Wow! Guilty pleasures just entered an entirely new realm.
The announcement was made on the WIP Morning Show and confirmed with a simple statement on the 610-WIP Web site:
Breaking news and the stories that matter to your neighborhood.
“Snooki from MTV's Jersey Shore will be at Wing Bowl 18.”
It wasn't clear exactly what Snooks, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, would be doing at Wing Bowl but she should fit right in with the almost burlesque atmosphere of Wing Bowl debauchery.
It's a bit hard, though, to imagine the girl who slept until 3 in the afternoon at the Jersey Shore getting up in time to make the 6 a.m. Wing Bowl.
For anyone who isn't aware of what the annual Wing Bowl is all about, here is a quick breakdown:
Men (and women) eaters gorge themselves with chicken wings -- the eater who chows down the most cluck wins the Wing-Bowl title. There is also a parade of sorts in which the contestants and their entourages march around the arena.
An integral part of every entourage -- the woman, a.k.a. Wingettes. Ladies from all around the area stuff themselves into itsy-bitsy bikinis for a sort of fashion show as they vie for the title of Wingette of the Year.
And, let's not forget all the flashing and drinking going on in the stands.
By adding the 4-foot-9 tanned, big-haired, big -- well you’ve seen the show -- self-described guidette force of Snooki, this year’s event could take on a whole new spectacle. Who knows, maybe Snooki's dream juicehead will be downing a few brews in the third row.
