Whether you like them or not, Snooki, The Situation and company will long be missed. The “Jersey Shore” cast created a legacy durable enough that other reality TV wannabes are happy to carry on their traditions in their absence. “Mexico Shore,” which is exactly what it sounds like, is now in the works to fill the void that the Seaside Heights meatballs left in our reality-loving hearts.

When the cat’s away, the mouse will play. Unless you padlock the mouse’s pants shut so she can’t cheat on you. Or go to the bathroom.
Police in the Mexican state of Veracruz removed a padlock from a 25-year-old woman’s blue jeans after she came to them in “excruciating pain” from not being able to go to the bathroom. Why did she have a lock on her pants, you ask? Her 40-year-old boyfriend Jose Antonio padlocked her pants shut, so she wouldn’t be able to cheat. Romance! Keep reading »
