'Jersey Shore' goes Bostonian for a 'Wicked Summer'

As E! reports, Wicked Summer is looking for “the hottest girls and proudly buff guys who believe in God, family, politics, sports, beer and partying!” The casting site is kind enough to translate its requirements into Boston-ese, which appears to the untrained eye to basically be Jersey Shore-ese with occasional “ah”s on the ends of words most of us would pronounce with a vowel sound followed by an R: “You share a love for muscle cahs, hair products, and little necks on the frickin half shell. You don’t take s**t from nobody — least of all each othah.”

So, will this show be a wicked pissah or the chicken bawm?
