Snooki flips off Philadelphians on live TV at the Wing Bowl; hilarity ensues

Feb 5, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

Not a good idea for New Jersey pseudo-celebrities to intrude on proud Philadelphia traditions. So when Snooki from The Jersey Shore showed up to help officiate the 18th annual Wing Bowl at the Wachovia Center on Thursday, she got the traditional Philadelphia greeting (use your absolutely filthy imagination here). And being the classy lady that she is, the reality diva responded the only way she knew how; by flipping off the crowd on live TV. Ah, this is why the terrorists hate us. The Wing Bowl never fails to disappoint.
The glorious video follows the jump



From TMZ:

Snooki hit up a chicken wing eating contest in Philadelphia this morning — but when the haters started booing the “Jersey Shore” star, she promptly told the whole city to cluck off with the flick of her little finger.

Ironically, the winner of the Wing Bowl was also from Jersey. Returning champ John “Super Squibb” Squibb of Berlin, N.J., consumed 238 wings in just over three rounds. From CBS News:

PJ Whelihan’s in Haddonfield, Penn., cooked up 9,000 wings for the 29 contestants participating in the 18th annual Wing Bowl competition traditionally held the Friday before the Super Bowl.

Of course, the competition would not have been complete without the help of the scantily clad, sometimes naked, “Wingettes.” This year, Snookie from the popular MTV show “Jersey Shore,” was among the girls whose job was to keep the competitors eating while cheering them on and entertaining the crowd.

“Sometimes naked” is my favorite pairing of two words when describing a live sporting event.
