'Jersey Shore's' PSAs teach Seaside survival

Last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore” was a sort of reel of dysfunctional public service announcements:

  • When you “burn your face off” at the tanning salon, apply a generous amount of aloe and use Freeze Pops to lessen the sting.
  • If your boyfriend takes issue with your constant need to flaunt your panties in public, wear a less cute pair under your club attire. Donning a pair embroidered with your beau’s name will only heighten your desire to hike up your skirt and show off your lady parts.
  • To ensure a second meeting with your one night stand, steal his diamond chain before he kicks you out at 4 a.m. Bring the chain back the next afternoon and pretend you don’t remember stuffing it in your shorts the previous night.

But not all of the episode’s PSAs were “Shore”-ified. For the first time, “Jersey Shore” included an important takeaway.

Vinny, who has been battling anxiety since the gang got back to Seaside Heights, had to decide whether he should head home for awhile. Having experienced panic attacks since 16, Vin knew the best way to deal with his stress: He steered clear of booze and found a confidante in his boss Danny.

After venting to Danny, spending an afternoon on the boardwalk with Ron and getting mani/pedis with the boys, Vin made the decision to go home and deal with his anxiety in a calmer environment.

The exchange he had with Pauly was a little heartbreaking – like something out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.

“Can I go with you?” Pauly asked as he helped Vinny pack his bags. “Then you’ll have to come back.”

“The hardest part is leaving you,” Vin replied.

But the show must go on…

Like The Situation says, "If you don’t know how to play chess, drop down and try checkers."

What did you think of last night’s episode?

    Got news for you people out there, Just because there are a few rotten eggs that play it up for the camera, doesn't mean all the people in the state are like that! Born and raised here and the people (not New Yorkers who are taking over our state) are incredibly good people. So don't knock us unless you have lived here!

    Us mormons like this show. A-LOT. It is funny and entertaining. We dont like when they argue though. They should all be buds and get along. That Deena sure is crud though. I bet she isnt a good mormon. She is sooooo ugly it is almost rediculous. She is bad ugly.

    There is just so much wrong here, where to begin. How about your boyfriend gets mad when you flaunt your panties in public, so you can show off your lady parts! Man, these people live in another universe. They don't even qualify to be trailer trash.

    Lol, Tracie's a Marquee fixture. She/he is like that homeless guy on the corner screaming about Reptoids and how the government is stealing their sperm. First you're scared but then you just get used to it and don't really notice.

    Pathetic freak. Do you sit and wait for new stories just so you can post this c r a p continuously throughout the day. Go occupy a park or something; you're obviously not good for anything else.
