‘Jersey Shore”s Snooki Teaches NBC’s Matt Lauer Some New Words

On this morning’s “Today,” NBC’s Matt Lauer sat down with “Jersey Shore” star and author Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and was fascinated by the shore vernacular in her new book, “A Shore Thing.”  Lauer asked Snooki to define some of the perplexing words such as “weenis,” “badonk,” “Bennies,” — and one new vocabulary word that Snooki advised Lauer to not use on TV.

As we reported Snooki’s show saw gorilla-sized ratings last week — and her new book was published last Tuesday.
