“Jersey Shore” Gone Wilde

What happens when dialog taken from MTV’s “Jersey Shore”, the nadir of current American culture, is filtered through the lens of Oscar Wilde, one of the greatest wits the world has ever seen? Magic, that’s what. Playbill — with the help of Santino Fontana and David Furr, current cast members of Wilde’s most famous play, The Importance of Being Earnest — presents a grand experiment: “Jersey Shore” Gone Wilde. This is, perhaps, the best thing I have seen this year.

    I’m glad someone else thinks this is funny. I posted a link on Facebook yesterday, and no one said a word. I was starting to think I was mad or something. “Blows dick for skittles” made me fall out of my chair.

    Funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. My Facebook friends didn’t say a thing either. Either they didn’t see it or have a totally different sense of humor.
