What’s more irritating than the news that a 22-year-old has scored a book deal during these grim times for publishing? The news that said 22-year-old is one Nicole Polizzi, better known to the cable TV-watching masses as Snooki. Yup, she’s writing a friggin’ novel, and the working title is A Shore Thing. Her publishers at Simon and Schuster say the book will “revolve around a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore).” That’s a relief, because we certainly don’t see enough of that in the sorta-real world of Jersey Shore.
Anyway, we could rant about this all day, or we could give you our list of 10 orange creatures more qualified to write a novel than Snooki. We assume you’ve already heard enough of the former, so you can find the latter after the jump.
