Seaside Heights (and Depths): July 4th at The Jersey Shore
Admit it. The truth will set you free.
Today, LG went to Seaside Heights, where the majority of "The Jersey Shore" is filmed, to provide a firsthand account of the boardwalk for our readers.
It's a long holiday weekend and we don't want your head to hurt too much from reading, so this is mostly a picture essay with captions. You like it that way, we know.
The crowd on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights is eclectic, to say the least. And their fashion sense reflects this; it's far-ranging and liberal when it comes to boardwalk-wear. As Geo observed, "You can't really wear anything that makes you look bad on this boardwalk." The picture above doesn't really do the assortment justice, but LG avoided pointing the camera at some of the more exotic looking ensembles for fear of instigating a fight.
LG: "How do they train you to do this job?"
Guesser: "They don't, I just answered an ad on Craigslist."
LG: "But if you guess wrong frequently, it can cost them money."
Guesser: "I usually guess wrong, everyone has been winning today."
LG suspected the Guesser was high or, possibly, just N-RITH (Not Right In The Head.)
It was quite enjoyable, despite those phone lines visible in the foreground. LG pulled the car over to the side of the road and insisted on watching the entire presentation, despite everyone in the vehicle's impatience and desire to get going. As LG pointed out, you're not really a patriotic American unless you watch the fireworks in their entirety.
LG has already e-mailed the names of everyone in the car to the authorities investigating the Russan spy ring.
Happy July 4th everyone from The LG Report!
