I stumbled across the animated Netflix series "Inside Job" this summer when I was in need of something new to watch. For those who don't know what the show is, the basic idea is, every conspiracy theory you can imagine is real, and Secret Societies, under the guise of shadowy groups and corporations, really do run the world.

But an unlikely addition was made in Season 2 to the group of Secret Societies with ties to Michigan and Detroit - The Insane Clown Posse.

Part 2 (Season 2) of the show was released a week ago, and I enjoyed the absurdity of the first run of episodes. So I dove in.

In the first episode, the fictional corporation "Cognito Inc." takes part in a sort of Burning Man-style gathering of secret societies called "The "Power Struggle," at the highly secretive Bohemian Grove in California.

If you're unfamiliar with what that is, the short version is, there's supposedly a giant wooden owl in the woods in California, on a plat of land owned by the secretive "Bohemian Club," where the world's most powerful people gather and hold rituals on a regular basis. Though, it's unclear WHAT those rituals are for.

But in the show, while there, the episode introduces the six largest Secret Societies in the world - The Atlantians, The Catholic Church, The Reptoids, Cognito, Inc., The Illuminati, AAAND... the Juggalos.

Yes... the Juggalos are apparently canon now as a secret society (though I don't know how "secret" they really are). As they're introduced, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope roll up in an SUV, with several painted Juggalos, and proclaim...

"Woop Woop! You b*****s Down to Clown? We Secretly Control Global Finance!"

... all while shaking and spraying 2-liter bottles of what looks like Cotton Candy Faygo.

Obviously, it's all animated, it's all blown out of proportion, and meant to be entertaining. But, if you are to believe at least SOME of these conspiracies in the show, then I guess there is a small possibility that The Insane Clown Posse does control the world's banking system.

It also means they're likely using Faygo as a front for laundering... which makes us kind of sad, but that's a sacrifice we're willing to make in Michigan.
