The proud meatball, who passed summers in Seaside Heights by dancing in the street and falling a whole lot, turns 28 today. And though she doesn't seem too happy about getting a little longer in the tooth, we'll take any chance we can get to celebrate the woman who once famously noted "this isn't rocket scientist."
Look back at some of our favorite cackle-inducing D moments of all time, and be sure to wish her the very happiest of birthdays!

The news that Vin was temporarily moving out didn't sit so well with the meatball.
A couch ate her alive.
WE'RE NEVER GOING BACK TO JENNIFER CONVERTIBLES AGAIN!
