Is the 'Jersey Shore' craze over yet?

Season one of MTV's Jersey Shore

I don't watch "Jersey Shore," and I have no ill will toward The Situation and the Situationettes. I hope they get as much money as they can during their time in the spotlight.

But, for the love of Pete, enough is enough is enough with the exposure. They've only got about 45 seconds left in their 15 minutes. "Jersey Shore" cast members have become parsley in restaurants: They're everywhere.

For sure, the fist pump phenomenon, bad tans and big hair poofs may be new to some people, but here, we just call that "Long Island."

At least three times a day, I get an e-mail from some PR flack pimping something "Jersey Shore"-related. Seriously, please stop. Oh, there's a new animated spoof? How wonderful for you. Oh, the cast opened the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday? How did the hair gel index perform that day?

How many more seasons must we endure? How many more years will their club appearances be noteworthy promotable material on flyers?
