Abandon all hope ye who live here

What a dumbshit culture we live in, what a willfully dumbshit people we are and what an age-old and ultimately useless (because we're all dumbshits, remember) lament that is, because this, folks, is who we are...

From the Chicago Tribune

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, star of the reality tv show "Jersey Shore" is writing a book set for release in early 2011. The novel, which will be titled "A Shore Thing," will include "big hair, dark tans and fights galore" according to the book's publisher, Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster.

Of her book the "Jersey Shore" star said in a written statement, "I'm pumped to announce to my fans a project that I've been working on for some time."

To be fair, this is not a surprise. "With the help of her managers, Snooki is trying to spin her image into Snooki-theme products and maybe a book..." Cathy Horn wrote in the New York Times in July of the reality star. Of Polizzi's literary inclinations, Horn also writes, "She simply isn’t capable of serious introspection. She told me she has read only two books in her life, 'Twilight' and 'Dear John.'"

Move along, folks, nothing to see here...


  1. Oh my gawd.

    Humanity, I'm afraid, gets what it deserves. I'm just sort of glad I'm past the halfway mark and won't (likely) live to see the fruits of modern society's idiocy.

  2. This is, truly, a loss for all of us.

    Now, I'm scared $#!tless to even pitch a book idea. If I get turned down, I have to remember THIS.

  3. One late sleepless night and notta on the tub I checked out about 15 min of Jersey Shore... I was left questioning humanity... Do people REALLY act like that!?!?
