TV Quote of the Day (‘Jersey Shore,’ As the Duration of a Crush is Described)

“It's obvious that Sammi has a crush on me. It goes back to the days of prehistoric kindergarten.”—Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, in Jersey Shore, Season 1, Episode 8, “One Shot,” original air date Jan. 14, 2010

The Memorial Day weekend is here, bringing with it summer. At this time of year, many young people gather together in houses, get drunk and stupid, and wreck the joints. 

Those are the types of idiots that Jersey Shore was about. While it aired, some colleges offered courses on the show. One of its “stars,” Snooki, was even paid $32,000 to speak at a student-sponsored event at Rutgers University 13 years ago.

And then there’s “The Situation.” What I’d like to know is who else he met in “prehistoric kindergarten”? Pebbles Flintstone?

Can you think of any better demonstration of the crisis in American education, or even the dire state of this republic?
