pop-culture-demotivator-jersey-shore-doing-it-wrong

From the clothes we wear to the games we play, we are all individuals.  Unique, delicate little flowers chock-full of free will, self-determination, and our own thoughts, dreams, and ideas.  Well, ideally we could be bastions of individuality, free from influence, but then there’s that damn pop culture thing around every corner you turn!  BAM, it’s on your TV!  BANG, it’s in your closet!
