I Did It All For The Snooki

I don’t watch Jersey Shore.

No, I’m usually too busy watching quality, highbrow entertainment like The Bad Girls Club.

Ok, clearly I’m not above watching some trashy TV, but I’ve just never felt the desire to watch Jersey Shore. Maybe I just have a problem with any show that makes sexy Italians look silly. Or maybe I’m just peeved that they didn’t call ME. Whatever.

So, while it’s true that I hold no love for these fist-pumping mental giants, I’d be lying if I didn’t find Snookie’s showing at this past weekend’s Wrestlemania completely surprising.

She’s usually such a fall-down drunken embarrassment whose only real claim to fame is being punched in the face, so it’s easy not to expect TOO much from the little orange Oompa-Loompa.

But I have to admit, I didn’t think that tan little midget could pull off moves like this:






I’m not saying that now I’d bang her or anything. I’m just saying that I was surprised to finally see her do something, ANYTHING, that actually took some kind of talent.

And yes, I fully do realize that this was going all around the interwebs yesterday, but I was hauling my ass around NYC yesterday for work, so I didn’t get a post up. Sue me. Or kiss me. Whatever works.

The only other time I've seen snookie was on South Park. All she said was "Snookie want smush, smush" while trying to grid her private area on helpless childen in South Park. Who new she could do some gymnastic moves. Matt and Trey missed out on some of her additional talents. By the way, where can I go to cash in on the kiss offer?

Oddly, if you watched the show this wouldn't surprise you very much. She's always doing cartwheels, flips and splits. Tiny, solid, athletic girl. Just like you, Slyde.

Slyde said...

Brandy Rose said...

I'm with 2abes. I had to google what a snookie was after seeing her on Southpark.

That little orange spark plug is built to take a bump. Good for her.

Still will not be catching the JS fever. Or whatever those kids are passing around.

She gives us Jersey girls a bad name. And, she's from Staten Island thankfully. That's like the garbage dump of north Jersey. haha. It's amazing what we are turning out as "celebrities" today.

Marlene said...

I don't watch it, either...but got rooked into watching an episode or two while I was away on a girls' weekend. I just don't see the attraction....but diff'rent strokes I guess!

(P.S. I'm laughing out loud at your response to Earl above!!! Now THAT was funny!)

Slyde said...

Brandi: googling snooki sounds dirty....

anna: and they pass around ALOT!

barb: i didnt know you were from this neck of the woods! :)

earl: yeah, any time i can take a shot at him, in gonna take it...

I hate to admit this, but Snookie did GREAT.

And even though, I am an Italian FROM New Jersey, I actually *love* The Jersey Shore.

Slyde said...

i dare say this post inspired a dream. a dream where i went to your house. you and your lovely wife were hosting a party and Mr. Hall and I attended. Your house was huge and was surrounded by woods and views of huge lake. And i was havign such a good time.

I think the thing is, is that I've never had a pack of friends like that up there. I tend to hang out with artsy introspective types and that whole social gathering is not a thing with that crowd.

BUT!

I've been changing things up lately and dammit! I'm getting a wee gaggle of friends. Having dinner parties and laughign and enjoying.

I will change my social patterns if it kills me!!

about Star Trek the movie

Slyde: they were beamed to the icy planet so Spoke could see his planet destroyed. I was a little disturbed by the random monsters but um, this pays homage to the original series. lots of random rubbery aliens.

GOOD TIMESS!!

Hey I'm a big wrestling fan & I caught Wrestlemania! I knew she was coming on because she made appearances an even hit the ring with Trish Strauss on Monday Night Raw. It was pretty awesome.

I'm watch Jersey Shore-- They're clueless, classless moronic idiots but God help me I am so addicted to the show!
