New Jersey Mayor

Keep Snooki's Spin-Off

OUT of My Town!!!

Snooki and Jwoww's new spin-off just hit a nasty snag in New Jersey -- because the town where they planned to shoot the reality show has rejected their request for a film permit.

The Mayor of Hoboken Dawn Zimmer just made the announcement on her website, claiming the Hoboken Film Commission unanimously voted to deny the permit to 495 Productions "based on protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents."

According to the mayor -- there's a laundry list of problems with approving a 24-hour permit in Hoboken, the least of which is a local policy that prohibits ALL filming after 11pm in residential areas.

The mayor claims filming the show would result in an "unacceptable lessening of the quality of life for the local residents and businesses" -- causing traffic, creating large noisy crowds, and completely disrupting day-to-day life.

Of course, Snooki can also stimulate a local economy -- so is banning her really worth it? Probably.

"quality of life"? Can it get any worse if you already live in New Jersey? I guess if anyone could do it it'd be Snooki.

Stimulate the local economy? I dunno, does Hoboken need more bars and tanning salons?

Are you being sarcastic about it stimulating the economy? Do you really think their demographic will be asking their parents to take them to Hoboken? Put down the bong, Miley.

Snooki and her friends should move to the Hamptons. Now that would be fun to watch!
