I would like to open by answering the question posed in the title of this article of whether it matters if Snooki is pregnant and the answer is absolutely not. Having written this, I would like to explain further why it is that it does not matter that Snooki may or may not be pregnant.
Snooki is, for lack of a better word, fiction. It does not matter that she is part of a reality television program. If there is anything I have learned from over a decade of the existence of the so-called reality television, it is that there is very little reality in reality television.
We live in an age in which Kim Kardashian continues to pervasively invade our lives through appearing on cover after cover of entertainment magazines with subjects varying from her failed marriage to allegations that the failed marriage was completely fabricated.
The issue is therefore that of consequence and when it comes to the matter of young Snooki being pregnant, there are no long term consequences and when history looks back on 2012, it will be remembered for many things but none of them will be whether or not Snooki was pregnant in March.
What I continue to not understand is why the television show on which Snooki is a major star continues to be so extremely popular considering that there is absolutely no reality to it. I grew up in New Jersey and I spent summers regularly going to the Shore and I can assure you that the Shore that I saw in my life is nothing like the Shore that is represented on the television program of that name.
It is quite possible that every single person who watches The Jersey Shore is fully aware of the fact that it is a fabricated reality that they are watching and that they are only watching because they want to make it real. They perhaps hope to push themselves onto the Shore scene and recreate what they see on the television show, not realizing that since it is entirely staged for their entertainment, any attempt to replicate the fake reality will inevitably lead to pain and possibly hospitalization or death.
I therefore implore the general reader to please consider the following and just ignore any report you may read regarding the pregnancy of one Snooki from the Jersey Shore. As the dear character of Linus once regularly said in the comic Peanuts, it really won’t matter in one hundred and fifty years.
