You have probably heard of 'Murphy's Law', but now legislators in new Jersey are trying to enact the 'Snooki Law', named after the famous - or infamous reality star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the most well-known star of the MTV Reality Show "Jersey Shore". The law would allow towns better control over reality shows that film there.
Snooki is just the centerpiece example of what is wrong with reality television. Not only does she sleep with pretty much anyone with a pulse, she portrays extreme alcoholism in a way that makes teens wants to drink, and gets arrested fairly often. It is a sad world when this is the type of person that kids and teens are striving to be like.
The Snooki Law will allow cities to recoup costs, and charge the television programs for the extra security that is required to keep riots from forming when the stars go out in public. The law is set up to protect unsuspecting cities and towns from being the victim of a classless reality show that costs the city money.
What do you think about the Snooki legislation? Your opinion matters!
