I’m not sure if I’m going to watch it or not.  I grew up in South Jersey so most of us weren’t like the Long Island/North Jersey people but I sure did know a few guys who acted like them!

Oh man you have no idea! I know plenty guys like that from Jersey, Staten Island, LI, etc. It’s a joke around our house. FI’s cousin brought him 2 bottles of Ed Hardy wine as a B-day gift LOL!

Even the crew from the show thinks it’s hsyterical – have you seen this??

I’m not sure what show your talking about, but I went to school in central Jersey (between Princeton and Trenton) and like @MissAsB said you can tell a difference in the way people acted between those who were from North Jersey/Long Island and South Jersey…not all, but there were a lot

I know, SandDollar!  When we were in school, we always said that South Jersey should be its own state because everyone thinks that we should talk like “Joisey” and it drove me up a wall!

haha! I was just going to say that! It seems like Jersey is really two states and not just one

@ SandDollar  & MissAsBYou’re right there defintely is a difference. And for what it’s worth, I think most people who fit the “Jersey Guido” stereotype aren’t even from NJ!

My family’s been going to the shore since my mom was little & we go further south (Sea Isle, Avalon, Stone Harbor). I always wanted to get married at Congress Hall in Cape May.

FI’s family spends Thanksgiving in his Aunts house – it’s 2 of those row houses by the boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant. Will I be in Jenks Thanksgiving weekend?! You betcha I will! 😉

@dorsay: I love my DVR but at the moment is has decided that it doesn’t want to get programming so I have to leave it off for a few days and hope that it comes back so I don’t miss anything!

@Kitty: where on LI did you grow up? I’m from there originally too. When I moved to Ohio I  had to work really hard to lose my accent (which wasn’t even as thick as most people’s are) and now people don’t believe I am from LI

So, I was watching the previews for next week’s show and saw Snooki getting punched by a guy.  I seriously re-watched it about 5 times.  I couldn’t believe it!  The guy seriously hit her so hard that her hat flew off!

I can’t stop watching this show. Also, call me Snickers. What’s your Jersey shore name?

I am obsessed with this show. Living reaaaally close to Staten Island, where most of these morons are from I think helps make it funnier. Also, I am pretty sure I know who made that YouTube video! I knew some of the crew from shows I’d worked on with them, such a small world.

My Jersey name was TAN-Trum- which is pretty fantastic!! Love the show- hot sweaty mess. Love it.

I’m 100% Italian, not offended in the least bit, think it’s hilarious. It is incredibly stereotypical, but….it’s Mtv. That’s what they do.

I love Snookie!! What a mess.
