Today we're all painfully aware there are much bigger things in the world to worry about than what a Jersey Shore cast member is up to, but in between sending our good thoughts to the people of Japan, let's all take a moment to marvel at the douchebaggery of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.
Inexplicably, Sorrentino was recently invited to take part in a Comedy Central roast focused on Donald Trump. Since these specials typically feature a host of well-known comics ripping their honoree to (hilarious) shreds, it's unclear why anyone thought Sorrentino would be a good fit, but the Comedy Central writers tried to accomodate—they preemptively spelled House Speaker John Boehner's name phonetically (as "BAYNER") on Sorrentino's cue card so he wouldn't flub the joke.
Naturally, he did anyway.
"Check it out," Sorrentino announced. "Doesn't his name sound like boner? Anyone notice that ... boner?"
Apparently Sorrentino performed so poorly, he became the first roaster in more than a decade that was actually drowned out with heckles and boos. He attempted to get a laugh with a comment directed at Snoop Dogg, but perhaps unsurprisingly, it didn't go over very well:
"Hey, Snoop Dogg! Donald Trump and your ancestors had a lot in common ... they owned real estate, and your ancestors were property!"
Obviously Sorrentino should stick to tanning beds and gyms instead of the stage, but I suppose we can't blame him entirely. I highly doubt he wrote any of the jokes himself, after all, and most of the other comics' jokes were no more politically correct.
By the way, New York Post writer Don Kaplan reports that Sorrentino "smelled strangely like a hot dog up close." It's funny, if someone had asked me to guess what The Situation's odor situation was like, I think "processed meat product" would have been at the top of my list. Isn't it nice to know that celebrities are sometimes just like you imagined they would be?
