The Situation: soon to be a published author

It's a Monday in the dead of summer, one of those news days where all you hear is crickets. No one in pop land has done anything particularly outrageous or egregious, so we're left with this: Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, putative star of the reality series Jersey Shore, has signed a book deal.
The New York Post is reporting that Gotham Books will be releasing the title in November. If you've ever seen Jersey Shore, about a gang of dumb, horny, narcissistic layabouts, you might have wondered if Sorrentino ever read books, much less entertained writing one. The Situation hasn't got anything smart to say about human relationships, but he does possess ridiculously chiselled abs - which is more or less what the book, This Is The Situation, is about. Apparently, he will also provide tips on how to structure your day around GTL (gym, tanning, laundry).
The only question that needs to be answered is whether Sorrentino is a better writer than he is rapper (see above) - although it scarcely matters. This Is The Situation is bound to be the must-have gag gift this Christmas season.
