Oh look, people are fighting over who created MTV’s Jersey Shore, and surprisingly, it’s so that they can lay claim to it, instead of pointing out who we should tie to a stake and throw stones at. Seriously, did you know they’re considering listing the show as a war crime now?
The writer, Christopher Gambale, claims he came up with a show called “Guidos: The Reality Series” back in 2006 which would focus on “stereotypical guidos and guidettes” doing things like “GTL before hitting the clubs.” Dude says he pitched the idea to MTV … but never got a response — until he sent them a letter threatening to sue.

Yes, because pointing a camera at orange, spikey-haired date-rapists is the most original idea ever. It’s not like Maury Povich ever made a shit-ton of money off of this concept. On that note, I just came up with the idea of making a car that flies. Anybody who steals my idea will be sued for millions upon millions of dollars because that’s how laws work!
