It was a sad birthday Situation tonight on Jersey Shore. Both Pauly D and Mike were celebrating their birthdays, but while lovable Pauly D was lavished with gifts, cakes, and dinner from his family and friends (and barber), Mike got nada.
It was a little sad seeing him left out like that ... until you remembered it was Mike, and he got (or didn't get in this case) exactly what he deserved. Snooki said it best: "That's what you get for being a f*cking douchebag."
Besides being ridiculously annoying, he's just mean-spirited and incredibly immature. In the beginning of the episode, he was still trying to break up Snooki and Jionni. Not because he wants a romance with her, or anything even slightly sympathetic like that, but just because he wants to be mean. When you act like that, you don't deserve cake ... especially when you only refer to yourself in the first person.
So his whole poor-me, I'm-always-the-bad-guy act just made him look even more detestable. Then, like the big baby he is, he dipped out and left his roommates wondering where he could be. If he's really leaving, I'd say good riddance, but more likely it's his ploy to get everyone to come looking for him, then tell him how much they love him and beg him to come back. Then he'll go right back to his douchebag ways.
In other house happenings, everyone was pretty much "wastey pants" the whole time, and smushing between shots. Not unlike most episodes of this show, but just realizing that Pauly D was turning 31 and Mike 29 and they are still acting like this was almost as sad as the fact that Pauly brought home a cougar with tattoos to smash in Vinny's honor. "I made her call me Vinny," he told Vinny.
Then there was meatball day, which was almost too painful to watch. Snooki drank so much she literally couldn't walk. Both of them might as well not even wear pants (or underwear) because everything they have is always hanging out; Deena "danced" so hard her hair became one big, huge knot. I know it makes me sound old, but I just can't imagine their parents watching this stuff.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see what happens with Mike and if we get lucky enough to see him go for good. A little new blood in the house could spice things up nicely. As long as it's not that chick from Bosnia -- what the hell was up with her?
Did you feel sorry for Mike on tonight's episode of Jersey Shore?
