'South Park' calls the Snooki phenomenon as they see it

Nicole Snooki Polizzi arrested in New Jersey

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was skewered on the "It's a Jersey Thing" episode of "South Park" that aired Wednesday night -- and apparently the "Jersey Shore" star liked it.

A snippet from the show that winds up in a showdown to stop the spread of Jersey, with an army of stereotypical New Jersey zombies:

"What is it?

"It's called a Snooki. It's very famous."

"That thing is famous? Why?"

"I don't know!"

So, yeah, Snooki liked being portrayed as a skeezily dressed, sexually aggressive Gollum with a pouf, desperately clutching a fruity cocktail, tweeting after the show aired, "Snooki want smoosh smoosh. im going to have nightmares tonight lmao!!! we've officially made it." That "smoosh smoosh" is a

reference to the Snooki caricature brutally sexually assaulting whichever cartoon male is closest.

See the attack of the Snooki at the 13-minute mark of the full episode here, and the monster's return around 18 minutes. Just remember, it's "South Park," which means it can get a little rough. California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger shows up as well, around the 11-minute mark, for a consult on the town of South Park's immigration issues.

Jonathan Lipnicki, are you jealous? Or thankful that, unlike us and South Park's Kyle, you're not from New Jersey?
