Pauly D and The Situation arrived at the airport last week with their bags packed, ready to head to Florence, Italy, to film season four of “Jersey Shore.” But they were told to hang tight as production has been postponed for a second time.

All the hookers have banded together and begun to wear nuns’ uniforms. Ha! Pia Covre, of the Committee for the Rights of Prostitutes, explained, “The idea of wearing gowns or habits down to the feet is to confront the decrees which limit even the freedom of what you can wear.” Ironically, now these whores are sticking it to the foolish Madonna complex.
