I just wanted to see what all the hype was about.

Is that for real? the whole Guido/Guidette business? The orange spray-tan, jacked-up hair, Ed Hardy wardrobe dripping with gold chains? Is this a serious thing, or made up for tv? Do people in this area really do themselves up like that? Forgive my naivete, but Pauly D... that hair, come on.
And Snooki... Wtf? That's all I can say about her. And who names themself "The Situation". Really?

If you search the Jersey Shore resorts enough, you'll come across clowns like those shown on that show.

But then again, if you search enough Borders bookstores, Olive Garden restaurants, and Wal*Marts, you'll find them there, too.

I couldn't even stomach it for 15 minutes.

Snooki and those frickin' lips drive me insane. Every bloody picture I've ever seen of her, she has them puckered. I want to punch her.

I haven't and won't watch it.

I haven't seen it around here. I think most of those idiots are from Staten Island, aren't they? They're giving the NJ shore a bad rap. :mad:

I have no idea where they migrated from, but their flock is mainly orange with lots of gold, elaborate plumage, and a very distinctive call.

I found it hilarious, in a "I'm laughing at you, not with you" sort of way. And then I wanted to strangle myself after about 15 minutes of watching it. *fist pump*

I have never seen that show nor do I plan to. We were watching Million Dollar Listings or something like that on FLN or something. What a bunch of tools!

I've never seen that show, but the Guido thing is definitely real. When I lived in Philly in the early '90s, on Saturday night South Street would be filled with suburban dirtbags acting like community theater versions of Goodfellas characters.

I have friends who live on South Street. A very different kind of weekend show going on there now.

This.

The whole thing offends the sensibilities of true Jerseyans.
Ha! I love how every benighted community believes that its reputation is being ruined by "those people" in the next town, who are the *true* losers. If you're from Jersey, it's Staten Island. If you're from San Francisco, it's those hippie freaks in Berkeley. In China, nobody will admit to seeing a dog eaten, but everybody knows that "they" eat dogs over in that other province. Shanghainese will put it on the folks in Guangzhou. I wonder who the Guangzhou people blame?

They blame Jersey.
