.

According to an eyewitness account, the Southern California nu-metal act's 3:30 a.m. set on the Carousel stage was detoured after a member of the crowd kept yelling at the band to play songs by the Clue -- Gomes' highly memorable new-wave band from the '80s. As you can observe in the video below, the Clue's style is fairly distant from the jump-up-and-down rap/rock hybrid approach his current band is better known for, performing with acts such as Korn and System of a Down.

The Gathering of the Juggalos' Night Court Helps Wicked Clowns Bury the Hatchet (NSFW)

A young juggalo faces the punishment for his crimes.
Those in the outside world tend to view the Gathering of the Juggalos as a lawless festival of debauchery, with apparently violent clowns -- "gang members," even, if you ask the U.S. government -- running rampant and chaos ruling the day.
In actually, this notion is far from the truth. Juggalos in attendance not only consistently treat one another with respect, but they even have an institutionalized arbiter of disputes for when conflict does arise.

Have an issue with a fellow juggalo? Take them to Juggalo Night Court.
