"They've no class. As an Italian-American, it's offensive."

"I guess it's drumming business up, but is it the kind of business we want here?"

The Jersey shore is sick of "Jersey Shore."

This is weird:

Seriously, I woke up this morning asking, "Why does anyone care what Snooki thinks about anything?"

Next question: can anyone answer that first question?

I guess high class Italian Americans know how to keep some things hidden, but Snookie proudly lets it all hang out. Her honesty has a strange appeal in our age of deception.What she does is boring and meaningless debauchery, but it is truly her.

Having lived on the Joysey shoor (Monmouth Beach), I can say that the stereotypes are half right.

- Lots of folks with last names ending in vowels
- The people aren't big loud a$$-holes

I take it this refers to a TV show, right? Thank God I don't watch TV.

Don't you hate it when artists succumb to the seduction of fame?

Okay, zero points for originality but a perfect "10" for being first.

Saturday night, Snooki headed to a sex toy store with new cast member Dina Nicole. Inside the Love Shack - which sells adult videos and DVDs, candles, oils, adult novelties and sexy lingerie - Snooki and Nicole giggled and playfully spanked each other with some of the items before leaving with X-rated popsicles.

"They were very, very nice," a clerk who identified herself as Brandie said. "They bought a lot of stuff."

"They were all-American girls," said Kim, another clerk, adding that the pair was accompanied by a security guard who looked like A-Rod.

Society is falling apart.

And people ask why I cancelled cable TV this summer. My wife can buy Season 4 of Mad Men. My kids do not need to be watching Jersey Shore (actually my kids were watching Disney Channel, but that is just insipid drivel). Now I make my 12 and 9 year old read actual books and my six year old currently loves having Jungle Book read to her.

Then again, Seaside Heights was always a hole. In the late 70s, mid-day drug alcohol poisoning and overdoses of teenagers were common occurrances (seems like the ER teams were constantly gurneying off teenagers from the boardwalk), I can see it has not changed that much. Nearby Lavalette, with tiny bungaloos packed on top of one another, looks like a Gazan refugee camp.

Of course, most of the Jersey Shore is high priced real estate and relatively sedate vacation and upper class retirement home towns like Spring Lake, Bayhead, Loveladies, and Cape May. The party towns are Belmar and Seaside Heights (catering to North Jersey and New York), and Wildwood (catering the Philly contingent).

What a bunch of pussies. I hate people who tell me they don't watch TV. What are you a communist like hd.

The Jersey Shore kids are just having fun.

Although the Situation is almost 30 as is Pauly D. So they are professional guido's.

If you say there are no kids like them at the Shore you are lying sacks of shit.

I moved from Minnesota to New Jersey in 1998. And I must admit, the state has grown on me. Part of the reason is that I get to rub elbows with so many Italian Americans. Once you get past the chauvinism (which can be amusing or annoying, depending on where you're coming from), I find them engaging, proud, creative, and good contributors.

Now, ask me what I think about black people! :)

I'll second Trooper. I am Italian American, and I'm from New Jersey (originally). I've never actually seen an episode of Jersey Shore,but, based on everything I've heard about it, it sounds pretty spot on.

"Do you know who I am? I'm f------ Snooki. You can't do this to me. I'm f------ Snooki. You guys are going to be sorry for this. Release me!"

I get it, this is like one of those shows where the cast of two series get together, like when "Law and Order" combined with the "NCIS".

This is "Jersey Shore" and "COPS" right?

Are you talkin to me?

I cancelled tv this summer. Does that make me a pussy, because I do not feel like funding various media comglomerates with my $100 cable bill payment a month (okay, they get me when I go to the movies or rent videos at the supermarket) but still.

There are plenty of low rent skanks in Seaside Heights. Which is why I do not go there anymore.

Oh, I do not think anyone is saying that. There are way too many kids like that at the Jersey Shore and have been for years. But I do not see glamorizing low rent guido culture as a good thing.

This however made me laugh.
