"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro" was made famous by author Hunter S. Thompson in his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The book follows a fictionalized retelling of Thompson's journey from Los Angeles to Vegas with his attorney to cover several races and conventions that Thompson has been assigned to. It is written in Thompson's famous gonzo style of journalism where the writer participates in the event and writes about it subjectively instead of objectively.
