It’s a Jersey Thing

First off, I realize I’m late here. But, I had to make some mention of the last South Park episode. I don’t watch the Jersey Shore. During the first season, I felt compelled to see what it was all about, recorded an episode, got about 10 minutes in before giving up. It was painful, the cast members should all be euthanized and very little actually happened. However, I feel like I know everything about the show thanks to Bill Simmons’ obsession and the general media adoration of this group of Jersey freaks.

First off, I realize I’m late here.  But, I had to make some mention of the last South Park episode.  I don’t watch the Jersey Shore.  During the first season, I felt compelled to see what it was all about, recorded an episode, got about 10 minutes in before giving up.  It was painful, the cast members should all be euthanized and very little actually happened.  However, I feel like I know everything about the show thanks to Bill Simmons’ obsession and the general media adoration of this group of Jersey freaks.

So when I saw South Park was doing a Jersey Shore spoof, I was a little disappointed.  I expect South Park to go after pop-culture phenomenons, that’s fine… but I think my biggest issue was it came within a week of a painfully bad Bones episode on the same topic.  But thankfully, the guys at South Park understand how to make a quality parody.  It wasn’t their best episode, but it was certainly worth watching.  Having Al Qeada fly jets into the Jersey crowd was an interesting touch.  I really expected more backlash from it, but it seems the nation is more concerned about how they portrayed their beloved Snooki.  Well, news flash, Snooki is a disgusting little monster that only exists to scare people and take advantage of them sexually.
