(Newser) – Let's hope Snooki sorta planned that baby she's reportedly carrying (stop giggling). Because if she didn't, that fetus has to be nearly swimming in booze by now. While Forbes is concerned about what's to become of the diminutive reality star's "brand," others are worried about the drinking habits of the pregnant 24-year-old, who seems to spend very few minutes sober on Jersey Shore. "Is there a test for fetal alcohol syndrome at three months in utero?" wonders

"Quick, word association test," demands, "because all that comes to mind" for the pregnant "diva of debauchery" is "fetal alcohol syndrome"—a leading cause of mental retardation. The reported pregnancy poses problems for Snooki and JWoww's spin-off, and for Jersey Shore, where the cast spends "approximately 97.2% of their time being absolutely trashed," notes studybreaks. Snooki has some qualms about her hard-partying ways, once telling Ellen DeGeneres: "I want to remember my night, and sometimes I just don't. It sucks. You're like, 'What did I do? Why did I wake up in a garbage can?'"
