'Jersey Shore' takes on Oscar Wilde, or is that the other way around?

Everyone knows Oscar Wilde was fond of one-liners, but would he have been a fan of “That’s what she said?” Moreover, how would the man who loved his bachelors have felt about The Situation? We’ll never know. But you can be sure that it is hysterical to watch Santino Fontana and David Furr, who play Algernon and Jack in Broadway’s current revival of Wilde’s Importance of Being Earnest at Roundabout Theatre Company, act out scenes from Jersey Shore as their very English characters (and in full 19th century costume). “Work blows d— for skittles right now” was apparently meant to be said with a stiff upper lip. Check out all five episodes their web series “Jersey Shore Gone Wilde” below. (Take heed: They contain profanity and are NSFW.)
