Snooki Thinks Organic is Kosher

FOR THOSE HOPING TO GET a better understanding of the Jewish dietary laws, I hope they won't look to the Jersey Shore's Snooki for guidance. In the reality TV show "Snooki and JWoww," which is a spin off of "The Jersey Shore," Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi proves she is clueless about the definition of kosher food.

In a sneak peak of the upcoming show (video below), Snooki tells her mom Helen that she will be moving in with her best friend Jenni “JWoww ” Farley. Discussing grocery shopping, Snooki asks her mom “Is kosher the right word for Jenni?”

Snooki’s mom replies, “I do know that’s the food that Jewish people eat.” They then say in unison with a laugh, “Jenni’s not Jewish!”

Snooki then attempts to explain her understanding of kashrut, the Jewish dietary laws: “I think kosher food is like organic, healthy food. But Jewish people eat organic food too, so I feel like it’s all the same.”

Okay then!

No word yet on whether Snooki will be hired to be Hebrew National's new spokesperson.
