When Beavis and Butthead was returned to us 90’s kids, surprisingly intact and still hilarious, the first glimpse we were given were the two huh-huh merchants huh-huhing at MTV’s guido-centric reality show Jersey Shore.
Indeed, it seems the low-intellect shenanigans of Snooki, J-Woww and The Situation were perfect for their critical pop-culture commentary, and Butthead’s comment about the hook-up chart going back far enough to see “where herpes began” made many Beavis and Butthead fans feel assured the show’s sense of humor remained intact. It was also spot-on- the young people featured on Jersey Shore have demonstrated a very indiscriminate eye for the opposite sex and often engage in hook-ups as part of the show’s “plot.”
So MTV has gathered the kids together to advise the rest of us on how to behave (and not behave) when engaging in a hook-up. If you’ve ever envied Pauly D’s game, here’s your chance to romance the ladies like a juicehead. And if you’ve ever wondered just how Snooki manages to reign in the guidos, read on.
From Pauly D, some words on respectful use of technology: “You should never text-message during hooking up…Put your phone away.”
The Situation addressed another respect issue, keeping track of names: “You should never call another name. If her name is Sheila, don’t call her Tawana.”
Ever the lady, J-Woww advised discretion when talking to a potential hook-up: “[Don’t] throw it all out there… ‘I got kids, I was married, I was this, I’m bankrupt, I killed my mom’ …you don’t do that stuff.”
And Deena wants to remind potential lotharios to keep bodily functions under control, adding: “[Don’t] fart or burp in their face.”
Will you be tuning in to the second episode of Jersey Shore, season five tonight?
