There is a certain poetry to the dialogue on the hit MTV show “Jersey Shore.” Snooki, the Situation, Pauly D and the rest of the cast members each have a particular way with words that has made for some profoundly quotable moments during the show’s first season. In anticipation of the upcoming sophomore run of episodes (which sees the cast head down to Miami and premieres on MTV on July 29), today marks the release of “Gym, Tanning, Laundry: The Official Jersey Shore Quote Book.” Named after the mantra often repeated by the cast members, it contains some of the most memorable lines from the show’s opening season.
The book contains all your favorite lines from each of the members of the cast, from J-WOWW’s “I’m like a praying mantis — after I have sex with a guy, I rip their heads off” to Snooki’s “My boobs are so tight I can’t breathe — is that normal?” And while the cast members handle the original performances perfectly, we decided to ask a handful of stars to give their interpretations of these delightful words.
So click below for author and pro wrestling star Mick Foley (who totally nails Snooki’s pathos), “Twilight” star Jackson Rathbone, fellow MTV headliner Warren the Ape and “The A-Team” stars Sharlto Copley and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. “Gym, Tanning, Laundry: The Official Jersey Shore Quote Book” is in bookstores everywhere today, and while the new season won’t be back until July 29, you can catch up on everything you missed when MTV re-airs the first season every Thursday night.
