MTV’s surprise hit Jersey Shore is coming back for a second season. For those of us who dared to be different and didn’t watch the first round, but are finally giving in to that urge to witness The Situation’s antics, a few things may be a bit confusing. We may be perplexed by the overwhelming use of nicknames, baffled by the amount of styling gel the residents go through in a week, and frightened by Snooki’s knack for attracting random violence. But most of all, new Jersey Shore viewers will be confused by the slang that the residents of the house throw about. Guido jargon, if you will.

To remedy this unfortunate situation, we here at GG are providing you with the Jersey Shore Glossary, to aid you in your efforts to figure out what the heck “GTL” means.

Enjoy.
