As a native of the Garden State, I've mostly excused myself from the uproar over whether MTV's douche-riddled "Jersey Shore" is just a forty ounce visual chugfest of negative stereotypes. Mostly, I'm impressed at how far self-tanner technology has come since my younger days. But when Alyssa Milano lent herself to a Funny or Die parody of Dove's eye-opening "Evolution" spot, her Snookie-fication could not unnoted. And it proves that with a little help, any girl -- even a Hollywood actress from Brooklyn -- can become a Jersey girl.
