'Jersey Shore' goes to Japan; Can you come up with a better title than 'Macaroni Rascals'?

It was while doing the latter that we found a tasty item from March on CNN International. Apparently, in Japan, Jersey Shore’s title is Jersey Shore: The New Jersey Life of Macaroni Rascals. (CNN admits to a bit of self-censorship; the actual title is closer to Macaronia A–holes, which sounds like a put-down from Deadwood.) That title is pretty hilarious…albeit just a wee bit offensive. Cultural sensitivity is our watchword, so to our friends across the Pacific, here are a few somewhat less touchy title possibilities:

Jersey Shore: Men Who Cook and the Women Who Yell at Them

Jersey Shore: The Adventures of Mr. Circumstance and his Hooligan Gang

Jersey Shore: Small Woman Drinking Like a Sailor

Jersey Shore: ‘The Real World’ Minus the Gay Guy and the Black Guy

Jersey Shore: Gymnasium, Skin Cancer Laboratory, Laundromat

Jersey Shore: Ouch, My Head Hurts Every Morning!

Jersey Shore: An Exploration of the Hair Gel Industry

Jersey Shore: Shut Up, Angelina!

Jersey Shore: America Is Even Crazier Than You Thought

PopWatchers, can you come up with a better, more culturally aware title? And are you excited about the new episode?
