Stupidity Abroad

With MTV perpetually shaming our nation every week by airing episodes of The Jersey Shore Season 4  filmed in Florence, Italy perhaps it’s time to take a look at what makes these morons so delightfully entertaining.  Indeed the premise of the show is quite simple: put a couple of young wild Italian-Americans in a house together, chuck booze at ’em, and watch what happens.  The Jersey Shore has since evolved into a pop-culture phenomenon and TV ratings juggernaut.  The Jersey Shore is undoubtedly pop-culture for the sake of pop-culture: teenagers and young adults alike can flip to MTV, watch these idiots gets drunk, and forget about their day.  Given that the original cast of the show has in fact been let go after wrapping production on season 5, let’s take a look at the imbecile’s lucky enough to have signed fairly lucrative ‘spin-off’ deals.  Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is a classic and shameless Promoter Artisan and rampant dimwit.  DJ Pauly Delvecchio is a Crafter Artisan playboy and resident jokester with a slew of popular catch phrases.  Jennifer “Jwoww” Farley is a another tough and heavily siliconed Crafter Artisan.  Finally Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may be a loud-mouthed, infamously trashy, and largely obnoxious Performer Artisan, but is actually a genuinely sweet-hearted girl and serves as the heart of the show.  The idea behind firing the current cast of course is to keep the Jersey Shore cash cow going with an all new and much cheaper cast, while still retaining their current ‘stars’ in spin-offs.  That way America can be once again blessed with an entirely new and fresh group of utterly classless morons.  Jersey Shore airs Thursdays 10/9 Central on MTV.
