(Newser) – In case you haven't heard, the Jersey Shore cast is going to Italy—but the mayor of Florence somehow expects the reality show not to "promote Florence as a drinking town." That's just one of the rules he's given to the cast. The New York Post, citing an Italian newspaper, notes that others include "The cast will not be filmed in bars and clubs that serve alcohol" and "The cast will not be filmed drinking in public." Which makes you wonder ... what exactly will they be doing there? Click for the rest of the rules.

I'm sure the good people of Firenze will give these fools the complete and utter inattention they deserve.

I have a relative that is the producer of this rag show. He is a Democrat, actually more like a far left blowhard nutjob. Reminds me a bit of 'JesusLovesSomeOf You' but more mature. Oh, look. JesusLSOY is holding a book that says (I was blessed with good vision) Fuck You. Newser, are you going to let that stand too? You made him take down the middle finger, but you let him keep the profanity?
