The "Jersey Shore" is back tonight and this time the band of medling meatballs are in their motherland, Italy. Well, it's the motherland for like three of them, but forget the semantics. BroBible reader, SJUM29 -- who actually sent us a drinking game for their last season -- just compiled this list of rules to drink by for this season. You guys thought the shark week list was deadly, this list stands on that list's chest and pisses on it. Truly an inspired and robust effort to say the least. So if you like to pre-game on Thursday nights by drinking and watching Guidos, give it a try.
Season 4 Rules:
- Drink whenever a cast member mispronounces or has difficulty pronouncing an Italian word.
- Drink whenever the cameras capture a visibly annoyed Italian native or when the cast members are confronted by an Italian native for any reason.
- Drink whenever the cast members are confused by the Italian language or signage.
- Drink whenever the cast members have an awkward exchange with or get shot down by an Italian native of the opposite sex. Drink 2 if a cast member explains to the camera why hooking up or is more difficult or different in Italy to justify why they were unsuccessful.
- Drink whenever Snooki or Deena fall down randomly.
- Drink whenever a cast member references their Italian heritage. Chug the remainder of your drink if Snooki (Chilean) or JWoww (Irish-Spanish) in any way insinuate they are Italian.
